ArtiCle/Art In Cleveland Galleries, Studios, Creative Classroom
Claiming Our Space and Place
March 2–April 6
ArtiCle Gallery, located in the Waterloo Arts District, has an exciting schedule of exhibitions and art activities for Spring 2018. Guest Curator Mary Urbas, Lakeland Community College gallery director, has organized an exhibition of artworks in a variety of media by Cleveland artists Gail Crum, Jill Milenski and Gayle Pritchard, titled Claiming Our Space and Place.
For two decades these artists have supported each other and grown together with a shared aesthetic. They express themselves through media as diverse as painting, drawing, assemblage, collage and fiber. They share a passion for found objects, ephemera and color chosen to give voice to contemporary women’s issues and concerns—a pertinent exhibit in these #MeToo times.
Images, objects from daily life, tactile materials—things discarded, old and forgotten—connect the pieces and create a conversation for women: “I am important.” The artists feel compelled to put things back together, making them whole again.
Gallery 316: Al Fuchs Photography
Opening March 2
ArtiCle Gallery is excited to present Cleveland photographer Al Fuchs in his adjunct Studio/Gallery 316. Al has been a professional photojournalist and news photographer for many years. His work has been published throughout the world. His current project is an intimate and evolving gallery of his personal work and that of his camera associates. Visitors and photography collectors can enjoy seeing the newest work from Cleveland’s creative photography community.
Lisa Eastman: Nocturne
May 4–June 1
Guest Curator Mary Urbas, Lakeland Community College gallery director, brings renowned landscape painter Lisa Eastman to Collinwood in a rare solo exhibition, Nocturne. Lisa paints luminous oil landscapes that capture the beauty and mystery of her surroundings in dreamlike light and metaphor. Her ethereal moonscapes and waterscapes evoke a subtle surreal response to planet Earth. “I use light as a spiritual metaphor to give the viewer a sense of peace, love and harmony.” Visitors will experience the positive, calming and healing nature that Lisa’s art offers in these fast-paced times.

ArtiCle is proud to present Time for Art, a Creative Arts Classroom directed by Susan Ross, MA Art Therapy.
