Cause for Change
Spring is a time of new beginnings and growth. At Bonfoey, we have put much thought into what that means for nature and for ourselves. Our spring exhibition, Cause for Change, examines our perspectives on both. We have seen a need to become more vocal and active about the preservation of our planet, so this exhibition will feature regional artists who are sustainability-minded in their works and lives.
On Earth Day, April 22, we will be hosting a ticketed benefit for Cuyahoga River Restoration from 5:30 to 8:00pm. Each ticket will help the organization in its goal of restoring and protecting the environmental quality of the Cuyahoga River and surrounding tributary watersheds. Join us to celebrate the work of Cuyahoga River Restoration and view our inspiring show as we work towards the collective goal of a healthier, sustainable planet!
The public opening reception for Cause for Change is April 24 from 5:00 to 7:30pm. Stop in and view the passionate and thoughtful works of Ron Barron, Sherry Bradshaw, Christopher Burk, Susan Danko, Lauralee Hutson, Deb Lawrence, Erik Neff, Ardine Nelson, Jenniffer Omaitz, Diane Pinchot, Carmen Romine, Lisa Schonberg, Susan Squires, and Barbara Stanczak. Learn about how they are making sustainable choices in their artistic practices and lifestyles.
On May 2, we are partnering with Upcycle Parts Shop to host a workshop from 1:00 to 3:30pm. Take a closer look at the show, get a behind-the-scenes tour of Bonfoey’s historic frame shop, and make a unique recycled treasure to display in your home. There will be a limited number of spots available for this event, so be sure to get your ticket early!
In order to reduce our waste, we are using our leftover framing materials and old frames to make new ready-made frames. These frames and excess materials will be for sale during our Frame Reclaim weekend—May 28 to 30. A portion of these proceeds will also go to benefit the efforts of Cuyahoga River Restoration.
We look forward to creating a greener tomorrow with you!
