Spring show opens March 1 at St. Paul's gallery

Paintings by John Jodzio.

Featuring the work of four artists, the spring show at the nonprofit Nicholson B. White Gallery at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church opens on Friday, March 1, with an artists’ reception, 5–7 p.m. The show will be on view through June 2.

Paintings from John Davis’s recent “Urban Period," in which he explores distinctive spaces and places unique to Cleveland, will be featured in the spring show. A native of Cleveland, Davis works in his studio in the city’s Tower Press Building. He spent 30 years in Chautauqua, N.Y., where he established Davis Pottery and Gallery while raising his family.

Susan D. Lowe creates her mixed-media artwork at the historic Shovel Works Building in Cleveland. She is a pioneer member of City Artists at Work (CAAW), which began as an organization of artists aiming to educate the public by opening up their studios and demystifying these workplaces. Inspired by nature, her work combines a range of painting materials, inks, paper and wood surfaces. This show includes both two- and three-dimensional work by Lowe.

Inspired by paper airplanes that he crafted with his son, John Jodzio’s paintings in this show are still-life studies of this simple, handmade toy, as well as portraits painted in a similarly geometric style. A resident of Shaker Heights, Jodzio works in his home art studio.

Jerry Keller’s Little Italy studio and gallery is where he creates decorative art glass for local private and corporate clients. In his creations, Keller uses kilns and the firing process to “slump” and fuse glass. His works in this show comprise a variety of forms, shapes and colors.
