Gallery 202 shows and sells selected artworks from their second floor space at 78th Street. Their small showroom next to their exhibition space is a finely curated art store. Unique! Some of my favorite artists in Cleveland join me on the store’s roster, and Gallery 202 highlights all of us during the holiday season.

I finally supplied ten photographs to Cleveland Foto Fest’s social art project that seeks to collect and compile one million photographs. CPF is launching the first public showing of the current state of the project, 173,000+ photographs, at the Bostwick Design Gallery in Cleveland November 18. 

(November 19—last night at the opening a friend excitedly reported to me that he had discovered one of my thumbnail size photographs in one of the seven eight foot tall montages.

A fractal/generative artwork, Lightworking will be provided to WeCAN, at The Doubting Thomas Gallery in Tremont.  This group show echoes the CAN Triennial by featuring artworks refused by their cutorial team. Count me out but count me in! Actually, Lightworking wasn’t submitted to the CAN Triennial, but WeCAN curatorJohn Saile saw it, and had an empty lightbox, so, back to the Doubting Thomas Gallery I go for a second appearance in the group show of refuseniks.

Stephen Calhoun - Dringwiwa Chorus

Dringwiya Chorus is installed in the Heights Arts Member’s Show. In addition, the artwork has been selected by a Cleveland poet to respond to in an upcoming installment of the ongoing series Ekphrastacy. Because my late twin brother Timothy Calhoun was a prominent poet, I am deeply touched by this selection.

Three years ago I provided over 125 5×5” single edition prints for a pop-up exhibit at Article, Waterloo Art District. This summer this affordable art concept will be rolled out again, this time featuring 5×5/8×8/12×12 prints and small studio proofs. The pricing between $15-$150 is part of the point of the show. My art is accessible, is for all ages, and so it is always a lot of fun to add or jump start people’s collections.

Stephen Calhoun - Sentinel IV   March 22:2022  

The Eye’s Mind, a group show comprising envelope-pushing photographic work created by Jeff Benedetto, Stephen Calhoun, Braxton Daniels III, J. Leopold Francl, Tina Gutierrez, Larry Hamill, Irv Oslin, Kate Shannon, will be exhibited at The Mansfield Art Center, Mansfield, Ohio August 28 through October 16. The exhibit will be installed in the spacious, light-filled Elizabeth T. Black Gallery, the second floor of one of Ohio’s premier exhibtion spaces. The opening is September 4.

I am super excited to have the chance to exhibit large photographic artworks in this stellar space. Because of the pandemic, I have been stockpiling the first rank of my iterative photographic body of work. Most of what I have plotted out for this exhibition will be shown for the first time. 

Exhibit runs August 28 — October 16, 2022

Gallery 202 at 78th Street has invited me to provide a handful of iterative artworks rooted to botanical theme for a group show, Botanica! As it happens a substantial body of work of mine is anchored to flowers and plants, and to my backyard garden. I was happy to oblige with a selection of both large and small photographic artworks.
