Cleveland Print Room (in Artcraft Building), 2550 Superior Ave, Suite 102, Cleveland, 216.401.5981 “Hidden Mother: Reimagined.” Opening 5pm. Modern technology has changed a lot – this is especially true in photography. Early cameras required much longer exposure times. As a consequence, sitters had to remain extremely still for extended periods of time. The trademark “ghost-like” stares from 19th Century subjects are the result of these long exposures. The most difficult subjects in early portrait photography were young children. This weekend, the Cleveland Print Room invites a select group of female photographers to re-examine one of the early photographers’ “secret” techniques – the “Hidden Mother.” Hidden Mother: Reimagined features the work of Laura Ruth Bidwell, Darrelle Anne Centuori, Jane Critchlow, Hadley K Conner, Joan Deveney, Helen Harry, Diana Hlywiak, Jocelynn Hunter, Honey Lazar, Liz Maugans, Heather Murray, Nancy McEntee, Barbara Merritt, Michelle Marie Murphy, Molly Pamela, Cynthia Penter, Deborah Pinter, Penny Rakoff, Toni Starinsk and Shari Wilkins.
Hartshorn Gallery, 2342 Professor ave, Cleveland. “Against The Dying of the Light: Lightscapes.” Opening 6-10. New work by Lila Rose Kole.
River Gallery,19046 Old Detroit Road, Rocky River 44116 440 331-8406, www.rivergalleryarts.com “Jeff Yost and Terry Klausman.” Opening 3-7pm. River Gallery is thrilled to announce the first exhibit of our 2014 season. (Image ABove). Jeff Yost has recently relocated to Columbus, Ohio. Jeff returns to River Gallery with a new collection of landscape paintings. These evocative paintings, capture landscapes in a moment of dusk or twilight, as well as distances that are cloaked in fog and half-light. The rural and natural world is mysteriously rendered and is both foreign, yet intimately familiar. Terry Klausman returns after last year's wonderful exhibit with Nina Huryn. For this exhibit, Terry has tapped into his skills as a welder by trade, and has created a series of steel sculptures. Some sculptures are windswept and graceful, appearing to float; others stand tall, like skyscrapers or gazelles. These sculptures are very different from Terry's found object assemblages, but possess his keen sense of composition and fine approach to craftsmanship.
