I hinted around about an upcoming gallery show the other day, but wanted to make an official announcement about it.
I'm very excited to be working with @glo_cleveland to present "Line of Sight". A 3-Person show on December 16th featuring myself, @dk1994 and @thesignguy1972.
As artists, all three of us have very diverse styles that may not be normally paired up. With that being said, the name "Line of Sight" came to be. By definition, it is a line from an observer's eye to a distant point. The line is the show and the distant point being the unique style of work that the patrons will encounter.
Hope to see you there!
More info coming soon on here and at www.glocleveland.com
Just a heads up, we’re taking a break from our monthly #DrinkAndDraw because our very own @masta_8 @kcretcherillustration and @justinmichaelwill are tabling at this year’s @genghisconcleveland! This is one of our favorite art events in Cleveland!
Plus you can still drink and draw and celebrate with the artists (and some awesome drawing supplies provided by your friendly neighborhood Blick) the night before the event. Check out their Insta for more deets and don’t miss out this Sunday!
Images are highlights from the Opening Reception of Sculptural Voyage/2017/Andrew T. Chakalis, which took place earlier this month on Nov. 10, 2017 in the Euclid Avenue Gallery of The Sculpture Center. “The Florentine [people] wanted to look beyond their walls. This is my interpretation of walking along that wall,” Chakalis said, as he addressed the crowd during his Artist Talk, recalling a time when he was inspired walking along Via Romana south of the Arno River in Florence, Italy, where an intellectual and architectural Renaissance occurred. Chakalis, who is a Cleveland-based sculptor, created 13 new works specifically for this exhibition in the Euclid Avenue Gallery, all of which are made partially from Carrara marble that is quarried in Tuscany. The 13 geometric pieces in this body are also nostalgic of our city of Cleveland, as some of the metal parts mirror exact geographic mapping locations in Cleveland’s street grids. “A lot of my sculptures evolve from direct experiences,” he said. “I was inspired by the streetscape.” See Sculptural Voyage/2017/Andrew T. Chakalis, On View Now through Friday, Dec. 22, 2017, in the Euclid Avenue Gallery of The Sculpture Center. Free and Open to All. Link in Bio to learn more. •

Images are highlights from the Opening Reception of Screaming Voicelessly to a Distant Silence, new work by Paul O'Keeffe, which took place on Nov. 10 in the Main Gallery of The Sculpture Center. "At first I was a little blind sighted by it all, but the one thing that [Christian] left specifically was his writing," O'Keeffe said during his Artist Talk, which focused on his son's suicide, the subject of this exhibition. "[Christian's] writing is scattered around the pieces down here. I don't necessarily agree with some of the conclusions that he came to, but this is my meditation." The long blue line, O'Keeffe said, suggests the railroad track and Cuyahoga River, which his son followed before he laid across the tracks and waited for a train to come. Prior to his death, Christian had suffered a severe injury, and his condition was believed to be but not conclusively diagnosed as Bell's Palsy. Twenty containers along the blue line represent Christian's age when he died. The containers could be perceived as tea lights floating down a river, but O’Keeffe noted that they could also be symbolic of the brevity of Christian's life. "While I do think the main poem is a little grim, it's exceedingly beautiful, and it does give me a little bit of solace when I read his poetry." Screaming Voicelessly to a Distant Silence is On View Now through Dec. 22, 2017 in the Main Gallery of The Sculpture Center. Learn More about this exhibition through the Link in Bio. •
