Lots of Photo-Friendly events in Cleveland on Friday June 20!

This Friday there will be lots going on – a moveable feast of photo/art events powered by the energy and talent of numerous FoP friends!

SPE is opening its inaugural Cleveland exhibition in expanded space in the Art Craft Building, 2530 Superior Avenue, Suite 403.  From 5-8pm there will be refreshments and works by 11 SPE artists from around the U.S. (and one from the UK) on display.  Parking is available in the back of the building, do not worry about those “Permit only” signs.

SPE’s exhibition, Off the Web, On the Wall, features member work as curated from SPE’s online member gallery. The exhibition represents members from all regional chapters, international membership, as well as caucuses. FoP Board President Virginia Morrison is SPE’s Executive Director.

While in the Art Craft Building, stop down on the first floor to see the show at the Cleveland Print Room “By Any Means Necessary: Observations, Experiences, Perpetuations of Racism.” FoP Board Vice President Chris Mason’s work is featured in the exhibition, along with Donald Black Jr., Gabriel Gonzalez, and Teresa Martinez.  Print Room is only open til 6 on Fridays, so plan accordingly!

After your East side visit, head over to the West side to take in events at 78th Street Studios.  Micro Art Space, co-founded and directed by FoP board member Michelle Murphy, will be showing work by artist-in-residence Robin Mandel, a New England artist who works in sculpture, installation, and video. The solo show is called “All Motion is Relative” and the opening will run on Friday from 5-9pm.

Also at 78th Street Studio’s Hedge Gallery, “Light,” a show of work by F0P member Daniel Mainzer will open from 5-9pm. The show will cover the expanse of Mainzer’s commercial and most recent artistic career, including photo journalistic, landscape and abstract photography from 1961 to present.

Kudos to all the industrious FoP people for this programming!  Enjoy!
