Fri 4/3 @ 6PM
SPACES in Ohio City was scheduled to open its spring shows with its usual reception Fri 4/3
The shows opened, albeit with a no-usual reception. The new exhibitions will be on view, but they will entirely online. Artist-in-residence Katarina Jerinic’s installation This is when the ice sheet ended, looks at the topography of northeast Ohio and layers of history it reveals. Veronique d’Entremont’s Baptized in the Fires of the Cuyahoga is a multi-disciplinary project that looks at the layers of Cleveland history. In addition, programming fellow Nathan Rouse has put together a program of web and social media screenings from SPACES’ Time-Based Arts collection, Something Incredibly Personal.
In addition, SPACES is temporarily refocusing the second year of The Satellite Fund grant program to support artists impacted by the current pandemic. It will award Emergency Relief Grants of $1,000 each to 60 local artists who have lost income due to the pandemic. Learn more here. It is also offering five grants for $5,000 each through its Urgent Art Fund to support artists creating “urgent art” dealing with social, political and cultural issues.
