"City Life" at Cleveland Artists Foundation


Artists, interpretations of Cleveland city scenes and urban life are the focus of the Cleveland Artists Foundation's City Life exhibition, opening November 20, 1999 at the Beck Center for the Arts at 17801 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood. Curators Gloria Plevin and Patricia Brigotti selected paintings, wood cutouts and fabric assemblages that convey a rare, human quality for this colorful and vivacious show.

David Buttram, Shirley Aley Campbell, Virginia Cascarilla, Mary Deutschman, Juliette Hamelecourt, Ellen Jontzen, Michaelangelo Lovelace, Gail Newman, Moses Pearl, Elinore Schurr and Hector Vega are the eleven featured artists who bring their astute observations to their city subjects.
