ARTS Watch By Ruth A. Koenigsmark

The Lakewood Arts scene is buzzing, featuring hundreds of fine artists, performing arts venues, emerging arts neighborhoods, numerous art galleries, and a myriad of art events. Another month brings some of City’s most exciting Arts and Culture Events to the forefront. Here is just a sampling of what’s in store in the upcoming weeks:

The end February brings an art show opening for David Horneck. Mark your calendars for Friday, February 22 for Horneck’s “Reflections” show from 6pm-9pm at Local Girl Gallery. Horneck says of this body work and his show, “I get easily distracted by bright shiny objects and these window reflections are no exception! Look carefully at each one of these little puzzles, because there are many things hidden in them. See if you can decipher which images are real and which are reflections. No image layering has been done to any of these images- they are exactly as I saw them.”

Some big news is that the Pop Shop Gallery is holding its first community outreach show called "P.S (Pop Shop) I Love You" on Saturday, February 23rd from 6-9pm. This show involves 19 of some of the best Cleveland area artists, all of which collaborated to create one image . “The sale of reproductions and the original collaboration will benefit arts in the community, such as murals and sculptures, for all to enjoy,” states Rich Cihlar, owner of the Pop Shop.


Phoenix Café will be featuring two artist's work in March, Peter Glynias II and Howard Crow. Glynias will be showing black and white Cleveland scenes. Crowe’s installation has 27 individually framed photographs, 'crisis of faith,' and when all the photos are hung together, the image emerges. Some terrific shows—and see you out there!
