6-5: "Not Your Mother's Refrigerator" at Wunderkind Gallery

by

Rachel Hunt, a senior at Strongsville High School, has classmates whose senior projects involve more typically career-oriented experiences, but she’s chosen instead to intern with Wunderkind Gallery in North Collinwood. She met gallery owner Jerry Schmidt through a photographer friend who exhibited work there, and he encouraged her to create a show of kid art, which she’s calling Not Your Mother’s Refrigerator. “The idea is that art doesn’t have to be a luxury,” Hunt says. “It’s something everyone can participate in.” She’s put out the call for artists ages 5-16 to submit art which must be framed and offered for sale. The deadline for delivering art is May 29. The show opens with a reception featuring three bands (Safari, Sparrows and Arrows, and Soul Hounds) from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. June 5, and will hang until mid-July. Wunderkind Gallery is at 16006 Waterloo, inside Schmidt’s Waterloo 7 Gallery. For information, call 440.263.2254. — Michael Gill
