FOUND CONTACTS



Heights Arts Gallery, 2175 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118

Overlooked selections from 20th century American photographic studios
Organized by Lisa Kurzner

The contact sheet—now on the verge of extinction—captures the working life and thought processes of photographers by mapping out the sequence of shots on roll film in the studio or on the street. Choice, timing and bracketing are terms identified with proof sheets that record the unfolding relationships between the photographer and his subject. The unedited visual manuscript, marginalia included, contains the diamonds as well as dross of that unique experience—the shoot.

Contact sheets are vested with an important photographic element—that of time. They slice apart a period of time into individual frames, and by virtue of their sequential nature, render visible patterns and relationships—social, psychological, formal—which lend the object itself a unique position in photographic history. When scanning an entire sheet, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The unintended visual interplay from frame to frame carries a viewer to find unexpected relationships among the details yoked together by this format.

This exhibition of contact sheets is drawn from a local collection. They were purchased exclusively on eBay, and primarily represent anonymous photographers shooting (for the most part) anonymous subjects in portrait studios, on television and film sets, in private homes and suburban backyards.

In between a few recognizable personalities are the good, the bad and the ugly of midcentury culture—from Spanish-tinged melodramas to headshots of hopeful starlets. The best images however are the unplanned ones. The Strange as found in these photographs, much like preparatory sketches for master works, reveal some of the visual throat-clearing and cavalier moments that happen before the camera.

SECOND LIFE


January 13-February 25, 2012
Heights Arts Gallery, 2175 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118

Mary Lou Alexander
Ruta Butkus Marino
Helen Murrell
June O’Neil

Curated by fiber artist Marty Young, Second Life is a fiber show in conjunction with the Textile Arts Alliance’s Focus Fiber on view at the Canton Museum of Art December 2-February 26, 2012
 
Second Life is a show of quilt-referenced fiber art by artists who had previous careers in fields unrelated to art.   The show also reflects quilt-making’s second life that started in the quilt revival of the 1970s when artists evolved the quilt from bedcover to art. 
 
Their work is grounded in traditional American quilt techniques but the quilt per se is almost unrecognizable as the art form of quilts has transitioned from the bed to the wall, from “quilt” to “fiber art.”

TOPHOGRAPHY


March 2-April 14, 2012
Heights Arts Gallery, 2175 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118

Philip Brutz
G.M. Donley
Matthew Fehrmann
Nancy McEntee
Michael Weil

Five Cleveland photographers offer personal experiences of landscape-near, far, and along the way.

Tophography is a group exhibition of recent photography by five area artists whose work offers personal experiences of landscape—near, far, and along the way. Organized by Heights Arts, the show continues the local nonprofit gallery’s commitment to presenting photography to the regional audience. Each of the five artists brings a distinctive approach.

Philip Brutz offers 10 stereoscope images made at a place called Raven Rocks in south central Ohio. Installed in a special freestanding viewer that allows gallery visitors to scroll through the photographs, the series explores with 3-D intensity the quiet details of the site. Brutz works for the Cleveland Museum of Art, custom-making mounts to hold works of art from the tiniest jewelry to massive stone sculptures. His photography has appeared in exhibitions at MOCA Cleveland and at the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the museum has acquired a number of his photographs for its collection.

G. M. Donley, whose first solo show was at Herbert Ascherman Jr.’s Cleveland Photographic Workshop in 1990, is designer and editor of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s magazine, and was a founding member of Heights Arts. His strongly horizontal photographs here combine dozens of overlapping transparent images to create dense collages of 360-degree panoramas or excursions such as mountain hikes and bicycle rides.

Matthew Fehrmann, an adjunct professor at Cleveland Institute of Art where he is responsible for fine art digital photography and printing courses, has spent a dozen years honing his reputation as a maker of fine art prints for major photographers. Last year, he and two friends rode motorcycles from Alaska to Mexico, and here he shows images made during that journey. His work has recently been on view locally at 78th Street Studios.

Nancy McEntee, professor of photography at the Cleveland Institute of Art, is a 2009 recipient of a Creative Workforce Fellowship from the Community Partnership on Arts and Culture, and also received a Virginia Center For the Creative Arts Fellowship Residency and an Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowship. Her photographs are exhibited nationally and can be found in many public and private collections. She was awarded a residency at the Burren College of Art in County Clare, Ireland for summer 2010, and the photographs she presents here portray her daughter, who is the subject of her ongoing body of work,in the striking Irish landscape.

Michael Weil inspired this exhibition with his series of photographs looking down from Seat 9A during a commercial flight from Cleveland to Sacramento via Houston. Juxtaposing images of runway tarmac, exurban developments, arid mountain ranges, and massive-scale agriculture, the series finds poetic visual rhymes through texture and abstraction. A photo-historian by profession, Weil earned a PhD from Case Western Reserve University and is currently an adjunct professor at the Cleveland Institute of Art.

