The Cleveland Art Community lost a very important member last week. Erica Weiss was a dear friend, artist and gallery owner who will always be remembered by her kindness and generosity towards all who knew her. Her gallery, Juma, is a testament to her impeccable taste in artwork and style. She will be greatly missed.
