Wall Eye Gallery Presents Final Exhibition 9.23


FRIDAY, 9.23, 2011, 6—11PM

SATURDAY, 9.24, 12—5PM
SUNDAY, 9.25, 12—4PM

We all played it in some form or another when we were kids. Conventional, make-believe, real, surreal. In the exhibition Playing House, four artists, Stephanie Rond, Stephanie Lipscomb, Sharon Dorsey, and Linda Ayala recall what it meant to “play house”.

“It is with mixed emotions to announce that Wall Eye Gallery will be closing in October of this year. After much deliberation we have decided to end our two year run. The seven partners have either had a life change, new job, new opportunities involving more responsibilities, or the desire to focus on artistic careers. It has been difficult to balance these changes while continuing to organize Wall Eye’s shows.

Wall Eye Gallery will no longer be a brick and mortar space, we will have an online presence to share news of other shows in Cleveland, competitions, news about the art world and interviews with artists. But maybe you’ll see us pop-up from time to time.”

One of the great events of the arts calendar, Cleveland Museum of Art's Chalk Festival 2011 will be held Saturday, September 17th, from 11AM to 5PM and Sunday, September 18th, from noon to 5PM.

Preparatory workshops on chalk making and street painting will be held on
Wednesday, September 14th, from 6–8PM.

Children and adults enjoy this annual event where community members join professional artists in using the walkways around the Fine Arts Garden as a colorful canvas. Begun in 1990, our festival is a modern expression of a Renaissance tradition from 16th-century Italy, in which beggars copied paintings of the Madonna by Raphael and his contemporaries, using chalk on the plazas outside cathedrals. Watching the chalk artists and enjoying the entertainment is free. Featured Chalk Artists include: Mark Jenks, A. D. Peters, Jesse Rhinehart, Jan Stickney-Kleber, Rafael Valdivieso, and Robin VanLear with Robin Heinrich.
