After a long, cold winter, Cleveland’s art scene is beginning to thaw out. With more area spaces opening up their doors due to the warm weather, it’s the perfect time to explore some of Cleveland’s art offerings. From experimental photographs to woodcutting and art created here in Cleveland, here are three area exhibitions to catch before the end of June.
With the Cleveland Photo Fest canceled this year, Bonfoey Gallery co-directors Diane Schaffstein and Marcia Hall are doing their part to show Cleveland what life looks like through the lens of six regional photographers with unique perspectives and techniques. The exhibit, which runs through June 30, features photography projects ranging from hand-sewn collages to gold leaf-infused photographs and printed images developed with the 19th-century wet collodion process, which requires photos to be developed immediately after capturing. 1710 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, 216-621-0178, bonfoey.com
Gustave Baumann: Colorful Cuts
This exhibit displayed at the Cleveland Museum of Art pulls together 60 years of a distinguished artist’s life and career with a colorful collection of more than 79 pieces gifted to the museum from Gustave Baumann’s daughter Ann. The display, which runs through June 27, features Baumann’s original woodcuts along with drawings that inspired his work. 11150 East Blvd., Cleveland, 216-421-7350, clevelandart.org
Threshold: Drawn to Paint
When you walk into Worthington Yards apartments, it’s tough to miss the rotating exhibitions of local artists on display, a collaboration between director of Yards Projects Liz Maugans and Dalad Group president Neil Viny. This exhibit, running through June 26, blurs the line between drawing and painting. 725 Johnson Court, Cleveland, 216-570-0324, yardsproject.com