SMALL SHOW


April 20-June 2, 2012
Heights Arts Gallery, 2175 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118

Small Show

Pictures of the art and opening reception are here

A collection of small works by six significant artists:
(photography, painting, fiber, and sculpture)
    Amber Anderson
    Susan Danko
    Emily Felderman
    Rene Harris
    Lynn O’Brien
    Campbell Paxton

Amber Anderson
My work has long focused on the themes of intimacy, memory and timelessness, which I explore in small black and white photographs. My current project, Novel, illustrates scenes from imaginary narratives with atmospheric images of existing historical and natural sites assigned new, fictitious histories. The work asks viewers to reconsider their perceptions of what they believe they know about a place, as well as to reflect on the subjective nature of history. The images eliminate references to the present and evoke an atmosphere of mystery.  The titles, written as excerpts from the Novel, present the viewer with open-ended scenarios that they can interpret based on their own imagination and experience. The project is ongoing as the narrative of the Novel continues to develop.

Amber J. Anderson is an Ohio-based photographer who creates work based on themes of memory, mystery, intimacy, and history.  She is inspired by historical sites, rural landscapes, and classic literature. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photography and Master of Arts degree in arts administration from The University of Akron. She has exhibited her work locally at SPACES, Zygote Press, and Aperture Tremont and nationally in galleries in California, Vermont and Oregon. She currently resides with her family in Cleveland Heights.

Susan Danko
The paintings presented here were created spontaneously over a period of time, and stem from sources including my memory, imagination, written words, photographs, organic specimens, and sketch book notations of nature.  When arranged in proximity they present a complex and multi-faceted view of our beautiful and fragile natural environment today.

Cleveland native Susan Danko received a BFA in painting from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1998.  Her work is included in prominent public and private art collections including the Cleveland Clinic, Springfield Medical Center, and Nordson Corporation.  Her current exhibition ‘Singular Perceptions’ is on view at Harris-Stanton Gallery in Akron through April 7th. Her work will be included in the ‘Midwestern’ exhibition at the Rockford Art Museum in May, and her paintings will be featured in volume 17/18 of Studio Visit Magazine  in late spring of 2012.

Emily Felderman
I love making stitches; they are simple and straightforward. No loud machines, no protective gear, just a hand, needle, thread, fabric and scissors are needed. Stitches historically have been both necessary and decorative. They can help to tell a story, record important occasions, and bring people together.

My framed pieces range in size from an inch to almost two feet in length. Work on a small scale demands of the eye greater attention to detail. I overlap stitches to add dimension. I am inspired by colors and patterns found in nature.

I have recently been exploring combining my textile work with found vintage objects, beginning with my Grandfathers gears and washers. I like the idea of using the old scissors in a new way and wonder what they were used for before I found them? Stitching? Cutting papers? Utilitarian? Bonsai? They are now part of a complete art piece where their patina, scratches, and history are integrated into a unified piece.

Emily Felderman teaches art at Laurel School in Shaker Heights, OH. She received her Bachelor of Science in Art Education from the Cleveland Institute of Art and Case Western Reserve University. Her artwork primarily consists of framed textile pieces and textile work integrated vintage found objects.

Renee Harris
For as long as I can remember, I have needed to create things with my hands. Inspired by my father’s art studio, I proceeded to blend my mental imagination with the physical component of creating tangible ideas by hand. As time went on, I realized that I was beginning a lifelong journey of self-discovery about what it means to be an artist and how it would define me.

My formal education began at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. I experienced many opportunities to explore my abilities, as well as, absorbing  inspiration from the vast amount of art and culture within the city. I left the Corcoran for The Art Academy of Cincinnati because at the time, the Academy offered classes which better suited my goals. I pursued illustration as a focus but soon included painting and printmaking courses. These combined disciplines strengthened my sense of color, process and  communication skills. I graduated with a major in painting and printmaking along with a minor in illustration.

Lynn O'Brien
I use color, form, and texture to create mixed media paintings that are inspired by the beauty and diversity of both natural and decorative forms.  My goal is that each painting becomes a source of contemplation and ongoing discovery for myself and other viewers.  

Combining different materials using an additive and subtractive process, I build up several layers of paint that I scratch into, draw marks on, and collage papers onto.  This results in a complex textured surface and color field with bits and pieces of previous layers being revealed through each subsequent layer.  At some point in the process, I begin adding shapes and objects inspired by birds, insects, and other biological forms.  Each painting becomes a record of its own unique history through the remnants of colors, lines, and marks that remain visible through the final layer of paint.

Lynn O’Brien was born and raised in Northampton, Massachusetts.  She studied art at the University of Arizona in Tucson before moving to Cleveland in 2001.  She works as both an artist and a registered nurse.   Her interest in natural forms and patterns and her entomologist husband provide ongoing sources of biological inspiration.  She has exhibited her work locally, regionally and nationally and has received several awards.   Lynn’s work will be included in a new book entitled 100 Midwest Artists by Ashley Rooney which will be available in May 2012.

