Art Exhibits

Third Friday

When: Fri., Aug. 18 2017

Today's Third Friday event at 78th Street Studios, which begins at 5 p.m., includes a solo exhibition of new work by Cleveland-based artist Guy-Vincent, recipient of a 2017 Individual Artist Award from the Ohio Arts Council. A one-night-only event, Vincent's Identity + Symbols is presented by Jak Prints at Derek Hess Gallery. Identity + Symbols features smaller, more intimate works than the monumental works of his Neo Post Factum series that showed last year at Cuyahoga Community College. Vincent's artwork incorporates his signature Symbol Art, which he produced by manipulating Twitter's underlying code. Vincent's latest work continues to experiment with Symbol Art, 140 characters (or less) at a time. The abstract messages explore the boundaries of meaning, symbolism and visual communication. Of course, there's always more to see and do throughout Cleveland's "Art Maze." As the evening winds down, Survival Kit hosts free live music from the Lost Ways and Brave Girls beginning at 9 p.m. on the building's third floor. Admission is free. (Usmani)
