Constant Background, prints by Bruce Edwards opened May 9, 2014 and ran through June 14, 2014. This was the last exhibit at Brandt Gallery at 1028 Kenilworth. (*NOTE Jean Brandt continued exhibits in the adjoining storefront called The Lab through the end of 2015.)
I certainly did not think in 1990 when Terry Durst opened his exhibit Olde Stuff a Ten Year Retrospective in my storefront law office that 25 years would go by so quickly.
I cannot possibly in any manageable space begin to thank the countless people who contributed with their artwork, talent, skill, purchases, donations, time, and/or just being there at the events because you are a part of the Northeast Ohio arts community and that’s just what we do, but allow me to say here if you are reading this THANK YOU.
These years have been an incredible experience for me.
The demands of my law practice and commitment to those clients is but one of the reasons at this time it is not practical to continue the on-going art exhibits at the space.
My need to tend to my own artistic endeavors is but another.
As is often said, as one door closes another opens, I certainly have not ruled out the possibility of working in the operation of an art gallery again. At this juncture for myself and the artists who may have exhibited in the future it makes sense to bring this chapter to a close so that other opportunities might be pursued.
