Fall / Winter 2018–2019 at the Shaker Historical Society’s Lissauer Gallery
The Shaker Historical Society is pleased to present more innovative exhibitions in the Lissauer Gallery this autumn. Learn about Leslie Dumm’s work starting in September; Deb Pinter will exhibit her latest work in November. This year the Lissauer Gallery launched a new schedule with free art openings every second Friday in odd numbered months. We hope to continue this regular schedule into 2019 as well. We are always seeking new Northeast Ohio artists to exhibit in our gallery, which is open whenever the Shaker Historical Museum is, thanks in part to a grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
Leslie Dumm has lived and worked in the Cleveland area since 1983. She was inspired to develop her painting technique after being captivated by works of influential and lesser-known artists such as Jackson Pollock and Katrin Fridriks. With degrees in physics and applied math, Leslie takes an analytical and experimental approach to her painting. Her works combine knife, brush, and pouring techniques to explore themes of nature, adventure, and emotion. Pouring techniques demand that she relinquishes some measure of control, which is turned over to gravity and viscosity.
Deb Pinter was born in Lakewood, and professionally she has worked and studied mostly in Northeast Ohio—with the notable exceptions of earning a Master of Arts from New York University/International Center of Photography and a residency in Dresden, Germany, through an exchange established between the Ohio Arts Council and the City of Dresden. This Cleveland Institute of Art graduate in photography cites inspiration from Ellen Brooks, Dennis Buck and John Reuter. Pinter’s photography also draws inspiration from nature and focuses on our place in it—drawing upon emotion and feeling.
The Shaker Historical Museum’s Lissauer Art Gallery at 16740 South Park Boulevard in Shaker Heights (Shaker-Lee Road RTA GREEN LINE stop) features art from Northeast Ohio artists. This intimate gallery is designed to encourage new and emerging artists, promote an appreciation of art, and support local artists. We are delighted to bring the work of Leslie Dumm and Deb Pinter to the Lissauer Gallery. Admission is free for their opening receptions only. Otherwise, visitors would be charged our standard admission for access to the museum, art gallery and research library (by appointment). Please state if you are only interested in the gallery, and we will waive the $5 admission fee in 2018.
