Eells Gallery at Blossom to Feature the Work of Cleveland Artist Dana Depew, July 3-28Posted Jul. 8, 2013
The Kent/Blossom Art Festival's Eells Gallery, located on the grounds of the Blossom Music Center, will present work by Dana Depew, from now through July 28. The Eells Gallery, curated by Kent State Gallery Director Anderson Turner, is open two hours prior to and through the intermission of every Cleveland Orchestra performance.
Depew is a Cleveland-based artist working in a variety of media, including found-object sculpture and painting. These found objects can include textiles, water tanks, exit signs and house paints. Depew’s biography states, “[Depew] resurrects thrown-out cast offs and found objects into wholly new and unique objects.”
Depew studied sculpture at Kent State University. In 2013, Depew was named one of the “Most Interesting People” by Cleveland Magazine. For more information about Depew, visit www.danadepew.com.
The Eells Gallery was established through a gift from William H. Eells, one of the founders of the Blossom Music Center and the first chairman of its Board of Governors. The gallery is named in honor of his parents, Hastings and Amy Eells. It is located on the Smith Plaza at the Blossom Music Center between the Frank E. Joseph Garden and the Bandwagon Gift Shop.
