Portrait and figurative artist, Marlene Steele will present CSO music director, Louis Langree with a gift portrait in honor of his birthday, January 11th. This presentation will be made after the CSO Friday evening performance by the artist, Marlene Steele of Cincinnati, a practicing portrait artist for 24 years and recently appointed by the Portrait Society of America as “Arts Ambassador of the State of Ohio”.
Ms Steele has painted the portraits of numerous people of note in the area, teaches classes and seminars related to figurative drawing and painting, and has also gained respect as an effective courtroom artist.

Artists from the 5th Street Gallery, Cincinnati Ohio, where Steele exhibited in September, will be creating studio art in the north section of the Music Hall vestibule before and during the performance.
The 5th Street Gallery is an artist run co-operative gallery in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. The member artists of the 5th Street Gallery are dedicated to expanding awareness of the arts in Cincinnati and plan on more collaborative projects with the CSO in the future. An art show for the CSO musicians who are also involved in the visual arts is being discussed. The gallery is located at the corner of 5th and Race on the street level of the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza.
Hope to post a sneak peek of the painting after it is presented.
