CIA’s Reinberger Gallery supports the creative work of professional artists by providing quality exhibition opportunities. It also serves CIA students, faculty and the community as an educational resource, and particularly to encourage artistic growth and experimentation through well-presented exhibitions, events and lectures.
Cuyahoga County’s finest young talent will shine in the 2019 Scholastic Art + Writing Exhibition, on view in CIA’s Reinberger Gallery January 22–February 1. The exhibition will feature artwork from local artists in grades 7-12, who participated in the Scholastic Art + Writing Competition, a national awards program.
Last year, over 1,800 students submitted more than 3,100 pieces of artwork and writing samples to be judged, which made for a crowd-pleasing exhibition. Gold Key winners continue to the national competition in New York City.
Group tours of the exhibition can be scheduled by contacting Continuing Education at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of a yearlong focus on contemporary craft, the Cleveland Institute of Art will present ThinkCraft: Fresh Takes, an invitational exhibition of works by CIA alumni whose glass, ceramics, metal, and jewelry speak to 21st-century themes and practices.
The show runs November 1 through December 14, 2018, in CIA’s Reinberger Gallery. The opening reception will be from 6 to 8 pm at the Cleveland Institute of Art, 11610 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, 44106. Admission is free.
The artists featured in Fresh Takes highlights work that resists old-fashioned ideas about craft. The works themselves offer a glimpse into the complexity of what it means to be a contemporary maker.
Exhibiting artists are Pamela Argentieri, Jessica Calderwood, Lisa Clague, Nate Cotterman, Uri Davillier, Chris Genter, Kirk Lang, N2 Clay (Nicci Winrock and Neal Barman), Leana Quade, Kari Russell-Pool, Kevin Snipes, Demi Thomloudis, and Thaddeus Wolfe.
