It's First Friday! Time to enjoy a delightful evening of shopping and dining in Bellevue on Fairfield Avenue. Since it's also Cinco de Mayo, enjoy the extra fun that's in store for you below including two Grand Openings!
Cedric Michael Cox is best known for his paintings and drawings, which fall between surrealism and representational abstraction. His work expresses themes ranging from mythical literature to the relationships between the physical body, musical allegories, and natural and man-made landscapes.
As a student at the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture Art and Planning, Cox was awarded a fellowship to study at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland. After receiving his BFA in Painting in 1999, he began to exhibit locally and regionally.
Cox has had solo exhibits at the Contemporary Arts Center, the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center, PAC Gallery, and Weston Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts. In support of his efforts in the visual arts and art education communities, the City of Cincinnati awarded Cox the Individual Artist Grant in 2009. He received a Congressional Award in 2010.
His art has been featured in magazines, on television, and in the college textbook Drawing: Space, Form and Expression. In addition to his work being in corporate collections, Cox executed two large-scale public murals for the city of Cincinnati. His recent exhibits include the Museum of Science and Industry Chicago, the Phoenix Gallery, Chicago, Sacramento's Evolve the Gallery, the Harlem Fine Art exhibition, the Williamsburg Arts and Historical Center Brooklyn, NY, the National Arts League, Douglaston, NY and The Robeson Gallery at Pennsylvania State University. In 2013 Cox returned to Chicago for the Black Creativity exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry and in July of 2013 Cox had his first solo exhibition in New York at Five Myles Gallery in Brooklyn. In 2014, he returned to New York, exhibiting his work at the Skylight Gallery, Arcilesi/Homberg Fine Art and later that year he had a retrospective of his work at Northern Kentucky University followed by an exhibition at Thomas More College in 2015. Also in 2015 Cox was awarded the Yeck Artist in Residency at the Dayton Art Institute. Cox currently has a solo exhibition at the Taft Museum of Art and continues to live and work in Cincinnati.

It's time to celebrate! Everyone has places that are important to them. Places they care about. Places that matter. That's how we feel about our Fairfield Avenue historic shopping district. This Place Matters is a national campaign that encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities, and Preservation Month is the perfect time to share it with the world.
National Bike Month was established in 1956 to showcase the many benefits of bicycling - and encourage more folks to giving biking a try. Did you know you can ride Red Bike to the heart of our historic shopping district?
