They don't just teach art, they're artists

Julie Cikra's mixed media work, "Train," is part of the "Pathways" exhibit opening Sept. 7 at BAYarts.

BAYarts staff and faculty teach and exhibit the work of others, but often are not recognized for their own work. The Dianne Boldman Gallery is dedicated to exhibits by faculty, students and staff working on the campus.

Opening on Sept. 7 in conjunction with "Three Views" in the Fuller Gallery, "Pathways" is a mixed media exhibition by education assistant Julie Cikra and faculty member Kiane Padrutt.

"Pathways" documents the routes and pathways we travel. Ms. Padrutt examines the back roads and the routes less traveled with her large scale paintings and ceramic work. Through small encaustic (hot wax) paintings and large mixed media works, Ms. Cikra looks at our human pathways through technology and transportation. 

Meet the artists on Friday, Sept. 7, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. with small bites provided by local Cleveland chef, David Ash.
