Every Third Friday of the month from 5 – 9 pm, over 40 venues inside 78th Street Studios open up at the same time to present compelling visual exhibits, ambient music, delicious cuisine, and pop up vendors. Named Cleveland’s Best Arts Event by Scene Magazine and Best of Yelp Cleveland, Third Fridays is a multisensory art experience like nothing else in the region. With four different floors of eclectic architecture and visual displays, 78th Street Studios is a retail adventure that allows the public to interact with Cleveland’s living artists and to discover authentic art, furniture, and cuisine made in this region.
That’s why the Ohio Art League would like to congratulate member-artist Chad Cochran on his inclusion in this month’s Third Friday cultural collaboration! Follow the link to learn more about the artist on his photography homepage.
In an effort to get back in touch with his roots in rural Fredericktown, Ohio, Chad began taking photographs of the rustic landscapes that surrounded him as a child. His fascination with decaying buildings and vintage signs provides him with the connection to the small town he grew up in and the ability to share those experiences with us art lovers.
Tonight (July 18th), you can get a firsthand glimpse at some of Cochran’s photography on display in the Laurel Herbold Studio, Suite 107 in 78th Street Studios from 5- 9:30 pm, or by appointment.
Ten Rooms: New Work is a culmination of some of Cochran’s reproductions of dilapidated barns and houses, vintage signage, and rural landscapes. Cochran’s use of image with object elicits a nostalgic response in which the viewer can’t help feeling an intimate connection with the scene.
See our beloved Ohio countryside in new form in Ten Rooms, now through August 15th at 78th Street Studios, 1300 W 78th St., Cleveland, Ohio.
