Loren, Loren, Loren, What in the world are you up to now?
As of this printing, my legal woes should be jettisoned into outer space. Hopefully all of my occupancy and alcohol permit issues are light years away. Now, bursting with ideas, I am preparing to launch stellar plans and events for 2015!
Satellite Second Orbit
Friday, March 6th from 6 to 9 p.m. Satellite Gallery will enter its second orbit with a new crew that includes Ross Bochnek, Nancy Frazier, Chris Martin, Anastasia Pantsios, Tina Ripley, Matthew Ryals and Gadi Zamir. These art explorers are creating highly imaginative inner worlds with installations including an interactive exhibit and an immersive sound experience!
Kids Clean Up
Erie Art Treasures will open on Saturday, June 27, 2015. This art adventure will be led by Grace Summanen and I, helping children collect garbage, cleaning up Collinwood’s Lake Erie shores. We will make art from this debris and flotsam which will be displayed in an outdoor gallery installation. Proceeds will go to a deserving local charity.
We will be collecting garbage on Saturday, May 16th, making art Sunday, May 17 and Saturday May 23. We will finish with an installation event and gallery opening Saturday, June 27, during the Waterloo Arts Festival.
This exciting opportunity is made possible through grants funded by Cuyahoga Arts and Culture and Neighborhood Connection. For details and to register for this free event, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Naji Art Scene Virtual Gallery continues to showcase new artists each week. We are always seeking artists with about 8-15 works of art to feature. After the initial presentation, all art remains in the virtual gallery, and can be viewed anytime. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in being a part of this cutting edge online art experience. Scroll through najiartscene.com to see what is new and explore previous exhibits.
And now for the big surprise!
Ooops, I can’t tell you yet: as of now it’s TOP SECRET, classified information. I will give you a hint though. It will be the biggest art event Cleveland has ever seen! If I tell you any more, I will have to…..
