Dana L. Depew "Studies in Nepotism" - recent sculptural work

Due to the fact that I need to reassemble and rephotograph recently produced sculptural work and instead of disassembling them after they are shot and putting the works back into my borderline hoarders basement studio, I am going to leave work up for an impromptu makeshift sculpture exhibition that will open Sept 10. No real theme or concept except that it is large scale sculpture made from found objects that I have collected and reassembled throughout the past few years. Most of these works were produced for various exhibitions and were not intended to be exhibited together.
Opening Reception - Sept 10, 6 - 10pm

“BEYOND THE APEX” – an exhibition of the awesome curated by Pink Eye ex-Magazine

“BEYOND THE APEX” – an exhibition of the awesome curated by Pink Eye ex-Magazine at Asterisk Gallery opens Friday August 13th containing new works by the following artists:

IAN P.E. -

In celebration of two years existing, from free art magazines to the publishing of limited edition books, the Pink Eyes (Leigh Ring and Ian P.E.) have collected some of their favorite local visual artists to take part in a progressive display of cutting edge art. The walls will not be holding the art on this night, but part of it. Landscapes of the mind installed into public view…reverberations from the hinterland, where a mixed crew of non-genre artists come together for a display of the now - a glimpse into the future of Cleveland art!

Opens Friday August 13th (as part of Tremont’s monthly art-walk)

Asterisk Gallery (2393 Professor Ave, Cleveland)
6pm – 11pm

And please join us for an after-party at the Happy Dog, where an equally impressive showcase of sonic genius will be the place to catch the incredibly talented aural massages of:
Terminal Lovers
Self Destruct Button
Oblique Orchestra 

The Happy Dog (Detroit and W. 58th)
