Off the Wall is opening this weekend!

Handmade. Local. Old school. The art and ephemera at Zygote Press’s annual Off The Wall Holiday Show has all that appeal and more. Join us this weekend for the opening days of this eclectic and festive artistic showcase.

OPENING Weekend:
12/02 (Sat): Noon — 6pm, Reception 1-3
12/03 (Sunday): Noon — 4pm, Reception 1-3

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.

You can even give Zygote Press E-Gift Cards!
