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

Saturday, August 5, 8pm

Bruce Marshall, Shaker Heights (Images of America)
a booksigning

Our own Shaker Heights achieved international renown in the early 20th century as an enclave for wealthy residents—a city of stunning homes, substantial green space, an excellent school system, and attentive municipal services. Cleveland entrepreneurs O. P. and M. J. Van Sweringen established Shaker Heights as a haven from the stresses of city life and claimed a connection with previous residents of this land, the North Union settlement of Shakers. Shaker communities sought to create paradise on earth by living communally and focusing on the life of the spirit. Buyers in Shaker Heights were assured that their paradise would last forever because of restrictions on what could be built and who could live there. Nevertheless, Shaker Heights has changed from a protected environment for the wealthy to a stable, integrated city that intentionally promotes diversity in its population. This is a remarkable story of dramatic change but also continuity as residents pursue the goal of creating an ideal community. Arcadia Publishing, 07/26/2006,  paperback, 128 pages, $19.99

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

Thursday, September 7, 6-8pm
Dawn Pierce:  Before Dawn
Annex Gallery Opening Reception
This art show is a tribute to some master painters much enjoyed and admired.  Like many artists, Dawn's desire to paint is driven by other artists.  Having met Andy Warhol at a party, she recalls his words that every work of art is not original because it can be traced back to some other image.  The work she has sold is kind of like creating a contact lens of another artist's eye.   How wonderful  that these works will be hanging somewhere besides the artist's own living room.
Show continues through October 2.

Saturday, September 2, 10-5pm
Larchmere Sidewalk Sale
bi-annual sales event
Labor Day weekend brings out the bargains on Larchmere Boulevard with their bi-annual Sidewalk Sale.  The 50+ shops and services who reside on Larchmere Boulevard (just a block north of Shaker Square) will display special sales merchandise on the sidewalks and other discounts throughout their retail stores.  The art and antiques district is known for the quirky, esoteric, and rarities and there are only two Sidewalk Sales per year.  This is the real deal in community and neighborhood shopping; don’t miss it!

Thursday, October 5, 6-8pm
Nancy Underhill:  Transformations
Annex Gallery Opening Reception

Nancy's huge and intricate colored pencil renderings are at first sublime abstractions, but upon closer inspection reveal intricacies of nature.  Photographic details become points of departure for the artist, as small pieces may be cut up, rearranged, and turned upside down in order to transform the subject matter into abstraction.  Thus, nature overlaid with human interaction becomes a celebration of color and shape.  Show continues through October 30.
