Five Questions with Lori Kella: Looking Past the Horizon at William Busta Gallery

William Busta Gallery: Most people take their outdoor photographs outdoors, don’t they?   Lori Kella: Yes I’m sure most do, but I was always dissatisfied with the exact scene in front of me, so I started building  landscapes myself. By creating artificial worlds I can merge different parts of the landscape as well as different places. In  my photographs I create a world that is partly based on […]

Expansion had just begun from the established studios on the second floor. I  heard about the building from a friend, and as a transplanted resident of Lakewood, I was intrigued. After years of taking  my ceramics from show to show I saw […]

CAF presents Pioneering Modernism: Post Impressionism in Cleveland, 1908-1913

In May, 2013, the Cleveland Artists Foundation celebrates the range and excellence of art and designs created by members of Cleveland’s early Modernist art community. Cleveland has long been remarkable among American cities for the whole-hearted way in which its artist community embraced Modernism during the early years of the twentieth  century. Encouraged by a close relationship with the Cleveland School of Art, regional modernism flourished far from the  European […]

Tregoning & Co. presents The Janus Effect: Looking Forward-Looking Back

Recently gallerist and art dealer Bill Tregoning examined some remarkable contemporary photographs created through 19th century techniques. Artist-photographer Christopher Pekoc was the conduit; Pekoc was stricken by the  photographs, as was Tregoning—enough so that the gallerist invited Pekoc to curate an exhibition featuring the four  photographers’ work. The simultaneous notion of looking forward and backward invokes the Roman god of the New Year: Janus –depicted in antiquity in double profile, simultaneously looking left […]

Behind Closed Doors: A Work in Progress

My artist friends know the drill. When my studio door is propped open with a paint can, that’s my invitation to come in.  Maybe I’ve been holed up in my studio for hours, and the fumes from my oil paints are beginning to get to me. Or maybe  I’m heading down a precarious new path and need an empathic soul and a fresh set of eyes to […]

Kenneth Paul Lesko Gallery presents Troy Gua and Tom Yody

Troy Gua [Seattle, WA] May 17th – July 13th, 2013 Troy Gua is an artist whose work investigates identity, celebrity and popular culture. His Pop Hybrid series is a unique, superimposition of iconic faces and imagery, instantly recognizable on their own, but dissolved into a kind of Rorschach  inkblot puzzle when merged—each viewer seeing something different, making his or her own subjective associations. The resulting hybrid image is a new […]
