Orange Art Center + Cleveland Photo Fest
Opening September 13, the Orange Art Center (OAC) and the Cleveland Photo Fest (CPF) will partner in Masters of Portrait Photography, a stunning exhibition of Cleveland-based photographers. The Cleveland Photo Fest was launched in 2019 by directors Herb Ascherman, Laura D’Alessandro and Jim Szudy. The CPF is partnering with galleries throughout Northeast Ohio that host photography exhibitions, lectures and workshops. The OAC show will exhibit local photographers, curated for their excellence in portrait photography. This is a perfect collaboration with the OAC as our members and students share a common understanding in the creation of masterful portraiture.
The OAC has expanded its facilities to include a new photography studio. OAC students and members will be able to professionally photograph their artwork for utilization in their portfolios, websites, social media and promotional materials. As with the CPF, the OAC promotes the awareness of professional photography standards. Our commitment to photography as a fine art is the OAC’s first step toward incorporating technology into its classrooms and gallery.
The Masters’ Portrait Photography Show will open with a reception on Thursday, September 23 from 6:00 to 8:00pm at the Orange Art Center Gallery. The show will run through November 15. To learn more about the OAC, CPF and the exhibition please visit orangeartcenter.org and clevelandphotofest.org.
While enjoying the exhibition, we invite our attending patrons to tour our recently renovated OAC facility.
