"ONTARIO GOLD."  Closing Reception: 6-11.  William Rupnik Gallery 1117 Euclid Ave. Cleveland, Ohio 44115

“Paintings by Hilary Aurand, Mosaics by (NOC's) Mark Yasenchack.” Opening Reception: 3-7pm.  This is the debut of Hilary Aurand's urban landscape paintings at River Gallery. These bold, sometimes surreal , sometimes gritty, landscapes capture our city's industrial beauty and the desolate nature of its forgotten urban wastelands.  Aurand's details are innately familiar; from the industrial cast-offs and machinery to the quality of light that feels like our bright northern Ohio summers or the long shadowed midwestern winters.  She renders these details with intimate brushstrokes and sophisticated composition that reveal a grace to the landscape of our city.  While (NOC”S own) Mark Yasenchack has exhibited his ceramic work at River Gallery before this is his first time exhibiting large format mosaics. This work features found stone, glass and metal fragments and bits that become mosaic tesserae.  These are combined with tiles made with his textured clay technique.  The often gothic imagery in his work hints at ancient necropoli, tribal ritual sites, and obscured religious iconography found in ruined architecture. River Gallery,19046 Old Detroit Road, Rocky River 44116 440 331-8406,

“Gold.”  Opening Reception 1-4pm. Sandusky Cultural Center, 2130 Hayes Avenue at Perkins Sandusky, OH 44870 419.625.1188
