Eastern Pole

Breanne Trammell maintains this informal exhibition on a pole in Cincinnati – #easternpole – check it out! Located at approximately 2927 Colerain Avenue, Cincinnati, OH. This is a photo related to my recent installation with red elbow-length satin gloves.

Eastern Pole is east of Western Pole, a project instigated by Jesse Malmed in Chicago, IL. Eastern Pole is stewarded, installed, and instagrammed by Breanne Trammell. Mostly weekly exhibitions of 8.5″ x 11″ works.

Weir Farm Artist Residency

by Ellen Mueller on June 13, 2018, no comments


I’m spending the month of June at Weir Farm Art Center‘s residency at Weir Farm National Historic Site. They provide a gorgeous studio and the grounds are beautiful (if you’re looking for a residency to apply to, I’d recommend this one). It’s been really interesting to learn about all the artists that have lived/worked at Weir Farm – the staff are so informed and enthusiastic!

While I’m here, I’m working on a series of drawings about various interpretations of the idea of survival. Some of my initial source material includes illustrations by Garth Williams from Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books.
