Opening reception Saturday, June 4, 6-8 pm -
Artist gallery talk, 7pm



Hope Zaccagni, a painter from Alfred, NY, has been documenting Cleveland Flats in these new oil paintings. Cleveland Flats is an industrial area in Cleveland, OH, where many abandoned steel mills and related buildings that supported once-thriving industries.


Artist's statement
My architectural paintings are of buildings, spaces and places that we tend to pass by and perhaps not notice. The subjects are the neglected corners of old warehouses, alleyways, doorways, industrial sites; the everyday, mundane places we see walking to work, driving to the store or places we catch out of the corner of our eye as we rush by that are punctuated by a beam of sunlight or attract me because they are so out of place or so much in their place.
