1.13 and 14th

1. 13
“Temporary: Photography, Installation & Design Inspired by Post Industrial America.” Openign Reception 5pm. The rust belt region is full of reminders of a more prosperous past. A significant loss of manufacturing jobs coupled with massive population decline, eroding infrastructure and political corruption have left the region ravaged and depressed. Cities like Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Youngstown, Akron, Gary, Detroit, and Flint have all experienced the ‘shrinking city’ phenomenon with mixed results.” Our cities are crumbling, shrinking, changing… Hence, EVERYTHING IS TEMPORARY. Dave Desdimone and Ron Copeland spent four years exploring abandoned factories, steel mills and the like and have much to show for it. Don’t miss Temporary: Photography, Installation and Design Inspired by Post Industrial America @ Studio 2091 Mothersbaugh Roos 2091 Front Street, Cuyahoga Falls

“Second Life.” Opening Reception 6-9pm. Work by Mary Lou Alexander, Ruta Butkus Marino, Helen Murrell and June O’Neil. Heights Art Gallery, 2163 Lee Road #104 Cleveland Hts., 216.371.3457

1. 14
“Bob Peck
LET THE CHIPS FALL.” Opening Reception: 7-10 PM. Bob Peck has fallen victim himself at times, spewing statements about graffiti art and transcendence alike. In the end, though, he is an abstract artist, regardless of the roots that may add that sense of Vice-Magazine-counter-culture-bad-boy-ism to his work. He is simply a man who loves to paint the designs trapped in his imagination. William Rupnik Gallery 1117 Euclid Ave. Cleveland, Ohio 44115
