The Gathering Place West
The Gathering Place is bringing home works from the Art of Giving campaign that were on display at the Progressive Insurance campus this winter. This exhibit features works created during art therapy classes at The Gathering Place. Considering each piece individually and then collectively provides perspective on how cancer touches individuals and how the experiences of others can affect one’s journey. The exhibit includes photographs, collages and paintings. Also featured are sculptures created by those touched by cancer as part of the Transformations exhibit, a collaboration with The Cleveland Clinic, North Coast Cancer Foundation and University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center. Radiation masks worn by individuals during treatment were embellished to embody the emotions and experiences of cancer patients. Pieces will be on display at the art gallery at The Gathering Place west until June, 2014.
Two new exhibits by local photographers Paula Friedman and Amanda Strand are on display. Focusing on nature, the exhibits have a serene, calming presence and highlight some of nature’s beauty. Paula enjoys drawing and painting in addition to photography. To see Paula’s artist statement, click here. Amanda has photographed nature for many years, and in several locations.
