No Pulp Fiction at Cleveland Artists Foundation

NO PULP FICTION AT CLEVELAND ARTISTS FOUNDATION Cleveland-based artist, Tom Balbo, has garnered numerous awards during his 30-plus years as an artist, initially working  in ceramics and printmaking with a growing interest in paper casting and pulp paintings.

Recognizing Excellence with Red Dot

If you’ve ever received an award that’s not-quite-suitable for framing, or chucked a giveaway paperweight that was all  about the corporate logo, you might have wondered why companies throw good money after bad swag. Commemorating  achievement and loyalty is a business-world staple, but it doesn’t have to be done with boring “lumps of plastic,” says  RED DOT Project Executive Director Christy Gray. RED DOT Project, the nonprofit artist registry, helps […]

Art is Energy

Don’t believe it? Try to recall the artwork from the last hotel or motel room you stayed in. We’ll wait. If you can’t remember, it’s not your fault. Lots of businesses buy bland, mass-reproduced art chosen for color coordination rather than to awaken the senses. RED DOT Project, Northeast Ohio’s nonprofit arts registry, sets the bar higher. We believe that expertly crafted art produced by local painters, sculptors […]

Alterations at Survival Kit Gallery

Alteration is different from creation. Or is it? Artists Sarah Isenhart, Jessica Pinsky, and Beth Whalley make certain that  the added lines, textures, and patterns in their work yield results as rich and independent as the original. Sarah Isenhart, stitching over the ragged topography of old pictorial maps, uses embroidery as both a decorative and  sculptural tool. Her meticulous needlework pays homage to laborious women’s craft techniques while inspiring […]

Survival Kit Wonders “Who is Deborah Ellen Shore?”

Exploring the former Westinghouse Electric Building on the eastside of Cleveland, artist Dave Desimone stumbles upon hundreds of Kodak slides scattered across the floor among broken computers and tires. These photographs were not here before. Gathering them, he assumes they are images related to the site. He takes them home and scrutinizes, at first  simply attracted to their composition. They are in fact, remarkably out […]

Character Split at Survival Kit

Conjured through peculiar collages sourced from cut-up, computer generated images and kids’ disposable party plates, and surreal imagery drawn with unerring draftsmanship, the imagined characters created by Clarke Curtis (Austin, TX) and Tyler Zeleny differ only in their form and narrative. Personified through bold, black and white prints, and playful, multicolored combinations, both artists’ sets of characters convey human attributes and gestures that encourage the viewer to suppose hypothetical conversations or confrontations, the […]
