Call For Art

The weather is something we all have in common and cannot escape.  It is often the topic of conversations with friends and strangers.  We praise the rain when we need it and curse it when it changes our plans. In reality we are at the mercy of weather.  From beautiful sunsets with peculiar cloud formations to the disastrous destruction it can leave in its wake, the weather affects and inspires us humans on a daily basis.
 
So let’s get real.  This is a love-hate relationship. The technical term for this type of relationship is “ambivalent relationship”. Our relationship with weather is complicated.  Because we are “stuck” in a relationship with weather like we obviously are, there is likely to be ambivalence present. 
 
We get along sometimes (when the weather fits our plans and expectations) but we also harbor a few (or many) underlying negative feelings toward it.  The good news is that research has shown that love-hate relationships, while associated with things like stress and high blood pressure, are also beneficial.  They make us more creative in problem solving and better with decision making.
 
The awe and power of our relationship with the weather has been captured by artists through their lenses, their pencils, paints, etc. This exhibition will explore and showcase our love-hate relationship with weather and inspires artists to be creative in how they represent this  Whether to Weather relationship.

First Place

Jennifer Gleason
Umbrella Dream
Hand-embellished photo art
24 x 30 in. | $775.00

Artist Statement: Come see the Story Unheard as you travel through fantastical imagery of angels, warriors, chrysalis hearts, flying umbrellas, natural disasters & more. With influences such as Alexander McQueen, Edgar Allen Poe, Rene Magritte, Gustav Moreau, & Salvadore Dali, my artwork flirts with the dark light of the macabre where the ugly basks in the juxtaposed glow of the beautiful. Personal journal pages transform into surrealistic imagery bearing a deeply metaphorical message pertaining to the journey of the being through growth and change as well as the examination of the psyche. As an artist, I play the role of the Scribe; documenting self-evaluation throughout my experiences along the journey’s path. Although very personal, the actual tales remain shrouded in symbolism so as the viewer can form their own connection.

I have found that journeys of great significance are rarely easy – they are filled with nightmares & darkness, insecurity & doubt, coldness & loneliness. With growth comes pain but also knowledge, love & understanding. In paying attention to the guidance of the symbols around me, I found beauty, safety, & inspiration in some of the darkest & scariest moments… I draw upon the inspiration the darkness holds for me in these moments so as I may help guide and to shed rays of healing light and hope to those who may find themselves traveling similar paths.

Upon conception, each image is carefully constructed using elements of contemporary surrealism and are comprised of multiple photographs including self-portraits that are composited together with a myriad of digital effects & artfully blended with textures to share my story visually through ambiguous pictorial allegory. My process is restrained and planned to a certain point until the creative and emotional side of me jumps in the driver seat & all predetermined & predicted outcome fades into a swirl of what was, what is & what will be.

Dan Rowland
Storm Front
Photographic print on metal 
20 x 30 in. | $375.00

Artist Statement: To say the weather plays an important part of what I do as a photographer would be an understatement. The weather can make or break a photograph and is often the driving force behind the photograph. There are many locations I have been to time and time again, waiting for that right moment or bit of atmosphere that I know will make the shot successful, and often it is the weather that completes the image.

Honorable Mention

Care Hanson
Evidence of Sun before the Storm
Found object assemblage and collage
19 x 16 in. | $275.00

Artist Statement: Weathered objects harbor stories. They vibrate with the deeper frequency of life. They have scars, character and often grit. Behind this weathered frame, I discovered an empty mat with ‘Ron + Bird 67’ printed in faded red. Like a secret that begged to be recognized. Reminiscent of something lovers would carve in a tree. I fleshed out the story with an altered photo collage.

The title of the piece is a nod to the frequent use of weather as a metaphor for life’s joys & trials. (Eg, When it Rains, it Pours. Her head was in a fog. He was the sunshine of their life).

I like to think that Ron and Bird shared days of joy and sunshine before the dark clouds gathered.

Print, digitally enhanced oil pastel on canvas board
25.5 x 32 in. | $250.00

Photography
24 x 18 in. | $200.00

Artist Statement: Nature is all inspiring. It can reflect all types of emotion. It is a goal of mine to show just some of the majestic force and feelings it can evoke. Although I don’t think it can be totally shown on paper or canvas, I hope my small efforts do it justice.

Michelle Ward Ciancio
Earth on Fire
Acrylic
18 x 24 in. | $725.00

Artist Statement: This work was inspired by the California wildfires of the past years. The artist imagined the perspective off-shore, gazing over the bow across a burning coastline. The artist wanted to communicate a sense of calmness in the water, contrasted against the fiery destruction waiting ashore. We all sit together in this small boat bound for land, at the precipice of serene waters and the chaos which climate change promises to deliver. The work has only become more poignant since the Australian wildfires of late 2019.

