Kokoon Arts Gallery’s Fond Farewell


Kokoon Arts Gallery has had a great run, but it is time for a change.  The Gallery will close at the end of 2016.  I thank Dan Bush for creating the remarkable 78th Street Studios, now the largest arts facility in Cleveland. We must also thank our patrons and visitors for their appreciation, support and encouragement. We have participated in the incredible growth of this unique arts facility for 10 years and helped nurture the popular Third Friday events. Moving forward, I will concentrate on private art sales, and educational and independent projects. I will remain in the building across the hall in Room 207. I hope you will continue to check in to see what’s new.


During the last few months of 2016, Kokoon Arts Gallery will showcase our finest artists publicly one last time. Our primary historic artists are Frank Wilcox, Paul Travis, Jean & Paul Ulen, and William E. Scheele. Contemporary artists include Charles Herndon, Gary Spinosa, Mary Wawrytko, Donna Webb, Randall Tiedman, Michael Prunty and Andrea LeBlond. There will also be a special offering of original Kokoon Arts Club material for sale.


Please come and help us celebrate our shift from public gallery operations to a new approach: beginning in 2017, William G. Scheele will operate as WGS Productions. Again, I thank you for a remarkable experience.
