CSU Galleries’ New Space Filled with New Work
If you have not yet seen the new Galleries at Cleveland State University, you are missing out! Located in the historic Cowell & Hubbard Building at the corner of Euclid Avenue and East 13th Street, this state-ofthe- art new Gallery Space preserves many of the graceful features of the elegant old jewelry store that used to occupy the site – this in itself is worth a trip.
But you should come for the Art! This magnificent new venue opened only last September and has already surpassed expectations: The First Exhibition was a longoverdue faculty show and also featured works by distinguished photographer Jennie Jones; The People’s Art Show made its debut in the new space last fall with record participation and a sigh of relief that this beloved Cleveland tradition has survived the move.
If you did not see Animatopoeia, you missed an absolute gem, an exhibition of contemporary animal imagery that transfixed visors: Gazelles with disturbingly lifelike human faces, and a larger-than-life Grey Wolf amazed and delighted.
So come and check us out for the spring schedule: two Student Shows, March 29 to May 4; Hold The Wall: Trends In Contemporary Painting curated by Dan Tranberg in the North Gallery; Present And Accounted: The Cleveland Performance Art Festival in the Time Space media room; and Art for Hope: Helping Veterans through the Healing Power of Art in the South Gallery from May 17, to June 22. See you there!
