With Opening Receptions at:
E11even2 Gallery ‘Step Right Up!’
Hedge Gallery, 1300 W.78th Street, CLE  “Stephen Kasner and Justin Brennan.”  Stephen Kasner’s dark, foreboding work was all over town in the 90s when its goth spirit found confluence with the era’s music. But his last local show was in 2002 at the 1300 Gallery, one of 78th Street’s pioneering galleries. He moved to California and exhibited there extensively, with some of his work appearing in films. He’s back to re-introduce himself to local art lovers with his exhibition of new drawings and paintings, Capture & Release (Expanded Images Within Reach).   Justin Brennan (Image Above) has slowly built a local reputation for his semi-abstract paintings over the last decade, working out of his studio at 78th Street. In his new show of paintings No Expectations, he expands his expressionistic work that embeds the human figure within his dramatic compositions. His HEDGE show will be his largest to date, encompassing works from 2012 through today.


Spaces, 2900 Detroit Ave, CLE 216.621.2314  “The Experiment.”  Opening 6:30-8pm. This is an annual exhibition of our very own interns' artwork, completely planned and installed by some of the most talented students in Northeast Ohio.
