Heights Art Gallery, 2175 Lee Road  Cleveland Hts., 216.371.3457 “Syncope.” Opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m.  In medicine, the noun syncope (SINGkuhpee) refers to a fleeting loss of consciousness; in phonetics, it's when sounds or letters are not pronounced aloud. Heights Arts' new exhibition, titled Syncope, pairs photographs by Rachel Beamer with drawings by Achala Wali that suggest the moments between loss and what remains.  Rachel Beamer's color imagery explores themes of space, surface and memory through compositions that hint at elements not present. Achala Wali's abstract drawings in pencil, pen-and-ink, brush, and sometimes pastel and acrylics, bring forth buried thoughts and memories of landscapes from her Indian childhood. Be sure to mark your calendar for this lush exhibition of two Cleveland artists!
