Greiwe Development, the developer of the Residences at One Highland in Fort Thomas, will host a two-day public art event designed to showcase the development while highlighting the city’s Cultural Arts District. The event, coined The Art of Living at One Highland, is free and open to the public from noon to 4. p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, June 10 and 11.

The show is curated by Terri Schmitt, a painter, designer and new resident of the One Highland project. More than 100 paintings by regional artists along with fine artists and sculptors curated by the ADC Fine Art Gallery, will be display on the third floor of the building at 1 Highland Avenue.

“It’s an honor to curate such an incredible collection from local artists and our friends at the ADC Fine Art Gallery and the Fort Thomas Cultural Arts Center,” Schmitt said. “I’m pleased to showcase this wonderful place to live and the incredible arts and culture scene that is growing here.”

Developer Rick Greiwe said Fort Thomas is in the midst of an economic and cultural renaissance.

“The community saw an opportunity for a unique art showcase as part of a burgeoning Cultural Arts District, while at the same time celebrating the new residential community of One Highland and the vibrant downtown environment,” Greiwe said. “We’re excited to bring this special experience to Fort Thomas.”

Artists featured include Schmitt, M.P. Wiggins, Donna Talerico, Stephanie Skurow, Nancy Nordloh Neville, Carol MacConnell, M. Katherine Hurley, Jolie Harris, Nelle Ferrara, Tracy Casagrande Clancy and Ted Borman, as well as those represented by ADC Fine Art. Also featured is a special tribute to Fort Thomas artist Beverly Erschell, whose work will be displayed in the entrance lobby of the building.
