Treehouse – 820 College
Scott Radke, multimedia artist
Don’t get spooked—despite their gnarled hands, corpse-colored skin and sunken eyes, Scott Radke’s (@scottradkeart) creations come in peace. “If you wanna get creepy with it, it’s real easy! Any film or music video [they are] involved in goes straight to the dark side,” says the 44-year-old sculptor, whose work made a cameo appearance in Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.” Even if Scott prefers to bring his caterpillar people and bodiless, baby-cheeked creatures to life in suburban Cleveland nature preserves, he understands the desire to situate them in more shadowy worlds. After all, many of them were born there: Before discovering yoga and meditation, Scott displaced his anxiety and panic attacks by carving their faces.

Edison’s – 2373 Professor Ave.
Artist Jill LeMieux
“I create animal portraits with personality. Using pointillism and a mosaic-like style, I have developed a signature look that explores color, contrast, and texture. My technique, combined with the subject matter, results in work that is intense, yet playful and often humorous.”
