The release of the latest issue of CAN Journal is always reason enough to celebrate. Stop by Heights Arts for CAN’s Winter 2015-16 Launch Party to pick up your copy this Friday, Nov. 20 from 6 to 8 p.m., or look for it around Northeast Ohio in the coming days. If you come to the party, in addition to picking up your copy of CAN Journal this Friday, you’ll have a chance to view Heights Arts 14th Annual Holiday Shop.
“We are thrilled to host the upcoming CAN Journal launch at Heights Arts,” says Heights Arts Executive Director Rachel Bernstein. “As an organization that gives voice to the diverse arts activities in the area, they align perfectly with Heights Arts' mission to promote local artists.”
The new Winter 2015-16 issue includes firsthand insight into the upcoming season’s busy schedule of events and exhibitions throughout Northeast Ohio galleries, museums and nonprofits, as well as a number of additional feature articles discussing current events and news by some of the region’s most respected and accomplished arts writers.
These features include an article by Brittany M. Hudak, updating the story we brought you this summer about the attempted theft of Frank Oriti’s painting, Clarity, from London’s National Portrait Gallery. Additional articles include Michael Gill’s essay on efforts to revitalize art walks in Little Italy and Tremont, commentary on the results of Issue 8, Dr. Henry Adams on the future of ARTneo, Joseph Clark’s preview of a Roy Bigler retrospective at Tri-C East and Douglas Max Utter’s cover story on local artist and director of Ursuline College’s Wasmer Gallery Anna Arnold. The cover features Anna Arnold’s portrait of Billie Holiday.
Heights Arts 14th Annual Holiday Store includes art and gifts by more than 80 local artists and artisans. Heights Arts entire gallery is filled with paintings, photographs, fine art prints, ceramics, glass, wood, fiber arts, artist cards and books, apparel, jewelry, music, baby apparel and more. All participating artists volunteer their time to work in the gallery for the show, so some of the participants will be on hand to discuss their work.
The Holiday Store remains open seven days a week through Dec. 30, with expanded evening hours: Mondays from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. The gallery is occasionally closed prior to special events.
