Lakeland Community College 7700 Clocktower Drive, Kirtland, OH 44094, 440.525.7029 “Skull and Skeleton Exhibit.” Opening 6-9pm. The 4th Skull and Skeleton in Art … Folk Art to Pop Culture exhibit at the gallery at Lakeland Community College has gotten to be a huge undertaking. Curated by gallery coordinator Mary Urbas, it’s exploded in size from 18 artists to more than 80 from across the country as well as England and Mexico, with more than 300 works in virtually every media you can name.
2731 Prospect, 2731 Prospect Ave., Cleveland 216.298.9071 “Joseph Minek and Amber Stucke.” Opening 6-9pm. The second pair of shows at 2731 Prospect demonstrates the direction new gallery director Lauren Davis said they were interested in going. They’ve got another show of photography, something Busta didn’t do much of, and they’re casting a wider regional net. Clevelander Joseph Minek does abstract works created in the darkroom without a camera, while Cincinnati-based artist Amber Stucke will be showing graphite drawings of lichen, fungi, algae and moss in her show Symbiosis State, which “investigate the complex visual relationships between survival, both parasitic and mutualistic, that take place under symbiosis.”
