James Cozart:  Winter in Bavaria
Annex Gallery Opening Reception
When James Cozart was in the Army during World War II, he took his camera with him.  These are not journalistic war shots however, but rather beautiful sweeping panoramas of the German countryside:  mountains, valleys, and snow, in a luscious black and white depth that capture the deep nostalgia of a time gone by.  New prints of these old negatives bring life to the quiet beauty of the snowy countryside of old Bavaria. Jimmy is a charter member of the Fine Arts Society, founded by Charles Pinkney, and also a long time member of the Karamu Camera Guild.  Show continues through July 31.

Saturday & Sunday, July 8-9, 8:30am-5pm

Pat Mote, Cleveland's Playhouse Square (Images of America series)
a booksigning

In the early 1920s, five opulent theaters—the Allen, the Ohio, the State, the Palace, and the Hanna—opened on a stretch of Euclid Avenue in Cleveland. They offered legitimate theater, vaudeville, name bands and entertainers, and films for the affluent and hardworking citizens of this booming industrial city. Unfortunately, the introduction of television and the flight to the suburbs in the 1950s and 1960s turned the theaters into ghost palaces destined for the wrecking ball. In 1970, a bold group of planners led by Raymond K. Shepardson formed the Playhouse Square Association, a nonprofit group dedicated to saving the theaters. A 25-year restoration endeavor emerged that raised $53 million, culminating in the largest theater restoration project in the world. Today Playhouse Square Center ranks second only to New York’s Lincoln Center as North America’s largest performing arts complex.  Arcadia Publishing, 2006, paperback, 128 pages, $19.99

Friday, July 28, 8pm
Edie Carey
singer/songwriter in concert

Edie Carey grabs hold of her audiences and doesn't let go until she steps off the stage.  Carey's wry and self-mocking humor, coupled with her ability to tell a great story, makes audiences feel as though they have just spent the evening with a very close friend. Given the triple threat of her magnetic stage presence, heart-grabbing songs, and almost unearthly voice, it's no wonder that the word about Carey is traveling fast. Tickets:  $10 in advance, $12 at the door.

Thursday, August 3, 6-8pm
Jeffrey Davis: Fine Nature Photography
Annex Gallery Opening Reception

Jeffrey Davis takes photographs up-close-and-personal.  His subjects are in our own backyards and parks, but with such amazing clarity and magnification that they take on new meanings.  His love for color, texture, and juxtaposition will make you smile and wish for summer to continue forever, even in the dog days of August.  These beautiful images are made even more luxurious by Jeffrey's exquisite use of multiple mattes and fancy edging.  Show continues through September 4.

Friday, August 4, 8pm
Pamela Means

singer/songwriter in concert
Pamela Means is a Boston-based Out (spoken), Biracial indie folk artist whose "kamikaze guitar style" and punchy provocative songs have worn a hole in her guitar.  Armed with razor wit poetry and irresistable charm, Pamela Means' "stark, defiant songs" (New York Times Magazine) set the status quo and the stage afire.  Tickets: $10 in advance / $12 at the door

Saturday, August 19, 1-3pm
Bruce Marshall, Shaker Heights (Images of America)
a booksigning

At long last, a photograph-filled book on Shaker Heights!  Arcadia is a national publisher of small town histories, and while there are many titles on Cleveland and its surrounding areas, there haven't been any on Shaker Heights, and most histories and photograph collection on Shaker Heights are sadly out-of-print.  This welcome new addition fills a void and should find many happy enthusiasts.  Come meet the author to learn even more than the book might teach you about Shaker Heights and Shaker Square.  [book to be published late July, 2006]

Friday, August 25, 8pm
Carrie Cheron
singer/songwriter in concert

The lovely, lilting voice of Boston-based singer/songwriter Carrie Cheron is an art-form all to itself. With a sound that is as warm and rich as velvet, this gifted songwriter and master song interpreter is absolutely mesmerizing.  Following the release of her debut full-length cd, One More Autumn, Carrie brings her charm to the midwest and promises to captivate the crowd amongst the books at Loganberry.  Tickets:  $10 in advance, $12 at the door
