'Through Our Eyes' exhibit focuses on Huntington Reservation

"Huntington Surf Shack" by Barb Cawley is part of the BAYarts exhibit "Through Our Eyes: Huntington Reservation."

What could be a more inspiring subject for an artist than Huntington Reservation?

Throughout the years, the reservation has inspired many works in varied mediums by BAYarts students and faculty, in paint, photography, pastels and collage. "Through Our Eyes: Huntington Reservation," an exhibit of about 50 works by various artists, is on display through the month of September in the Dianne Boldman Education Gallery in the Huntington House.

Artists such as Bob Moyer, Mary Deutschman, Mel Gruneau and Christine England are just a few artists represented in this mix of archival and newer work, some done as recently as this summer in plein air workshops. Some of the work is for sale at affordable prices. Others will remain in the BAYarts archives.

The exhibit highlights the best of Cleveland Metroparks, now asking park lovers to vote yes for a levy in November that will help preserve and protect the park system and the zoo. The parks have been self sufficient and have not asked tax payers for this type of support in 15 years. BAYarts has been an advocate for the parks and this exhibit highlights why.

Hours to see the show are Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Also on view in the Sullivan Gallery in the Fuller House are the classical paintings and pastels of Peter Brent. Both shows run through September.
