Merit Scholars and more in the Galleries at CSU


The Galleries at CSU are happy to present two student exhibitions in the spring of 2015. In the North Gallery is the Merit Scholar exhibition: Works by recipients of the CSU Art Department Merit Scholarships. Over $40,000 is awarded each year in scholarships that recognize exceptional talent irrespective of financial need. All students, including incoming freshmen, are eligible to apply. In the Center and South Galleries is the 44th Annual Student Show, an exhibition organized by SOFA (Student organization for Fine Art). This juried exhibition with awards and prizes is a showcase for the creativity, and achievements of our best students.


Later, Phyllis Seltzer presents The Italian Works. The celebrated artist is primarily known for her iconic paintings of Cleveland. However, as a long-time resident of Venice, Italy, her lesser known and never-before seen in Cleveland “Italian works” will be the focus of this exhibition.


At the same time in the Center Gallery, emerging Cleveland artist Travis Kinchy presents From the Shadows Into Light, a collection of highly expressive, somber, and melancholy sculptures in clay and bronze, dealing with universal and mythological themes of the human condition.


Simultaneously, in the South Gallery, we feature HeartWorks – an exhibition of works in a variety of media created by artists with developmental challenges, curated by Tim Knapp, in collaboration with the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities


Student Show and Merit Exhibition: March 26 to May 1

Phyllis Seltzer, Travis Kinchy, and HeartWorks: May 14 to June 20
