APRIL 4-MAY 3

The show “The Sky Is Falling” featuring photographers Chad Cochran and Jeff Swensen, presents images of people and places that force us to examine how we interpret the world around us.  Are we afraid as we look at these images? Are we intrigued by the unknown? How we experience the world has very much to do with these personal interpretations.  When we assume there is eminent danger it informs everything we do.  The sky may or may not be falling.  We can courageously experience the world or hide from it based on our fear that the worst may happen. 
Opening Reception Friday, April 4th from 7-9 pm
in the Dianne Boldman Education Gallery

Chad Cochran was born and raised in the small town of Fredericktown.  His fascination with decaying barns, homes, and vintage signs provides him with the connection to the small town he grew up in. Chad currently resides in Cleveland (Bay Village), Ohio.  Chad’s photographs have appeared in Midwest Living magazine and his photograph “Dead and Gone” will appear in the upcoming film “Jenny’s Wedding.”  www.chadcochranphotography.com

Jeff Swensen has appeared in numerous publications including The New York Times and The Washington Post. Jeff Swensen lives and works as a photographer in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  He mostly photographs people doing stuff.  Upon this reading, he is older than he has ever been, yet never more-amazed by the varieties of the human condition.  Jeff and his wife, Beth, have 3 children.  He also has over 1900 friends on Facebook, but only really knows about 300 of them.  www.jeffswensen.com

During the 2013/2014 school year, students ages 10 and older have been working in 3 separate focus areas: ceramics, cartooning and drawing & painting with our dynamic BAYarts instructors.  Each child was a part of the selection of work and implementation of this show.  Hope you will join us for a celebration of our "older children" and the body of work they have created this year.

The power of noticing is central to this exhibition of photography by the Ithica.  New York based photographer and printmaker, Craig Mains.  In the common places and daily life situations familiar to us all, Mains finds associations and messages - intended, unintended and misread - that typicall go unnoticed.  He caputures these observations, revealing moments of meaning, humor and beauty.  www.craigmains.com www.prestonbuchtel.com

JULY 11-AUGUST 2

O'Connor paintingsare notable for their consummate finish and tactile nature.  This is of great importance and bears witness to great craftsmanship.  By focusing on techniques and materials, he considers making are a craft which is executed using clear formal rules and which should always refer to social reality.  Through a radically sigular approach that is nevertheless inscribed in the contemporary debate.  O'Connor uses references and ideas that are so integrated into the process of the composition of the work that they may escape those who do not take the time to explore how and why these images haunt you, like a good film, long after you've seen them.

Opening Reception Friday July 11th from 7-9 pm

JULY 11-AUGUST 2

Curated by Erin Schechtman
As children, our first exposure to art comes to us in the picture books read to us by our parents.  Immersed in the lush worlds and characters created by the artists and authors, we come back to revisit these dog-eared pages again and again.  These books are always cherished, but for some, they are just the beginning of a life-long obsession.  In this group exhibit, 20 working illustrators pay homage to the artists and books that inspired them to embark on their unique career paths.  Join us to spend time celebrating a few old friends.

ARTISTS:  Jim Giar, Ben Hale, Erin Schechtman, Tim Switalski, Robin Krantz, Dee Piotrowski, Craig Worrell, Randy Crider, Rebecca Zomchek, Angela Oster, Clare Kolat, Steve Ellis, Gary Dumm, Laura Dumm, Steve Defino, Rachelle Boyd, Ashley Ribblett, Emily Meluch, Mark Laubenthal and more.

AUGUST 8-SEPTEMBER 27

Curated by Ross Lesko of Kenneth Paul Lesko Gallery
In the early morning hours of July 4, 1954, Marilyn Shappard was brutally murdered in her Bay Village home.  Twenty six days later, her husband, Dr. Sam Sheppard was arrested on the porch of his parents house and charged with her murder.  The house where Sam Sheppard was arrested is now part of the BAYarts campus, known as the Fuller House.  It is also home to the Sullivan Gallery which will host this exhibition.  Sam Shepard denied any involvement in his wife's murder, describing his own struggle with a bushy-haired assailant.  The sensationalized trial became international news, with ramifications that still reverberate in the media, pop culture and the U.S. Supreme Court.  Image:  "The Doctors" by Troy Gua

***Were you around when the Sam Shepard case went down?  Were you there when they moved the Fuller house?  Share your memories: FullerHouseStories@bayarts.net

Opening Reception Friday, August 8th from 7-9 pm
