When the FRONT International Triennial was announced nearly two years ago, one of the ideas was the local galleries and other art spaces would mount their own exhibits during the time span of the Triennial, giving out of town visitors more to see.
One of the galleries doing so is WOLFS Fine Paintings & Sculpture of Larchmere Boulevard. The gallery enlisted Case Western Reserve art professor Henry Adams to curate a show called Cleveland: A Cultural Center, devoted to artists of the so-called Cleveland School.
The show will feature around 100 works by northeast Ohio artists across the span of the 20th century, drawn mostly from private collections cross the country. It’s the most comprehensive public showing of such works since the Cleveland Museum of Art’s 1996 show, Transformations in Cleveland Art.
It opens with a reception Wed 7/11 @ 6-8PM; it’s $20 per person which includes a catalog and valet parking. The show runs from Thu 7/12-Fri 8/31. On Thu 7/19 the gallery will host a panel discussion with Adams, Cleveland Institute of Art president Grafton Nunes and senior curator at the Cleveland Musuem of Art William Robinson.
