Art Gallery Opening Reception & Book Signing

Friday, January 14, 2022

The public is invited to attend an opening reception for the Art Gallery and a book signing by John Kiesewetter, author of "Joe Nuxhall: The Old Lefthander & Me." Light refreshments provided.

In the Gallery: John Wiehe presents “Connecting Past with Present: The Never-Ending Struggle for Civil Rights”
John Wiehe is a self-taught artist who brings to life his project by using oils to create portraitures of civil rights leaders. The project is a collection of portraits that also includes a brief biography of the influential civil rights leaders spanning from enslavement to contemporary times. His hope is that the exhibit will inspire others to learn more about the history and effects of racism.
The exhibit is on display from January 15 - February 27.
Book Signing: Kiesewetter, longtime Cincinnati TV/media reporter for the Cincinnati Enquirer and NPR affiliate WVXU-FM, and a lifelong Reds fan, become friends with his baseball hero while "The Old Lefthander" was doing Reds broadcasts with Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman. Kiesewetter's book is packed with behind-the-scenes stories of the epic pranks played by Brennaman and Nuxhall, the games they called that made baseball history, and the loveable, irrepressible personality of "Hamilton Joe" Nuxhall, who was the face and voice of the Reds for decades.
