First-ever Juried Exhibition at the Print Room


Summertime finds the Cleveland Print Room as busy as ever, with a full slate of exciting exhibitions, compelling workshops, and no doubt a Summer surprise or two.

Friday, June 12 marks the opening of our first-ever open-call, juried exhibition, The Peer Show. Judged by the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Curator of Photography, Barbara Tannenbaum, The Peer Show will present a broad range of photographic styles and techniques. The exhibition, which will award cash prizes in five categories, will also feature works in a variety of photographic media: everything from digital to hand-processed black-and-white, to various alternative processes will be on display through July 11.

Opening July 24, Destruction of Form is a conceptual collaborative exhibition of work by Cleveland Print Room Founder and Director Shari Wilkins and CPR’s next-door neighbor, American Emotionalist painter John W. Carlson. Altering the form of the photographs, the two artists collaborate using vernacular photography as inspiration. Carlson destroys the original photographer’s intent by transforming the concepts of the images in his accompanying paintings and drawings, while Wilkins aggressively modifies the surface of the photos’ original form. The exhibition runs through August 28.

Reignite your passion for film photography at the Cleveland Print Room this Summer. From gallery shows to photography workshops, there is something for everyone at the Print Room.
