Meet-the-Artist

When: Fri., May 19 2017

Thanks to the generous funding of the Ohio Arts Council and donations from the Cleveland Print Room’s annual Foto Brunch fundraiser last fall, Cleveland and Scotland have partnered to create a new artist residency program. This pilot program brings one artist from Scotland to Cleveland and sends another from Cleveland to Scotland. Meet current AIRconnect artist-in-residence Jonny Lyons of Glasgow, Scotland and see the work he has created during his time in Northeast Ohio during a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. today at the Cleveland Print Room. Lyons’ work includes photographs and videos, as well as ingenious, functioning sculptures used in his photos and videos. Lyons’ work explores the struggle between passionate, reckless youth and the pressures of adult responsibilities. This month, Cleveland-based artist Anna Tararova will spend six weeks working in the print shop at Dundee Contemporary Arts in Dundee, Scotland. Admission is free. (Usmani)
