Works of Greg Martin at the Cleveland Print Room
Cleveland Print Room’s 2016 exhibition calendar starts with works of Cleveland artist, photographer, and toy designer Greg Martin. Martin, who works primarily in the 19th Century medium of wet plate collodion, has received multiple awards and recognition for his efforts with this antiquated photographic process since graduating from CIA’s Industrial Design program in 1989. While Greg has worked with the Print Room previously, with demonstrations of the collodion process and wet plate portrait sessions, we are excited to present this exhibition, Persistence of Vision, January 15 through February27.
Opening March 11, we are proud to bring a selection of found photography from the archives of prominent New York City collector Peter Cohen in a show entitled In Search of Red and Other Stories. Cohen started buying snapshots and vernacular photos almost twenty-five years ago, and has amassed a substantial collection in that time. Says Cohen, “I always bought what I liked. Only years later when Hannah Lifson started to help me organize them did I realize that I had been collecting certain categories and topics, such as Dangerous Women, The Three Graces, People on Poles and Trees, Upon The Roof, and many others.” Photographs from his collection have been exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, among others.
Please join us for these exhibitions, and keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for our ongoing schedule of photographic classes and workshops!
