Cleveland Print Room
Laura Ruth Bidwell and Lissa Rivera Joint Exhibition
Opening: Friday, Sep 8, 5-9pm
Gallery Talk: Saturday, Sep 9, 4-5:30pm

Cleveland Print Room is excited to host a joint exhibition featuring the Cleveland debut of internationally-shown, NYC-based artist Lissa Rivera, and new work by Cleveland artist Laura Ruth Bidwell.

“Beautiful Boy,” the ongoing project of Lissa Rivera, focuses, as she writes, “on my domestic partner as muse, documenting our exploration of femininity and the nuances of photography as a transformative medium. I am using photography as a testing ground for my partner, who is genderqueer, to visualize multiple feminine identities. The photographs provide a canvas to investigate the visual language of womanhood that I was raised with, and that my partner is only beginning to explore. Through watching movies, listening to music and viewing countless photographs, I‘ve absorbed an archive of techniques to share. The photographs recall childhood fantasies of dressing up, tapping into deep-seated narratives about desire, beauty, freedom and cultural taboo. Although our emotional relationship is private and real, we perform a romanticism that is obsessive and decadent. The fantasy of dressing up transforms the experience of being photographed into one that fuses identity-creation with image-creation.” Rivera is represented by ClampArt. For further information on Lissa Rivera, see http://www.lissarivera.com/

About her new work for this exhibition, from her Gratiot series, Laura Ruth Bidwell states, “GRATIOT is a name. A place. A state of mind. Gratiot is a photographic project based on the fictional lives of Charles and Victoire Chouteau Gratiot, immortals who have navigated and thrived by night, across three centuries.” For further information on Laura Ruth Bidwell, see  http://www.laurabidwell.com/

Please join us for the opening this September. The exhibition runs from September 8 to November 4.

Jonny Lyons at Cleveland Print Room

May 15, 2017

Jonny Lyons: (Here Come) The Goloshans
Opening Reception: Friday, May 19, 5-8pm
Cleveland Print Room
2550 Superior Ave, Cleveland, OH 44114

Visit the Facebook event page.

Come meet AIRconnect, international artist-in-residence, Jonny Lyons from Glasgow, Scotland and see what he has created during his stay in Cleveland. His work is a direct response from Lyons time in Cleveland, people he has met through street photography, walking the streets and the stories they have shared together. From this sculptural work, he has created and staged short performances within the Cleveland landscape documented with analogue photography.

He has worked at Cleveland Print Room, Zygote Press and Praxis.

Jonny’s practice explores the fragility of friendship and adventure through performances documented by photography and film. He often creates ingenious devices, or functioning sculptures, to execute his ‘hand-crafted mischief’ which are presented – having fulfilled their one purpose – as relics of the event, together with the photographic evidence. But the photographs are not simply documentation of a sequence of anarchic events. They fix the moment between ’cause’ and ‘effect’ and are imbued with wit, melancholy and the physical humour of early silent cinema. In carrying out these processes, collaborations and journeys Lyons attempts to reconcile reckless youth with the pressures of adulthood; these are snap-shots of ‘Lost Boys’ putting their most dangerous, outlandish ideas into practice and – one feels, with some luck – getting away with it.

Special thanks to the Ohio Arts Council for funding this pilot program that not only brings an artist from Scotland to Cleveland but also sends an Ohio artist to Dundee, Scotland for 6-weeks to work at Dundee Contemporary Arts in their amazing print shop. This May, artist Anna Tararova will head to Scotland. This program was also funded through our CPR FOTO BRUNCH fundraiser in Fall 2016. Thanks to all who attended.

Cleveland Print Room Photography Exhibition

Cleveland Print Room (map)
Perpetual Ephemera: The Works of Preston Buchtel, Ryn Clarke, Hadley K Conner, and Raheleh Mohammad
Friday, Sept. 30, from 5 to 9 p.m

The Fall gallery schedule begins with Perpetual Ephemera, a group show featuring the work of four area artists — Preston Buchtel, Ryn Clarke, Hadley K Conner, and Raheleh Mohammad – creating mixed media pieces and assemblages incorporating a variety of photographic processes. It opens with a reception Friday, Sept. 30 from 5 to 9 p.m., with a gallery talk Saturday, Oct. 22 at 1 p.m. It runs through Saturday, Nov. 5.

Raheleh Mohammad is an Iranian born who currently lives and works in Ohio. Photography for her is a visual experience, which allows her to capture the moments that could either convey a narrative or a fading reality in a poetic interpretation. Her focus in this exhibition is ‘distance’ and its perception in the broadest sense.

Ryn Clarke is a visual artist and photographer exploring the image-making process using a variety of photographic processes, including hand-coloring, photopolymer gravure, hand made papers, print making and encaustics.  This new work focuses on an ever-changing natural world – beautiful, even in its decay.

Preston Buchtel primarily works in the mediums of painting, collage, and photography, he often combines them, creating mixed media works.  In this exhibition, he is showing small collage/mixed media pieces drawn from work made over the past twenty years.

Hadley K Conner works exclusively with film, generating images in the darkroom using traditional and alternative photographic processes. The subject matter in this show stems from an ongoing investigation of those who embrace both the past and a sense of theatricality within designated spaces, specific events and their daily lives.

Cleveland Print Room
Garmonbozia: The Works of Diana Hlywiak and Steve Syd
Opening this Friday, January 9, 5 – 9pm
CPR’s first exhibit of 2015 features the work of CPR members, Diana Hlywiak and Steve Syd, working on their own and in collaboration. Having met in 1991, Diana & Steve’s friendship grew through a common fondness for David Lynch, death metal, and photography. The two have worked together on many projects, including the construction of a giant mobile pinhole camera made from a box truck. This show presents a wide range of styles, from Hlywiak’s large-scale surrealistic, and somewhat retro, digital imagining, to Syd’s more abstract, experimentally-processed film-and-paper-based pieces.
