  • On the Pulse: Latest Works by, Jamie A. Bradley- This exhibition focused on the ‘here and now’ of the Cleveland independent music community.
  • Kevin D. Carmont: Listen to these Pictures- Kevin D. Carmont shared a very personal collection of Cleveland-related photographic images, documenting musicians from the late ‘70’s music scene to 2005. Included in this survey are strangers, comrades and collaborators such as Styrenes, Pere Ubu, Foreign Bodies, Jim Jones, Dave E. with the Cool Marriage Counselors, Golden Palominos, The Wild Giraffes, Wally Bryson, along with some performance images of national acts.
  • He’s Back!: The Photography of Walter Novak- Award-winning photographer and Czech native Walter Novak came to Cleveland in his 30s. His skill with a Nikon landed him the job of staff photographer for Scene Magazine and he became a fixture in the region’s concert scene. With access to the front of the stage for some of the biggest music events to pass through Cleveland in the ‘90s and early 2000s, Novak captured some breathtaking images. In 2009, Novak returned to the Czech Republic for five years and only recently came back to his beloved adopted home of Cleveland. To celebrate, we are presenting this gallery show which samples some of Novak’s finest music photography.
