CPR premieres works of Andy Sweet
Just when his work was gaining a following, street and documentary photographer Andy Sweet’s sudden death in 1982 diverted attention from his art, which celebrated the South Beach, Florida, of the late 1970s. March 13 will see the Cleveland debut of Sweet’s rediscovered work in the exhibition Shtetl in the Sun, turning an eye to the pastel-hued environs and lively culture of the old-world Jewish retiree inhabitants of that halcyon era. Forming the basis of the book and documentary, The Last Resort—favorably reviewed in the New York Times—Sweet’s photographs present a colorful time capsule that must not be missed.
CPR is also excited to present our sixth annual open-call juried exhibition, The Peer Show, judged this year by New York photographers Lissa Rivera, whose Beautiful Boy exhibition graced our walls in 2017, and Ruddy Roye, whose award-winning work has also been featured in our gallery. The exhibition, with cash prizes in five categories, opens Friday, June 5, and will feature works in all photographic media: digital, hand-processed black-and-white, and a variety of alternative processes. The Peer Show Call for Art, with submissions being accepted from March 1 through April 24, can be found on our website at clevelandprintroom.com/exhibition-submission along with rules and submission instructions.
