"Getting Weird" Opening Sat. 9.12 6PM–11PM

"Getting Weird" with artists Jake Kelly, Stephe D.K. and Ian P.E.

Opening Reception Saturday September 12th 6pm - 11pm (runs through September 27th)

Low Life Gallery
116001 Waterloo Rd
Cleveland OH 44110

Three of Cleveland's most subversive visual artists have come together for a gallery exhibition of new works that are sure to turn (and scratch) heads. Warped sensationalism, savage instincts, confused meanings, self-loathing and the absurdity of modern society will all be on display. Fittingly featured at Low Life Gallery, "Getting Weird" will not only display the new works of a few of Cleveland's most exciting underground artists, but also contain a wide (price) range of art - large scale masterpieces for the discerning collector as well as affordable smaller pieces for the enthusiast.

Jake Kelly Anyone who has ever walked into The Grog Shop has seen the work of Jake Kelly, he's also created nearly 1,000 fliers for almost every independent music venue in Cleveland over the last 10 years.

Stephe D.K. "Stephe DK" is the alias of Stephen Douglas Kuchna, who received a degree in art from Cleveland State University in 2007. His current body of work mixes aspects of Pop Art and Surrealism to create a dialogue about the strange conditions of our modern age.

Ian P.E. Known in Cleveland as the Editor/Owner of Pink Eye Magazine, Ian moved back to his native Cleveland two years ago after 10 years in San Francisco (and other places). His work for this show can be summed up as "absurd explorations into American leisure activities"...the mediums on display are acrylic and latex on wood panel - loud, colorful and detailed in their figurative representations.
