Harris Stanton presents Rhythm in Repetition in Akron; ART-tini in Cleveland
The 2019 spring season at Harris Stanton Gallery begins with Rhythm in Repetition: New Works by Kate Snow and Terry Klausman, which opens on March 21 at our Akron gallery location. Subsequently, our Cleveland gallery location will host the 26th Annual ART-tini Auction, April 11 through April 18.
Cleveland-based artist Kate Snow studied printmaking and design at Zygote Press for five years. Snow’s intentional use of line, repetitive shape and a limited color palette compose pieces that are strategically both simple and complex. This stripped-down approach relies heavily on elements of design that allow the artist to explore the relationship between chaos and control. Snow’s delicate use of printmaking ink and gouache in combination with meditative mark-making summon the viewer to take pause, while simultaneously encouraging the eye to dance to the tempo of the paintings.
Akron-based artist Terry Klausman began his artistic career working in a variety of mediums. After a welding accident that almost severed a finger on his dominant hand, Klausman began to draw simple repetitive marks with his other hand as a form of physical rehabilitation. The marks began to form lines reminiscent of barbed wire or stitches when repeated obsessively across the surface of the paper. Klausman’s latest work fills the page with an expanded line and a fresh, vibrant palette. The result: beautifully composed Prismacolor pencil drawings where Klausman’s own language starts to emerge. His fluid compositions mix the recurring stitching with simple shapes to create drawings with three-dimensional elements that weave together serenity and contemplation in a rhythmic performance on Arches paper.
We are delighted to announce that this year’s ART-tini Auction, HSG’s annual silent auction to support local arts non-profits, will benefit the Cleveland Art Association (carta)! The ART-tini auction showcases over eighty pieces by international, regional and local artists represented by Harris Stanton Gallery. Pieces in the auction include fine art, jewelry, glass, and ceramics—all starting at a discounted price, twenty percent below retail! Bidding will open on April 11 and close with a vodka-themed party on April 18 from 5:30 to 8:00pm at our Cleveland gallery location. The general public is invited to enjoy the fun, festivities and bidding for a $15 admission charge, which is fully donated to the carta fund! It’s a great opportunity for collectors to start or expand their collection. The Annual ART-tini Auction gives back to the community while supporting our area’s local artistic talent!
