Meet The Author: The HeART Of Cleveland By Scott Kraynak
While working as a park ranger at the Grand Canyon National Park, Scott Kraynak was thinking about Cleveland; the tough, resilient town was the center of an underappreciated community of artists and both needed to be celebrated. Nearly 2000 miles away, "The HeART of Cleveland" was born.
Kraynak is taking a break from his day job to visit Lakewood Public Library on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 7 p.m. to discuss "The HeART of Cleveland" and the city’s dynamic art scene. Joining book editor Scott Kraynak will be featured artists John W. Carlson, Gary Dumm, Laura Dumm, Ron Hill, Leslie Edwards Humez, George Kocar, Ray McNiece, James Quarles, William Scheele and Pam Spremulli.
The work and personal city-reflections of our special guests are showcased in The HeART of Cleveland along with 70 artists, both past and present.
The book contains over 100 works of art, including a variety of paintings, watercolors, illustrations, sculptures, etchings, mixed-media, graphic illustrations, photographs, dyes on silk and charcoals as well as essays by artists Douglas Max Utter and William G. Scheele, poet/performer RA Washington and the late punk legend Mike Hudson.
Join this talented group July 11, 2019 for a lively discussion on "The HeART of Cleveland." When it comes to the creative community of artists inspired by our city, there is a lot to talk about.
The program will be held in the Main Lower Level Auditorium. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