Carla Fitzpatrick
Rolling Front
Oil on canvas
24 x 30 in. | $700.00

Artist Statement: With a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art, I enjoy creating works in many mediums- 3 dimensional art made of glass and iron and 2 dimensional work using oil paint. All my work has a similar theme whereas my inspiration comes from nature. I grew up on a small farm and worked in my family’s landscape business for many years, spending the majority of my waking hours outside. I have grown up learning to care for and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. I enjoy sharing my view of the world through my work. Living in rule Northeast OH provides and endless amount of beauty and inspiration for my paintings. Rolling Front, oil on canvas, captures a storm front rolling in over the hills of an Ohio farm.

A Chance Meeting In The Rain
Watercolor
12 x 9 in. | $100.00

Artist Statement: Ambivalent relationships- should I go outside while it’s raining? Will anyone else be looking to meet someone, a chance meeting in the rain?

Roger Galbraith
The Ice Lady Cometh
Photography on canvas
16 x 24 in. | $50.00

Artist Statement: My best pal accidentally hit upon these icicles in Summit Metro Parks and shared her find with me. She is the “Ice Lady” in pink. Lots of ‘Oh Wows’ again and again as we took photos. My first ‘Oh Wow’ to stalactites and stalagmites came as a child visiting Mammoth Cave. What a wonderful experience to find them out my back door and marvel at them for their brief existence while capturing my best pal as the “Ice Lady.”

Charity Hockenberry
Dancing Cirrus Clouds on Lake Erie
Photography
12 x 17 in. | $400.00

Artist Statement: Photography is a documentation of time passing using the perspective from a life journey. I see it as a passage from a story to stop, and ponder concepts using nature’s elements. This is a collection of personal experiences recording time.

I visually search for open windows within a natural environment, and emphasis my subject within the space revealed. I enjoy moments where the reality of life is pushed towards infinity from human experiences. I observe nature and watch the environment change during these moments of change.

The concept of light contrasting against natural environments grab my attention inside a composition. It’s a balancing act between ideas, perceptions, subjects, and moments passing through the camera. These concepts are highlighted as I visually encounter those windows for a brief moment in time. My passion is to search for random puzzle pieces as an attempt to make sense of the world. They provide the document to understand, and contemplate the beauty behind our existence.

Tree on Fire
Photography
13 x 11 in. | $175.00

Artist Statement: Being an avid walker, in rain, sun, or snow, I get inspired daily by the changing sky. On this day, the sun shining trough the tree and the cloud shapes give the illusion of a tree on fire.

Here Comes the Sun
Archival inkjet print
17 x 22 in. | $358.00

Artist Statement: We thought the rain would ruin the day, but we went out anyway. Actually, the rain became the hero of the shoot by providing reflective, oddly shaped pools upon which the emerging sun could dance. No, we don’t curse the rain. We look for the magic.

Happy Dog on the Ice
Photography
12.5 x 15.25 in. | $45.00
*net proceeds donated by artist to Pawsibilities

Artist Statement: It’s very easy to hibernate during the winter in Northeast Ohio: it’s cold, it’s snowy and it’s nearly always gray. Seasonal Affect Disorder is real and it can be hard to avoid.

Hiking is an excellent way to combat winter’s effect on us. The crisp air is invigorating, perspectives unattainable at other times are now open, the joy of a companion is tangible, and occasionally we’re treated to a beautiful sunset.

So while we might “hate winter” for the weather here, embracing the opportunities it presents can also bring pleasure.

Foggy Morning at the Lake
Photography
12.5 x 15.25 in. | $45.00
*net proceeds donated by artist to Pawsibilities

Artist Statement: Colorful, vibrant sunrises and sunsets are enjoyable for nearly everyone. Conditions for a beautiful view are variable and one can easily be unexpectedly thrilled or disappointed. But sometimes, when we take a little risk in less than ideal conditions, we’re rewarded with a view that brings us pleasure.

I went out on a foggy morning, hoping for a colorful sunrise that broke through. It never did. And while I was disappointed by that, the views offered by a heavily fogged in lake were thrilling in their own, unique way.

One foggy morning. One interesting image. Two divergent emotions.

Sunrise
Acrylic on panel
24 x 30 in. | $980.00

Artist Statement: In my paintings my primary focus has been the house in the landscape. With this I can either include the weather or eliminate it in my painting by changing the color or manipulating the subject. In the painting Sunrise I have made the sky and clouds part of the primary focus along with the time of day.

