DOUBTING THOMAS – 856 Jefferson
Tim Joyce—Ephemra, a solo exhibition
Throughout his hardscrabble childhood, Tim was taken with cityscapes, steel mills, the trees of Northeastern Ohio, as well as the people he encountered—all of which he would sketch, draw, and paint. Interweaving music, poetry, and painting with journalism and teaching, he has found constant inspiration and a desire to express how the passage of time is imprinted on both lives and scenes.

Jim has been a self-employed graphic artist/illustrator in Cleveland since the mid 90s. As a child, his love of cartoon work in Mad Magazine as well as Odd Rod and Wacky Package trading cards (anyone remember them?) is evident in his wildly, creative work to this day. Not content with just one medium, Jim uses pencil, ink or water color when at his art table – and Adobe Creative software when generating digital art at his computer.

TREEHOUSE – 820 College Ave.
Thomas Mulloy—photography
I bring my camera on every story I cover as a writer and editor, shooting portraits of actors and directors, members of Cleveland’s huge stable of talented musicians, a small group of young Golden Gloves boxers from a Cleveland gym, the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute team as they stepped out the aircraft door at 12,000 feet, and on and on.

Danielle Killinger
While my desire to work with different processes and media has prevented me from developing a single signature technique or style that lasts very long, I find inspiration from the people and things that surround me. My most recent artistic endeavors include working with micography, cardboard and glorified doodles.
