Tower Press Artists Group Annual Exhibition
Tower Press is located within the Superior Art District of Downtown Cleveland. The first floor of Tower Press is live-work art studios dictated to 16 different artists. During the Opening Reception, on May 18th, guests will have the opportunity to meet the artists. Guests will also enjoy a D.J. and live entertainment with random surprises, snacks, and refreshments while viewing the artwork. The gallery exhibition is a relaxed and casual atmosphere that allows people to unwind after a long week of work. Another big bonus during the reception, is being able to make an offer with the artist on the spot for a work they would like to purchase! There is no gallery commission involved, all the proceeds of art sales go to the artists, thanks to Tower Press Development Corporation.
Opening Reception will be held on Friday, May 18 from 5-9 PM at Wooltex Gallery on 1900 Superior Ave inside of Tower Press. Checkout their Facebook Event
All the artists work independently with local, regional and even national art galleries, and representatives. They participate in unique community opportunities as well. For example, Harriet Gould, on behalf of her late husband William, recently submitted a design in a Campus District mural competition. The design won and is the process of being completed on Superior Ave, near E. 23rd Street close to Tower Press. In another example, Downtown Cleveland Alliance held a competition to design wraps for power cabinets on the streets of Downtown, and JenMarie Zeleznak’s design was chosen. Her great animal design can be seen at E. 4th Street and Prospect Ave.
Tower Press is always considering new and creative ways to engage the Campus District community. Fun Days on The Green at St. Peter (E. 17th Street & Superior Ave.) will be celebrating its 3rd summer this year where several Tower Press artists recently created a mural. The artists worked with several children, over several weeks, on the project, and is now on display inside Tower Press.
Currently, the Superior Art District local artists community is working together to hold open studios and exhibitions throughout the summer. Campus District will be able to keep you in the loop on the official dates and times.
All 16 artists participate in the Tower Press annual group exhibition as well as open studios during SPARX City Hop on Saturday, August 18th.