Campbell Paxton
I create small sculptures on mythological themes.  I use the human body to explore movement in space; action and reaction; and the problems of “open” and “closed” form.  I do not deny myself subject, but rather revel in it to explore emotion through my choice of myth and the consequent situations offered therein. I enjoy researching the traditional concept and iconography and then delve deeper into more obscure interpretations to see if I can make any logical leaps in mythic reason; to see if I can add any nuance of meaning when I am done playing and my plastic actors have finally settled on a pose.  In this way I hope to make objects that mover, delight, and instruct or, at least, provide incentive to explore the sources I set askew.

My works are basically domestic.  They are created to be in the hands of an individual;  to be touched, turned, and examined with the naked eye (after all, turn about is fair play).  Their scale denies the pompous heroism of more monumental sculpture.  (They are conversational rather than rhetorical; intimate rather than public.)  Indeed, if my creations do not make large statements, they at least make side remarks which might induce thought or contemplation.

MARK SLANKARD + ANDY CURLOWE


March 1-April 13, 2013
Heights Arts Gallery, 2175 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118

 


OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 6-9 PM

Mark Slankard and Andy Curlowe, both recipients of Creative Workforce Fellowships, are the featured artists from March 1 through April 13.  

Slankard’s evocative photographs from the Toplu Series capture the rapidly changing landscapes in Turkish suburbia, developments that Slankard began to document in 2008 after several years of travel to the country.  His work reflects “landscape as a physical manifestation of those who live there, and their values and the power structures that basically shape the place.”

 

Curlowe’s paintings similarly explore themes of civilization and relationships between built environments and the contours of natural landscape.  His paintings “confront the ever-changing relationship between these realms.  Focused on suggestive landscape, my work is a fusion of curved lines and blurred contours of natural forms which counter the sharp geometry of industry and calculation.  Whether in conflict or harmony, these works emphasize the power struggles between both worlds.”

 

OUR KIDS ON LEE


through May 11
Heights Arts Gallery, 2175 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118

Opening reception Friday, April 19, 6-9 pm

an exhibition featuring the Heights Youth Club Mosaic Mural, paintings by Augusto Bordelois, and art work selected from  the art classes of Lee Road public schools: 

 

Fairfax Elementary School, Jessica Friedland, art teacher

Boulevard Elementary School, Hilary Nemecek, art teacher

Heights High, Susan Hood, art teacher

 

The mural, the product of an Ohio Arts Council Artist Residency with Augusto Bordelois, will be installed on the Heights Youth Club, 2065 Lee Road, where it was designed and fabricated in the after school program.

 

The Heights Youth Club Mosaic Mural is a project of Heights Arts that both enriched students’ after school experience AND enlivens the Lee Road streetscape, reflecting Heights Arts’ vision that art is part of every day life.  The mural is a window into the current life of the former church repurposed into a vibrant after-school program.

 

Special thanks to Heights Arts Program Director Andrea Joki, artist Augusto Bordelois, and Roscoe Morgan, Club Director

 

The project was made possible through the generosity of The Ohio Arts Council, Beth Sersig + Christopher Brandt, The Cyrus Eaton Foundation, Jack + Blanche Valancy, The Dominion Foundation, US Bank, and Elisabeth Gevelber.  THANK YOU!

The View from Now:  New Photographs by Linda ButlerJennie Jones,Judith McMillan

Cleveland-area artists Linda Butler, Jennie Jones, and Judith MacMillan have all been exploring the photographic medium for decades, with subjects ranging from intimate botanical studies to Cleveland architectural landmarks to China’s Yangtze River valley as it was flooded in an enormous hydroelectric project. Each artist has earned a place of honor in the arts community with her own distinctive vision and superb craft, and each has numerous works in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art.

The new exhibition "The View from Now: New Photographs by Linda Butler, Jennie Jones, and Judith MacMillan," opening Friday, July 12 at Heights Arts Gallery, 2175 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights, presents a unique opportunity to see brand-new work by three of Cleveland’s most venerable photographic artists. The Heights Arts show is the first to feature these three together in a show built around their current projects, which focus on Cleveland-area subjects ranging from hatchling birds on a windowsill to the grand expanse of Lake Erie. While all three have often previously worked in black-and-white, the photographs show here are all in color. The View from Nowcontinues a commitment by Heights Arts to organize fine exhibitions of photography for the broad yet discerning audience that visits the gallery near the Cedar-Lee Theater.

All-Ohio Ceramics Invitational
Curated by Tom Huck


September 6 through October 18, 2013
Heights Arts Gallery, 2175 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118

Opening Friday, September 6th, we will be presenting a landmark exhibition, "All Ohio Ceramic Invitational," organized by Tom Huck, curator of University Hospital's art collection. The All Ohio Ceramic Invitational showcases ceramic works from artists in northern Ohio and throughout the state that explore the diversity of clay.

Tom states:

 

Artists have been invited who's works exhibit contrasts in scale, clay bodies, firing ranges, glazing techniques, and execution. The show will feature sculptural works, vessel inspired pieces, and functional works.

 

We are particularly excited to introduce a recognized group of artists from the outlying regions of the state and exhibit their work for the first time in the Cleveland area.

 

This exhibit not only highlights some of Ohio's talented ceramists but also provides a perspective on ceramic art and its place in today's contemporary art market.
