This weekend, one of N.E. Ohio's most respected artists and gallerists makes a long-awaited return as a curator. Opening Friday, Nov. 7, 6–9PM, Dana Depew's latest incarnation of 19, a group exhibition at Red Space inside Hotcards' World Headquarters, features an all-star roster of the area's robust talent in the visual arts.
The 19 participating artists include: Tom Bartel, Lissa Bockrath, Jeffry Chiplis, Ron Copeland, Matthew Dibble, Scott Goss, Brandon Juhasz, Mark Keffer, Michael Loderstedt, Doug Meyer, Jason K. Milburn, Dana Oldfather, Jenniffer Omaitz, Edward Raffel, Eric Rippert, Dan Tranberg, Mark Slankard, Grace Summanen and Laila Voss.
"The selected artists have the freedom to exhibit any work they feel comfortable with," adds Depew. "I usually do not know what each artist is going to exhibit until they drop off their work prior to the opening. With such a large grouping of artists in various mediums, the challenge is to make it all fit aesthetically with the intent of creating a cohesive and balanced exhibition."
The show is free and open to the public.
Opening reception Friday, Nov. 7, 6–9PM, Red Space Gallery, 2400 Superior Ave.
