I probably should have mentioned this earlier, but I have a couple prints in this double group show, East Meets West, which is split between Loren Naji Gallery on the west side of Cleveland and Gallery One Sixty on the east side of Cleveland. The shows opened last week and will run until March 1st.

(Cleveland, OH) East Meets West is a collaborative effort between Loren Naji’s Studio Gallery in Ohio City and Bryon Miller’s Gallery One Sixty in Collinwood’s Waterloo Arts District. Nine of Cleveland’s own artists will have work at both spaces for this unusual event.
East Meets West is an effort to unite Northeast Ohio and dissolve the artificial barriers between East, West and South in our region. By coming together for important, common goals, we become more influential politically, socially and economically. While the art in this exhibition is not specifically Cleveland-themed, this event is a celebration of our mutual home.
“ Our city is divided by a river into the East and the West sides,” explains Naji. “Due to the advent of hip waders, the bicycle, the automobile, the postal system, computers and smart phones, there is no reason that the art worlds on either side of the city should be divided by a river!”
Participating artists include Justin Brennan, Amy Casey, Julie Morgan Cavanagh, Dan Corrigan, Kat Francis, Jake Kelly, Scott Pickering, Grace Summanen and Douglas Max Utter.
Both galleries’ exhibitions run until Saturday, March 1st. Additional viewing hours at Loren Naji Studio Gallery are Fridays Noon-6pm and by appointment. Additional hours at Gallery One Sixty are Saturdays and Sundays 1-6pm and by appointment.
