“Gothic” Art Show Opens At WorkSpace Gallery

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Cleveland WorkSpace is hosting its monthly art gallery Open Studio Night Friday from 5:30-8 p.m. The WorkSpace gallery is in the Old Woolen Mill at 445 Church St. SE, in Cleveland. There is no cost of admission for this evening of fine art, but donations to help the program continue are always graciously accepted. 

Open Studio Nights are held on the second Friday of each month. Paintings, sculptures, drawings and photographs have been featured in past shows, as well as performance art and quilts. “Gothic” is the theme for October’s Open Studio Night, which will feature work from over a dozen local artists. In addition, there will be two “dueling” artists creating art live in front of guests in a competition to raise the most donations. 

Open Studio Night coordinator Carie Varner will be "dueling" fellow artist Jackie Cory during the Open Studio Night. Ms. Varner and Ms. Cory, both member artists at the WorkSpace, will each be creating art live from the same still life set up on a table between them. People who attend the event will be able to vote for the artist whose work they like best by making a donation in the corresponding artists’ money box. The table will be filled with items that match the "Gothic" theme. 

“This is the second art duel we’ve held during an Open Studio Night,” said Ms. Varner. “It’s an incredible amount of fun, and there’s a lot of excitement as the artists work quickly to finish their piece during the short time the gallery is open.” 

Featured artists include Ms. Varner and Ms. Cory, as well as WorkSpace member Cecile Broz. Glass art from Kim Currin of Glassworks, also located at the Old Woolen Mill, will be displayed. In addition, there will be artwork from Christopher Falacho, Chris Goins, Elizabeth Evans, Erica Stewart, Michael McDaniel, Cezar Mort, Bill Kuhels, M.B. Hetzel and Riqi Martinez. 

Cleveland WorkSpace is a program area of Public Markets, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. For more information about Cleveland WorkSpace, please visit www.ClevelandWorkSpace.com or Facebook.com/ClevelandArtsCenter.

He turned in his paper and, as it was returned with an A-plus, it is only fitting that something this clever should begin this week’s edition of The  Saturday  Funnies.
