  • S.Dot Gallery is so pleased to have Emily-Kitturah Westenhouser as our artist this month! Our director and E. met in 2003 when E. was helping to organize Ladyfest Ohio! (logo by Jenny Hart)

  • Have arts, will travel! Artist Bio "Emily has a complex history with dolls and dollhouses……….consequently she tends to work in miniature and avoid certain colors."

  • We are soooo excited!

  • Let's hear a bit about the show from E. Westenhouser. "We all have places we see on our daily travels that we cherish. When witnessing the destruction of ones of those places for a variety of reasons, some mourn individually or as a community. This work is about the loss of a specific historic house that has been just one of many to come down paving a way for….. In my mind, this home symbolized many usual things any historic family home would. In immaculate shape, it must have been loved…"

  • And, without further ado....

  • Dot, what are you trying to point out to us?

  • “In order to express our sense of reality we must use some kind of symbol: words or notes or shades of paint or television pictures or sculpted forms.
