Shopping, Pancakes, Art, and Music at Heights Arts
Heights Arts celebrates the season with its 12th annual Holiday Store, featuring the works of over seventy regional artists through December 29 – the perfect place to find the perfect gift! What began in 2002 as a small pop-up gallery in a borrowed space on Lee Road has grown into Heights Arts’ bricks and mortar gallery, showcasing year-round the amazing artworks of the makers who live and work in Northeast Ohio.
With much gratitude to Tommy Fello, we jumpstart the New Year with the beloved and 14th Annual Tommy’s New Years Day Pancake Breakfast, where you can eat for art (all proceeds benefitting Heights Arts!) and ensure good karma for the coming year.
To begin the New Year, we are pleased to present a 2-person exhibition of works by painter Mark Keffer and printmaker Lisa Schonberg, opening on Friday, January 17. Featuring Keffer’s graphic abstract paintings alongside Schonberg’s vibrant nature-inspired works on paper, the show illuminates the artists’ shared strengths of constructing evocative compositions through a rigor of layering and patterning.
Our next Close Encounters chamber music concert brings Cleveland Orchestra oboist Mary Lynch to the stage on Sunday, February 9 at 3 pm, at a location to be announced. Mary has selected an eclectic chamber music program for oboe and strings including the rarely heard and lyrical masterpiece, the oboe quintet by William Bolcom.
