Did you know…. that the Lakewood Civic Auditorium’s ceramic art façade “Early Settler” or Johnny Appleseed as many of us affectionately refer to this Lakewood icon was designed by respected artist Viktor Schreckengost? If you recall, Viktor Schreckengost (born June 26, 1906, in Sebring, Ohio) is the father of industrial design, a long-time teacher at Cleveland Institute of Art and creator of the Jazz Bowl, designed for Eleanor Roosevelt. His Early Settler sculture is the largest freestanding ceramic sculpture in the world.

Gallery Watch - March 6, 2007

At bela dubby’s opening entitled “Pieces” a few Saturdays ago, I caught up with jewelry designer and proprietor of Artifactual Creations, Chris Swieger, to talk about his new jewelry line. If you recall, I had the opportunity to interview Chris last year at his Trash and Treasure Show at bela dubby. Chris sets all of his work in resin using everyday items “straight from the junk drawer” and creates provocative art and jewelry. I asked Chris about his inspiration for the new line of jewelry with its whimsical starfish and seahorses. He tells me that starfish are able to grow back any limb they lose—and he finds this resilience an inspiration and a testament to the human condition.

Thirty artists contributed to the “Lights of Hope Benefit” by creating unique luminaries that were auctioned off to a packed house on Saturday raising almost $4,000 for the Domestic Violence Center for Cleveland’s Stalking Awareness Programs.

I had the pleasure of experiencing some "Pop Art" this Saturday at Local Girl Gallery and the Pop Shop. For those of you not too sure what I'm talking about, let me fill you in. Pop Art is an art movement and style that had its origins in England in the 1950s and made its way to the United States during the 1960s. Pop artists center upon familiar images/icons of the popular culture such as billboards, comic strips, magazine advertisements, and supermarket products to create their art and message. Some Pop Artists that come to mind are the likes of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.

Spring has sprung! Time for parties everyone! Isn't it great when you can start a season with a rhyme? Sadly, there were no gallery openings to recount, but still plenty of reasons to visit our Lakewood galleries this time of year, for instance, bachelorette parties, baby showers, barbeques and birthdays to name a few. These events come into full bloom this time of year, and it takes some ingenuity to come up with that perfect gift or as in our case, gifts.
