The People’s Art Show, In the Galleries at CSU

Anthony Mastromatteo, Chiclet, White.

The Galleries at CSU, located at 1307 Euclid Avenue on Playhouse Square, are pleased to bring back the People’s Art Show this fall for the twenty-third time. The People’s Art Show is a Cleveland tradition reaching back into the early ’80s, celebrating freedom of expression, creativity, diversity and imagination. The exhibition is free and open to all—no judge, no jury, no taste police! Over 500 works of art by more than 300 artists are on display. Most works are for sale. The exhibition runs through December 7.

On January 18, two exhibitions open with a reception from 5:00 to 8:00pm to kick off the new year. In the North and Center Galleries, New York-based Italian sculptor Paolo Pelosini astounds audiences with his sublime and stirring exhibition Angels and Daemons, while in the South Gallery Akron-based Ohio artist Anthony Mastromatteo, amazes viewers with his exhibition titled Incurably Atomic—a series of meditations on the often-overlooked beauty of the very small. Mastromatteo presents realistically rendered one-inch paintings of actual-size mundane items transformed into visual gems and objects for serious and profound philosophical contemplation. The exhibition runs through February 23.

Viewing hours are Tuesday to Thursday, noon to 5:00pm; Friday and Saturday, noon to 7:00pm. Closed Sunday, Monday and university holidays.
