Bonfoey Gallery, 1710 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, 216.621.0178, www.bonfoey.com  “Dana Oldfather-Soft Armor.”  Opening reception 5-8pm. Cleveland artist Dana Oldfather is only 37. And she is a self-taught painter without the cache, credentials and connections of an art school education. But she’s already winning awards, snagging prestigious show slots and being written about in The New York Times for her colorful, motion-filled abstractions created from oil, acrylics, spray paint and ink.  Showing that she managed to pick up some art jargon without going to art school, Oldfather says, “As a way of defying the void and defining the ‘home,’ I create systems of eroded, kneaded, knotted, laced up, scaffolded space in a state of simultaneous deterioration, support, and rebuild.”  If you want to know more, she’ll be doing an artist conversation at the gallery on Thu 10/22 from 5:30-7:30pm, moderated by former gallerist Bill Busta.

Destruction of Form isn’t about new or found photography — it’s about deconstructing one piece of art and creating another. This exhibition & collaboration by Shari Wilkins and American Emotionalist artist  John W. Carlson, brought to you by the Cleveland Print Room, challenges viewers’ perceptions by altering the photographers’ original intent.  “We’ve altered the original photograph’s premise,” said Carlson. “It may be presumptuous of me to know the purpose of the photo, but when the premise of the photo is destroyed it becomes an entirely new piece of art. A lot of this is about perception.”
