Florida Keys Team-Building Retreat

wishyouwerehere1

Last week the Ledge team headed down to the sunny Florida Keys for a much needed retreat to recenter and re-energize the group. We brought along photographer Bob Scott, who documented the lovely sights in a series of stunning infrared photographs.

We spent our time practicing yoga on the beach, hiking, meditating, and brain-storming ways to strengthen our staff and programming capabilities. We even made a new friend:

We loved Mr. Scott’s documentation of the retreat so much that we invited him to be our next exhibiting artist. Wish You Were Here: Postcards from the Edge, his solo exhibition of Florida Keys infrared photography, opens Fri 10 Nov 2017 6-9pm as part of Walk on Woodburn. Find us at at 2718 Woodburn Ave. along with the WoW Pop-Up Shop in the same space. Hope to see you there!

The exhibition Hometown Heroes: Lost and Found in Translation was the last in our gallery space. It featured photo illustrations of Cincinnati’s hometown heroes by artist and graphic designer Dave McCabe, along with a selection of fascinating artifacts borrowed from the McCabe Family Archive in Mt. Adams.

Gallery guests marveled at the level of detail in the work, and got a closer look with the aid of miniature magnifying glasses provided by Ledge staff:

As with every Ledge opening reception, there were scale-appropriate treats:
