Side by Side: Exhibit of Paired Works Features Artists and their Professors

Tapped 13

13th Annual Exhibit of Paired Works by Artists and their Current or Former Instructors at Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio


Out of respect for this artist-teacher bond, and in honor of teachers working hard to help artists tap into a higher mind relative to art and life, Manifest is proud to present TAPPED, an annual exhibit that presents paired works of art by current or former artist/teacher pairs.

For this exhibit 70 artists submitted 212 works from 23 states and 2 countries, England and the United States. Fourteen works by the following 14 artists from 8 states and England were selected by a blind jury process for presentation in the gallery and the Manifest Exhibition Annual publication.

The artists are listed in pairings to illustrate their teacher/student relationship (past or present). Works on view will include paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs. The exhibition layout is planned so that each pair of artists’ works will be shown side-by-side or in close proximity.

Visitors will be able to enjoy the variety of types of works while also considering the nature of influence between professor and student.

Be There: Ticketed Preview on Thursday, Dec. 15, prior to opening day. Public opening Friday, Dec. 16, at Manifest Gallery. Exhibit runs through Jan. 13.
