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.

CALL FOR ARTISTS
PHOTOGRAPHY NOW – The Art of Seeing

Deadline:  midnight May 12, 2017

Show runs July 14 – August 19, 2017

Click here to apply online.

Photography – “the art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy and especially light on a sensitive surface (as film or an optical sensor),” is a broad field, and, in the upcoming PHOTOGRAPHY NOW – THE ART OF SEEING juried exhibition, Summit Artspace seeks to explore the range of that field. Regional photographic artists who work with film and use traditional darkroom techniques, those whose images are recorded digitally and processed on a computer, and those who push the boundaries of the medium in new directions, are all invited to enter. The only exception is that instant photography cannot be accepted, due to a concurrent exhibition which focuses on that medium.

Works from traditional to experimental and from representational to abstract are equally welcome, as are images presented on paper, transparency, through projection, or in some other format. What will unify this exhibition is that each selected work will represent the intersection of personal creativity and engagement with some form of photographic technology in order to explore the art of seeing at this moment in time, whether the gaze is turned outward or inward.

Eligibility: The exhibition is open to artists residing in or attending school in the following Ohio counties: Summit, Cuyahoga, Medina, Stark and Portage. Unfortunately, if you do not live in or attend school in one of these counties, we are unable to consider your work.

Deadline for Entry: Friday, May 12, 2017, by midnight.

ENTRY FEE: $15

Louis Draper and Leonard Freed: Two photographers – one black, one white – look at life during the civil rights era. Both artists were incredibly talented formalists who put that skill at the service of expression. They also shared a goal: to create dignified depictions of African Americans that portrayed them not as victims or heroes but as individuals.

Sports Photography Techniques

December 1, 2016

Action and sports photography is challenging but very exciting. The key to getting good pictures is to set your camera up properly before the event begins, so that when things kick off you can forget about your settings and focus on the action.

Photography Mad’s camera settings are an excellent place to start. They work well in all situations and will help you get sharp, detailed photos with plenty of atmosphere and interest. Click here to read.

PS. Shoot in RAW, not JPG.
