Cleveland Lonely Arts Club Show:
A Beatles inspired show

The E11even 2 Gallery
July 17th through August 21st

This 33 person show has a unique twist. Each artist was given two assignments; first, each artist was given a square to

re-create in their individual style. That square will be added to a collage of The Beatles measuring 80" x 112". This collaborative piece, and prints from it, will be for sale. Additionally, each artist was asked to create a piece of art reflecting a song from the Sergeant Pepper album. The opening reception will take place during the 78th Street Studios Third Friday art walk.

The 78th Street Studios is located at 1305 West 80th St. Cleveland, OH 44102
