The autumn arts and fundraising scene is in full swing. And with so many great events coming up, narrowing this installment of “Weekend Picks” has been pretty tough. There are plenty more from which to choose in our A/C Calendar and Datebook. Enjoy!
Autumn Air Art Fair & Tiger Lily Press Print Sale | Clifton Cultural Arts Center
Nov. 5, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. • 3711 Clifton Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45220
With only seven weeks until Christmas, this may be the right time to look for unique gifts to surprise those who have everything.
The CCAC will be jammed with artworks Saturday, with not one, but two art sales. The Autumn Art Fair, established by artists to support future artists, includes works by more than 50 area creatives – paintings, fiber art, jewelry, glass and wood. Proceeds go to scholarships at the Art Academy of Cincinnati.
The annual sale by Tiger Lily Press offers original etchings, screen prints, woodblocks, collagraphs, lithographs, and linocuts – framed and unframed. All prints are limited edition, hand-made by exhibiting artists. Also available is Tiger Lily’s 2017 fundraising calendar, a biennial offering of 12 unique prints available for $45. We at Movers & Makers are proud owners of the 2015 edition, which (although at times a bit confusing!) still adorns our kitchen wall.

Rachmaninoff “All-Night Vigil,” Op. 37 | College-Conservatory of Music
Nov. 6, 3 p.m. • Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption • 1140 Madison Ave., Covington, KY 41011
A rare opportunity to hear this gorgeous work, otherworldly in atmosphere and singular in its beauty. Even more scarce are the bass voices able to traverse its depths, but conductor and CCM choral department head Earl Rivers has made sure this performance has them. Rivers considers this one of his best-ever Chamber Choirs, and that’s saying something. Plus, the unique beauty of the Basilica is always worth a visit.
