Founded in 1962, Carl Solway Gallery celebrates its 55th year in operation. The gallery was elected to the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) in 1968 and more recently joined the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA). Carl Solway Gallery is the only member of the ADAA in the tri-state region of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The gallery occupies 12,500 square feet of space in an historic warehouse in Cincinnati’s West End neighborhood.

Carl Solway Gallery specializes in modern and contemporary art including painting, sculpture, graphics and new media incorporating video and electronics. Gallery activities include fabrication of large-scale sculpture, publication of print editions and multiples, organization and circulation of museum exhibitions worldwide, and corporate collections consultation and installation.

Ann Hamilton is internationally known for large-scale multimedia installations. Her ephemeral environments create immersive experiences that poetically respond to the architectural presence and social history of their sites. In addition to these large installations, she is known for smaller-scale multiples and print editions. Among her many honors, Hamilton has been the recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship, NEA Visual Arts Fellowship, Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award, Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture and the Heinz Award. She represented the United States in the 1991 São Paulo Bienal and the 1999 Venice Biennale, and her work has been extensively exhibited around the world.

Born in Lima, Ohio, in 1956, Ann Hamilton received a BFA in textile design from the University of Kansas in 1979 and an MFA in sculpture from the Yale School of Art in 1985. From 1985 to 1991, she taught on the faculty of the University of California at Santa Barbara. In 1992, she established her home and practice in Columbus, Ohio. Since 2001, she has been a professor of art at The Ohio State University.

Alan Rath has made contributions to the field of contemporary sculpture and new media that have received significant acknowledgement worldwide. His work is included in such major collections as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Hara Museum (Tokyo). Born in Cincinnati in 1959, he lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Erwin Redl—an Austrian-born artist based in Bowling Green, Ohio, and New York City—is best known for large-scale light installations for art museums, public buildings and corporations. His work transforms the medium of light into immersive, tangible experiences for viewers. His architectural environments translate complex mathematical algorithms and other methods inspired by computer code into contemplative, minimalist spaces further activated by his use of motion and rhythmic sequencing.
