Saying Goodbye

It is with mixed emotions to announce that Wall Eye Gallery will be closing in October of this year. After much deliberation we have decided to end our two year run. The seven partners have either had a life change, new job, new opportunities involving more responsibilities, or the desire to focus on artistic careers. It has been difficult to balance these changes while continuing to organize Wall Eye’s shows.

Although Wall Eye Gallery will no longer be a brick and mortar space, we will have an online presence to share news of other shows in Cleveland, competitions, news about the art world and interviews with artists. But maybe you’ll see us pop-up from time to time.

We have been humbled and flattered by everyone’s love for the space and our shows. Whether you have attended our shows, bought art from us, or have been our cheerleader, we thank you. We thank the wonderful artists we have worked with. We are honored to have been a small part of your artistic life and we wish all of you much success. We also thank the guest curators and organizers who have brought us fun and challenging shows and awesome community events. We were in awe of your hard work.

Please join us for our two remaining shows, Art of Artisans opening August 19 and Playing House opening September 23, and lift up a glass and let’s make a toast to making new friendships and strengthening old ones, to art, to working our butts off, taking chances and trying out a dream.


  1. Will be greatly missed, as a true GOOD part of Cleveland's Art Community. Best wishes and thank you to all involved.

  2. I am proud to say that I have been a part of history, I have pictures to prove it.

  3. Wow, I'm sad to hear this, but I totally get it. Life changes. Yup.

    I"ll never forget Linda, meeting you and Stephanie at "Crafty Goodness". You both so inspired me with your vision, passion and determination. I definitely believe that all of that won't be wasted as you pursue new things built on the old.

    All the best to everyone at Wall Eye!!

  4. Thank you, Heidi! We were equally inspired by you and love your paintings. ~ Linda
