Beck Center For The Arts Displays Work of Local Artists in ART TREASURES 2023

Beck Center for the Arts will display Art Treasures 2023, an exhibition by visual artists who bring a wealth of creativity and talent to their work.

The art on display was created by local artists, including: Nathalie Bermudez, Riley Candow, Regina Dorfmeyer, Kurt Hallsman, Mike Jones, George Kocar, Tanya Long, Ikuko Miklowski, Pat Oliver, and Melinda Placko. Ryan Finley is a Cleveland-based freelance hand-drawn artist. He is also a sketch card artist for Topps, Upper Deck and Dynamite. Ryan and his daughter Keira Finley, also featured in this exhibition, recently presented Side by Side: The Art of Ryan and Keira Finley. Patricia Sigmier studied art and architecture at Saint Mary's College in Indiana and has over 20 years of experience as a professional art instructor – including many years at Beck Center. Patricia is a regular exhibitor and a signature member in the juried exhibitions of the Ohio Watercolor Society, where she won the prestigious North Coast Award in 2005.

Melinda Placko, Beck Center Associate Director of Music & Visual Arts Education says, "This show offers eye-catching gifts by professional artists. Shop pottery, comics, jewelry, fine art and craft to support local artists in our Beck Center community."

This exhibition is free and open to the public during regular business hours, including performances, and classes just outside the Senney Theater in the main building, the Hoffman-Stach Gallery, and Daniels Lounge in the main building on the campus at 17801 Detroit Ave. All are invited to a free opening art reception on Friday, December 1, 2023, for a chance to see the items early in the sales process, and meet the artists.
