Fine Arts alumnus Jimmy Baker (CCAD 2002) was interviewed in the February 2011 issue of Cincinnati Magazine for his upcoming exhibition, Remote Viewing, at the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati.
“Baker’s art world star has been on a quick ascent,” Kathy Y. Wilson wrote in her article Cincinnati Kid: Jimmy Baker. “Two months after graduating with an MFA in painting from the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning in 2004, he landed a group show at Foxy Production art gallery in New York. One year later there were shows in Philadelphia and Chicago. The same year, Country Club gallery’s Christian Strike took some of Baker’s images with him to Los Angeles and soon the prestigious Roberts & Tilton Gallery came calling with an offer of a show and representation. Since then, his work has hung in museums and galleries in Paris, London, and Basel, Switzerland, and has been purchased for private collections internationally.”
Remote Viewing opens at 8 p.m. on February 25 and runs through April 10. The Contemporary Arts Center is located at 44 E 6th St., Cincinnati. For more information, call 513.345.8400 or visit the center’s website.
