DAYTON SCULPTOR IN CINCINNATI YWCA “ESSENCE OF THE SOUL”

By Jud Yalkut

Two accomplished women portrait artists are showing in the two-person “Capturing the Essence of the Soul” at the YWCA Women’s Art Gallery at 898 Walnut Street in Cincinnati through September 27. Dr. Lois Fortson of Dayton (shown) does magnificent and feeling portrait busts and credits her training at the Dayton Art Institute for her interest in ceramic sculpture. Most of her subjects are women and men who have contributed significantly to our community. Painter Carin Hebenstreit was born and educated in Europe studying the Renaissance masters, and she glazes layers of paint over underpainting to create inner luminosity, as in her portrait of Maestro Paavo Jarvi at Cincinnati’s Music Hall. For hours and information call (513) 241-7090 or visit ywca.org/cincinnati.
