Handmade. Local. Old school. The art and ephemera at Zygote Press’s annual Off The Wall Holiday Show has all that appeal and more.
Off The Wall is where Northeast Ohio printmakers and other artists annually sell holiday gifts to hang on your wall, as well as a multitude of items that seem to spill spontaneously from the minds and hands of printmakers—from greeting cards to handmade books, to scratch pads, and other items.
This year’s sale features works by some of the areas best artists, which include, Denise Stewart, Pam McKee, Amy Casey, Bruce Edwards, Kristina Paabus, Elizabeth Emery, Liz Maugans, Anna Tararova, Jen Craun and Lisa Schonberg and many more.
Patti & Ray will be working in Zygote’s studio this summer. Stay tuned for more details. Meanwhile save the date for their closing reception and artist talk.
Closing Reception September 26th 2-4pm ** Artist talk 3pm **
The full run of the exhibition is September 4th through October 3rd, 2015.
Patti Fields and Ray Juaire work and live in the Cleveland area. They both attended The Cleveland Institute of Art where they met and began their collaboration over 20 years ago. Fields, a trained Metalsmith, often focuses on the smallest of details within her jewelry and sculptural work, while Juaire comes from a background in Painting, Sculpture, and Photography. Together, they create objects that utilize both their vision, interests, and skills.
They often transform a variety of media to create artwork that, at times, symbolizes their professional and personal relationship and explores issues of place and memory. Their work can be singular or done in small series that play with balance, utilizing dynamic forms, conceptual narratives, and a re-imagined history of the objects they incorporate in each of their pieces. They create new histories in the combinations of fabricated and found objects and work to create metaphors for the nucleus of human, scientific, and metaphysical relationships.

I was the kid who never left my scabs alone; I picked at them. I’m not sure if I was attracted to self-inflicted pain, but what I do know is that I was attracted to the breaking of patterns on my skin and the mark that would be left behind. I liked the permanency and mystery of scars. Then there are, what I call, the unmarked scars. (more…)
