The retrospective runs from June 15 - July 20th

 

Last Friday I experienced urban wonder. Passionate – color filled – electric energy – urban wonder.  Just shy of Little Italy at the Artist Archives of the Western Reserve  I attended an amazing retrospective exhibition of the Art of Michelangelo Lovelace, Sr.

Michelangelo’s work is vibrant with life, color, love – the public life of many and the intimacy of a few told through bold and varied brush stokes.  It’s loud and passionate and his work brings you to the curb of a bustling city, a life alive with feeling and emotion – of  – Cleveland.  His paintings give me a new sense of Cleveland – of a city ready to explode and take a stand.  Yet – this is what Mr. Lovelace Sr. has been painting for 26 years.  He has opened my eyes and my heart to my own city.  A city full of urban wonder and life.

Saturday, June 23, 2012 there will be an afternoon dialogue with Mr. Lovelace from 1:00pm – 2:30pm at the AAWR.  Don’t miss this engaging exhibit and the chance to listen to an amazing artist.

The gallery is open from 10am-4pm (Wed – Fri); 12:00 – 4:00pm (Sat.)  More information can be found at: www.artistsarchives.org or www.lovelaceart.com
