Fri 5/5 @ 5-10PM
Where to stop first? That will be a difficult choice for art lovers, as it often is on Fridays. You’ll want to head up to the Waterloo Arts district of course, where Deborah Pinter’s new show opens at the Maria Neil Art Project. Her Natural Selection: A Dresden Creation features prints that resulted from her stay in Germany as part of Zygote’s artist exchange program. On the other end of the strip Praxis Fiber Workshop debuts a show of work called Kombucha by its fellowship student and recent CIA grad Abby Clark.
Current CIA juniors collaborated to put together their own show, addressing society’s unspoken rules, at Gordon Square’s 1point618 Gallery. But as you’re traveling across town to check that out, stop in at the Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory to check out Indelicate Truths, with work created by Alexandra Janezic, Anna Tararova and Ann Waddell as part of Morgan’s artist-in-residence program.
Over at the Artists Archive of the Western Reserve, there’s closing reception from 6:30-8:30pm for its annual members show, which includes some of the area’s most significant artists.
And finally, if you’d like to drop by something decidedly unstuffy, there a pop-up show from 6-9pm at the future Glenville Arts Campus (now the Medical Associates Building and Winnie’s Nursery) where there will be food, music, dancing, exhibits and, to kick off the evening, a talk by Cuban architects Ernesto Jiménez and Sofía Márquez Aguiar, part of the Cleveland Foundation Creative Fusion’s Cuban artist exchange.
All these events are free and open to the public. Art offers the best cheap entertainment in Cleveland!
