1point618 Gallery 6421 Detroit Ave., Cleveland, 216.281.1618  “Sid Rheuban at 90-Paintings by Sid Rheuban.”  Opening 6-8.
Bay Arts, 28795 Lake Road, Bay Village, OH  “Annual Juried Exhibition and Julie Cikra:  Migration.”  Opening 7-9pm. Two things going on at BAYarts Fri 10/10. First, view the opening of Julie Cikra’s Migration, a exhibition that examines “the gritty feel of a weathered city full of vitality and a resurgance of life.” It’s an examination of great cities and how they endure. Think if it as taking the pulse of today’s Cleveland — full of Rust Belt chic and on the up-and-up. Just look at her mixed media/painting Untitled [above] and it just feels Cleveland in all its industrial glory.  Secondly, BAYarts hosts their 52nd annual juried arts show. View artworks of all mediums and see who walks away with cash money rewards.  (Image Above.)
Morgan Conservatory, 1754 E. 47th Street, Cleveland, 216.361.9255,  “7th Annual Benefit & Silent Auction.”  Opening 6-10pm.

Workshop Topics:
Along with basic programming, we will talk about features your kiln has that you may not even have known existed. Features that allow you to fuse glass, slow cool for interesting glaze effects, troubleshoot electrical problems and a lot more. Learn about the importance of pre-heating and
hold times. Learn how to properly load your kiln so every piece comes out perfect. We will also discuss the importance of venting and how to set up your kiln room. Also learn about Skutt's new KilnLink Monitoring System that allows you to check the status of your kiln from anywhere you have internet access.
We will go over a few basic maintenance tips that can add years of life to your kiln. Learn how to properly kiln wash your shelves, tighten the bands, and significantly increase the life of your elements.
You will be surprised how easy it is to make basic repairs on your kiln. Think about the money you can save. We will give hands on instruction on how to change a thermocouple, replace worn out elements and install new brick. We will also talk about how to properly diagnose kiln
problems and how to make changes to correct defects in your glaze.
