This is the first Cleveland School May Show exhibit at the Inner Circle, which will be a regular feature of the Star Complex.... planned to include gallery space, a media arts center and studio and incubator space for professionals in the arts and creative class, like Dana. In fact, Dana was at the Star Complex today to look at space in the hope we can expand his studio there... more on this to follow, as it develops.

Congratulations Dana!

I've met Dana only briefly in the past and regret not being able to attend today's meet and greet due to prior obligations.  I thought the Free Times writeup was insightful and touching and I look forward to the formal exhibit opening with much anticipation.

Congrats to a great NEOn artist!

boo ya.

Cleveland School May Show Dana Paterson, at the Inner Circle.
I know a May Show is a MAY show but hope that its not "The CLE may show Dana Paterson" like as in Dana may show on friday, or the show may happen.

I want to line up a girly girl for this show but what happens if it does not go off?  Is it BYOB?

Cleveland School Artist Dana Paterson...

When I was thinking about identities to organize the arts around, in NEO, the winners were Cleveland School and May Show, and both were not registered as tradenames - so I registered them. They have powerful associations for me and I think it will be interesting for the community to define their long term identities.

So, Cleveland School Artist Dana Paterson is having a May Show exhibiton at the Inner Circle this Friday, February 15... and yes, he is.

OI! What a show - A review

So I drove in from Portage County, picked up friends in Lakewood that I had hyped the gig to, and off we went.   Plan was to arrive casually late and play it cool. 

Unfortunatly, the place was locked up tighter than a drum.  We circled the block, and apparently attracted the attention of the coppers sitting in the CCF parking lot on Euclid.   Not sure what they were thinking we were doing but there was nothing going on at the Star Complex that we could tell.  All the gates were locked up and lights appeared to be off.

Perhaps next time one could post a change if this thing did not go off... especially for the out of towners who came in.   On the flip side, no I get to make that night up to a wonderful girl.