Janean Ray
Cleaning in the Rain
Digital photography
16 x 20 in. | $75.00

Artist Statement: Since the 1970’s every year at Yankee Peddler the Boy Scouts help collect the garbage every Saturday and Sunday for three weekends in September. There were times when 100 buses a day would roll into the festival grounds, coming from all corners of Ohio and beyond. That didn’t even count the droves of people who were local and came in for the festivities, crafts and food. So, you can imagine just how much garbage that would generate each day. You see the scouts all day long pushing around their primitive looking wheelbarrow while dressed in 1700’s attire themselves, to keep the look of Yankee Peddler’s 1776 authenticity. At the end of each day you will see them taking the last of the 50-gal bags of garbage up the hill to the dumpsters despite weather conditions. This was one such day.

I was there helping a friend with her booth when, while closing, the skies opened in a torrential downpour. Patrons were taking shelter wherever they could. Small rivers of water were being formed in the ruts of the dirt roads. From our tent, looking out through the curtain of water there they were… two Boy Scouts covered in garbage bags for protection from the rain, dragging the last few garbage bags down the road. These young men exemplify what it is to be a Boy Scout.

Since 1910, Boy Scouts have learned responsible citizenship, character development and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities and educational programs. In Scouting, boys learn through the experiences of camping, hiking, building projects and community service.

I would say these young men on this day, defined “self-reliance” through their community service at Yankee Peddler. They could have chosen to take shelter under one of the many tents or pavilions, but they chose to weather the storm, to get their job done. THAT is the Boy Scout way!

Janean Ray
Win, Place, Show – ‘Get Off My Cloud’
Digital photography
18 x 24 in. | $125.00

Artist Statement: Many sports and their participants must endure weather conditions and some in fact need the weather in order to participate in their sport. The Olympics are built around the weather. Skiing and ice skating to swimming and track and field. Some sports are called off or put on rain delay such as golf, baseball, and tennis. Other sports endure the weather no matter what the conditions are; football being one such example. There are some sports such as auto racing, or horse racing that are dependent upon how bad the weather is to not endanger the lives of the participants due to track conditions but, on the flip side extreme heat and dry conditions can also be dangerous. But sometimes the weather is just temperamental enough to create conditions that make the sport a little more exciting or thrilling and in this case of harness racing it’s a little of both. Some horses don’t do well on wet tracks or as on this day the track was considered “sloppy”. But race they must! A close-up of this steed’s face shows either his pleasure, dislike or determination of or despite the weather conditions.

Kurt Shaffer
Rainbow and Lightning at Sunset
Photography 
20 x 30 in. | $350.00

Artist Statement: As a young teenager, Kurt received a camera from his father, a gesture greatly underestimated at the time.

Growing up in California and Illinois, Kurt found much to photograph from the start. A deep love of nature and its conservation was sparked during his scouting years by his Eagle Scout father, while from his artist grandmother he inherited a natural eye for composition. These qualities pervade his work to this day.

In the early 1990s, Kurt began a transition into what for many years now has been a full-time professional photography career, encompassing a wide range of commercial photography as well as creating fine art nature, landscape and abstract photographs.

“My therapy is time spent in nature,” he says, which he shares in the purest form possible, noting that “what I photograph in nature is exactly what I see, using Photoshop only to adjust, if needed, exposure, cropping or clarity.”

Incorporating his photographs with an interest in alternative modalities of healing, in 1992 Kurt created PhotoHealing, an art therapy project in the form of a multimedia slide show that saw wide presentation in healthcare facilities, churches, libraries and other public and private venues. Since January of 2018, PhotoHealing is a published monthly e-mail, featuring up to 50 of Kurt’s most beautiful and intriguing photos made each month. A labor of love many recipients look forward to each month.

Since 1980, Kurt has called Cleveland, Ohio home, and has found endless photographic opportunity throughout the state, in every season. He often startles viewers with the beauty he finds in the commonplace: “I see beauty in places and things many pass by unawares.”

Artist Statement: The late fall evenings start getting cooler and shorter. The colors of the sky intensified as I grew colder waiting on the perfect colors to emerge. My shivers and wait time in my shorts paid off on one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen.

20 x 30 in. | SOLD

Artist Statement: The Towpath Trail is a popular hiking destination in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I love to be the first one there early in the mornings to enjoy the beauty and serenity. The foggy drive in kept everyone away and I had the place to myself. I know I was the only person to see this exact foggy sunrise and I will treasure the beauty of the memory forever.

Morning Fog
Photography
19 x 27 in. | $450

Artist Statement: This is Crayon Lake in Northern Ontario Canada, early June. Low clouds and fog at sunrise created a beautiful and calm setting for a waiting boat and eager fishermen. The pristine area is only accessible by Float Airplane and is a true wilderness experience. Wolves, bears, moose, eagles, otters, beavers, fox and bobcats abound in these remote forests. Spectacular sunsets happen daily. It is truly a photographers dream.
