In the Guren Gallery of the Cleveland Botanical Gardens, an exhibition of sculpture by Barbara Stanczak... "I take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth," says Cleveland-based sculptor and CIA professor Barbara Stanczak, "and my sculptures are an expression of gratitude, a search for parallel, tangible, formal experiences that can be shared with others."

Hypnotica, paintings by Jen Omaitz at e.gordon gallery.

I could not find out enough about Jen Omaitz online, I found some images of her work but I did'nt think that they represented what you will see in this exhibition. So I did'nt post them. The works on the postcard I received from e.gordon gallery appear to be abstract landscapes or urbans scenes, the colors are dark and rich with streaks of bright color that look like neon or blurry colored lights photographed with time lapse photography. The card says they are oil on canvas. Go to the opening and see for yourself.

I went to the pre -pre-gallery talk at CIA yesterday (actually it was called a "brown bag lunch") so I know a little about what this painting is about. Let me preface, only Dana Schutz can really explain her work, live in-person is best I'm sure, maybe video would work, but the printed word  in the form of gallery labels or anything else would never do Dana or her paintings justice. So I encourage you to go to her pre-gallery talk at 6 pm at MOCA.

I attended the artists talk with Catherine Opie at CIA Wednesday night and I can't wait to see her show. A serious photographer since the age of 9, Opie works in the traditional (non-digital) format. Her approach to subject matter is very architectural and indeed she said if she had not become a photographer she would have become an architect. Some of her best known and most challenging work are portraits of members of the gay and lesbian community. Community is a recurring theme in Opie's work -- its what drew her to photograph surfers (as in this portrait), ice houses, and certain cultural/ethnic groups.
