The Artwork of James Quarles

When: Fri., May 12 2017

The Artwork of James Quarles, Canopy's first exhibition of its third year, showcases new and recent work by local artist James Quarles. A graduate of Shaker Heights High School, Quarles moved to Columbus to study graphic design at Columbus College of Art and Design. However, by his junior year, Quarles changed his focus to fine art, using the skills he had learned in his design classes to construct his compositions. After graduation, Quarles returned to Cleveland to pursue his art career through freelance graphic design, clothing design and music, while showcasing his work at local galleries, coffee shops and bars. Quarles' exhibition at Canopy explores a wide range of topics, from pop culture to social disorder, and includes portraiture, mixed media and illustration. Opening with a free reception from 6 to 10 tonight, the exhibition remains on view through May 28. Tonight's festivities include refreshments and music. (Usmani)
