Spaces gallery sees the light in new exhibit.


A quartet of American and British artists experiments with "the finite quality of time and the infinite quality of light" in the group exhibit Light to Spare, which is on display at Spaces until the beginning of January.For her contribution, New York shutterbug Lea Bertucci will project videos of haunting cityscapes onto a luminous piece of Plexiglas. English sculptor Claudia Borgna has created a large-scale installation of man-made objects that pays tribute to outdoor light. Youngstown's Phillip Andrew Lewis has designed a light show that makes objects appear as if they've materialized out of thin air. And painter Morgan Craig of Philadelphia has installed works that depict asylums, the ruins of factories, and prisons in the throes of decay. "It's a different way of looking at how artists use light and how they're inspired by it," says gallery spokeswoman Nicole Edwards. Light to Spare is on display from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays and Saturdays; 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays; and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays, through Friday, January 4, at Spaces, 2220 Superior Viaduct. Admission is free. Call 216-621-2314 or visit
Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; Fridays, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sundays, 1-5 p.m. Starts: Nov. 21. Continues through Jan. 4, 2007
