In addition to the art openings listed below, the night will have extended hours at art galleries and retail shops like Banyan Tree, Tidal Cool, Evie Lou, Grain and more, and a variety of holiday-themed food and drink specials at Tremont’s restaurants and bars.


DOUBTING THOMAS – 856 Jefferson
For years. Painter Chris Yarmock, who sang in the legendary Cleveland band Easter Monkeys, has been working on a new set of paintings in a modern setting. Lesica, a driving, intense guitarist who played in Knifedance, creates abstract works with sharp geometric shapes and muted yet moving colors.

BAC – 2661 W. 14th

She enjoys showing the work she creates in the art-friendly neighborhood of Tremont.

EDISON’S PUB – 2373 Professor Ave.
I can be stopped dead in my tracks by something as routine as a leaf lying in the grass or a coin stuck in a car door cup holder. It’s my brains particular hiccup – too often be mesmerized by the quotidian. I like to illustrate objects and things of the sort that people might otherwise pass by every day and never consider. Tweak them, group them, bring the odd to the mundane, in order to allow for a kind of reconsideration. For a new story to be told. And I’m always, always trying to tell you a story.

LOOP – 2180 W 11th
Preston is an alumni from the Cleveland Institute of Art and the KSU – School of Architecture, he has been a long time artist and resident in Tremont. His photographs are a collection of moments noticed, and perspectives to be considered.

TREEHOUSE – 820 College Ave.
The collection of works displayed represents a variety of students in grades 9-12 from Northeast Ohio College Preparatory School. Student ages range from 14 to 18, and they have varying levels of art experience: some may be taking an advanced senior class intended for students who are interested in art at the college or career level, and some pieces are from students taking their first art class ever. Art class is focused on working like a true artist, rather than strictly following teacher directions—the result is that the pieces reflect students’ own unique ideas and subject matter, and showcase techniques or skills they learn in class and work on independently.

LUCKY’S CAFE –777 Starkweather Ave.
“Autumn Trees” Rebecca Carey was born and raised under the leaves of Lakewood, Ohio. “I was taught to love and appreciate the nature around me. My art is a representation of how I see nature in all her seasons.”

Gearhart is a prolific sculptor and teacher. Fred leaves no part of his work untouched. Every surface suggests a micro-perspective of a much larger process or idea. His methods meld traditional tools and materials with nontraditional results. He has shown at the Sculpture Center, Sculpture in the Village of Gibsonburg, Ohio; The Massillon Museum of Art in Ohio; Artists Archives of the Western Reserve, and many local gallery and private collections throughout the Midwest. He works out of his garden studio in Cleveland Heights.

FAT CATS- 2061 W. 10th St
Better known as the Sign Guy, Dave Witzke creates fire-breathing cats, deranged rabbits and other bright, cartoony characters that can be found around almost every corner of the west-side Cleveland neighborhood. Originally a graffiti artist, the Sign Guy sells his work online, at local businesses and at festivals.
