FEATURED ART ON DISPLAY
KAISER GALLERY – 2418 Professor Ave.
Handful of Dream-Dust
A local treasure within Cleveland’s art scene, artist Jonah Jacobs explores themes of beauty, complexity and eco-consciousness to create works that are simultaneously thought-provoking and visually stunning. Jacobs’ large-scale pieces combine thousands of individual geometric shapes to create mesmerizing forms that reference fractal patterns, bio colonies and other complex systems. Jacobs merges creativity with science in an innovative way, to create artworks that explore ideas about order, chaos, growth, decay and life cycles—the pervasive yet elusive forces that shape our world. Jacobs also treats every exhibition as an opportunity to teach and inspire others how to create artwork that is more environmentally friendly by utilizing unexpected materials for his large-scale art installations, such as cardboard, egg cartons, yarn, quinoa, oatmeal, dryer sheets, and other textiles to name a few. Plus, curated cocktails that pair with the art.
DOUBTING THOMAS – 856 Jefferson Ave.
Birds Aren’t Real—Dave Witzke (The Sign Guy)
Better known as the Sign Guy, Dave Witzke creates fire-breathing cats, deranged rabbits and other bright, cartoony characters that can be found on buildings, telephone poles and bridges around Tremont. Dave’s distinctive outsider art is in keeping with Tremont’s creative spirit and has become practically synonymous with Tremont.
