“A Saint for Everything”
856 Jefferson Ave. (#26 on Walkabout Map)
“A Saint for Everything” displays a multitude of “takes” on an illuminating subject…There are tons of patron saints. You name it, the church probably has a saint for it, thank Heaven! In honor of All Saints Day, let’s honor all the saints—even if they’re patrons of really obscure and wonderful things. You never know when you might need them!
Music by Francesca Macri

Her hours are now consumed by creating commissioned artworks for corporate and private collections, directing Robert Hartshorn Studio & Gallery in Tremont (Cleveland), and teaching others to find their own painting voices.

“Leaning to Abstraction”
815 Jefferson Ave. (#21 on Walkabout Map)
“Most of my work leans to abstraction. Whether a screen print, a painting, or both, this is my current avenue of artistic expression. I often utilize printmaking techniques in combination with painting and photography. I photograph settings, drawings and poured imagery. I digitally recompose and screen print onto paper and canvas. Often, I paint on the substrate before I print. I maintain a steadfast reverence for color, as it is a vehicle on which our emotions are delivered” – John Saile.
“Color Me Out”
2180 W. 11th (#41 on Walkabout Map)
New analog color photography from Herald Martin. A Cleveland-based photographer, Martin draws inspiration from his background in street photography and visual design to find inspiration from his environment and the “joys and hardships of everyday life.”
