Best of Cleveland!

We were voted Best New Gallery!!!! Thank you, Scene!

"Launched in the space formerly occupied by the Miller Weitzel Gallery, Wall Eye has quickly established itself on the scene with a busy schedule of shows featuring terrific contributors, among them painter Ken Nevadomi and woodcut printmaker Claudio Orso-Giacone. Its founders — five artists and two aficionados — have kept the emphasis off themselves, reaching out instead to the people whose work they admire. They've also presented lectures, like one recent talk by a local curator on the works of 16 local artists on the rise. It's how a gallery can be more than just stuff to look at; it can be a conversation starter unto itself."

We're not making this up! Really! Read it here too!

Wall Eye Gallery is in the running for best Art Gallery in Cleveland! You can vote October 12 - December 3, 2010.

We thought about canvassing the neighborhoods, talking to people about the issues, and kissing a few babies, but since we have two more shows in October, we'll stick with the blog, facebook, twitter thing.


This is one ballot that is actually fun!
