Susan Byrnes is a visual artist whose early studies in photography, film and video, and later studies in traditional cast metal sculpture and audio production have resulted in conceptually-based art that encompasses a variety of media.  Dress the Birds is a multimedia installation with cast-iron, video, skeleton x-ray images, plaster and natural fibers.

Diana Duncan Homes is a photo-based visual artist who also collaborates on artists’ books, primarily with poet, Timothy Riordan. Her work involves photos, drawing, painting, collage, video, text-in combination or alone. This selection of photography, some with Riordan’s poetry, is part of collector Walter Burton’s private estate.

The Requiem Project, Inc. is a 501-c3 not-for-profit fine arts company with the mission to re-establish the historic Emery Theatre as an interdisciplinary arts center. The heartbeat of The Requiem Project is the creation of a space for creative possibility and to offer opportunities to listen to passionate voices through artistically based programming, education, and community initiatives. The Requiem Project fosters a multitude of opportunities for artistic collaborations and offers arts-based educational opportunities through live music, theatre, dance, film and visual arts exhibitions.

 The Requiem Project’s new office is located at 29 East 12th Street (around the corner from The Emery and across from The Art Academy).  This new space will continue to draw attention to the hopeful revival of The Emery and reflect The Requiem Project’s dedication to re-opening a national music icon.


Adrian Legg, virtuoso guitarist comes to Cincinnati

October 15, 2013


We’ve been spending some time with local legend and Emery musician, Ric Hordinski. Ric (monk) is beginning a curatorial series at his intimate and magnificent, Monastery in Walnut Hills. The Monastery is a re-purposed centenarian church that has been home to over a century of music, from classical to folk, pop, jazz, hip-hop and indie rock. Functioning currently (mostly) as a recording studio—The National was there last month, as well as Emery friends Over The Rhine and Daniel Martin Moore, The Monastery offers services to musicians including producing, arranging and composition. In addition to capturing sounds for posterity, the studio hosts live music and other events.  This Sunday night marks the beginning of what will soon become an unforgettable series.


Guitar Magazine’s “Guitarist of the Decade”

The Monastery

We could wax poetic, but here are the true reviews:

"There are guitarists, there are axe-wielding maniacs, and then there are wizards. Adrian Legg is one of the wizards. He has enough technique to do just about anything he wants, but also the sensitivity to honour the contours of a melody." – Philadelphia Enquirer

"To say Legg plays a good guitar is like saying Menuhin saws a fine fiddle.This man is ridiculously talented."-Music Week

"…Legg is, above all, a guitarist of great power, invention and versatility… Through fast-fingered picking, spontaneously layering parts and occasional ringing harmonics, he sounds like an orchestra." -St. Petersberg Times
