When: Sun., Sept. 24 2017

Beyond Function: The ARTneo Annual Benefit Brunch and Silent Auction takes place just outside the organization's gallery on the ramp level of 78th Street Studios from 1 to 4 p.m. today. This year's benefit honors local artist Judith Salomon, whose work currently is on display in ARTneo's gallery. Beyond Function: The Ceramics of Judith Salomon features the artist's work from the 1970s, '80s and '90s, from both museum and private collections. Salomon won the Cleveland Arts Prize for Visual Arts in 1990, as well as a National Endowment for the Arts grant, Cleveland Institute of Art's Victor Schreckengost Teaching Award and two Ohio Arts Council artist fellowships. A native of Rhode Island, Salomon earned her bachelor's of fine arts degree from the School of the American Craftsman at Rochester Institute of Technology in 1975 and her master's of fine arts from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 1977. Shortly after receiving her MFA, Salomon became an associate professor at the Cleveland Institute of Art, where she taught for more than 35 years. Salomon has exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, and her work resides in the permanent collections of the Cleveland Museum of Art, Los Angeles Museum of Art, Manchester City Art Galleries in England, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the National Museum of History in Taiwan. Tickets are $75 ($50 for students) and are available online. (Usmani)
