A Busy Summer at Harris-Stanton Gallery
We are excited to report that our galleries had quite a busy spring! In March we ventured to New York City for the very first time as dealers at the Affordable Art Fair in Chelsea. We are pleased to report that our gamble was a success! We were thrilled to be able to give the added exposure beyond Northeast Ohio to our local artists, a goal we have made a priority of late. In our efforts we have also completed a comprehensive overhaul of our website and placed a full-page advertisement in Art News.
Not to neglect our home region, we have planned many exciting events this summer at both gallery locations! In Cleveland we are honoring one of our international artists, Alexander Befelein, with a solo exhibition World Tour with Alexander Befelein, opening July 8 and running through August 6. We have carried his highly detailed etchings of city scenes from all over the world for many years. For this show we will also be exhibiting for the first time his exquisite original watercolors paintings. Most excitedly, to celebrate all that is going on about town for the Republican National Convention we commissioned from the artist an etching of Cleveland! Pictured here is a hot-off-the-press black and white version. The print, an edition of just 100, will be colored in its finished version. Check our website or call the gallery (216.471.8882) to place your order.
Opening June 3 at our Akron location is the 29th installment of our signature International Exhibition. In preparation for the Affordable Art Fair and this exhibition we procured numerous new works from our dealers all over the world. This year’s show will have works from our European artists including never before seen etchings from Kurt Mair, Lynn Shaler, Joaquin Capa, and our Japanese artist Yuji Hiratsuka.
Please save the date for our exhibition opening August 26 featuring new works by local artists Mindy Tousley and Lisa Kenion. This exciting show will display a mix of both women’s two dimensional drawings, monoprints, and paintings as well as three dimensional sculptural works.
