June 3, 2021 - June 30, 2021

STILL PERFORMANCE is an exhibition of more than 80 live concert photographs by 21 Northeast Ohio photographers. Michael Weil, owner of Foothill Galleries in Cleveland Heights, conceived of the exhibition as an opportunity to celebrate and raise money for local photographers and live music venues that have seen their revenue streams halted by the pandemic. With the enthusiasm of the Grog Shop’s Kathy Blackman, we expanded the project from a single gallery show into a Cleveland-wide celebration of 6 decades of stunning images made by talented professionals and amateurs alike—all devout fans of live music. Photographs depict some of the most celebrated musical acts of our time (including Chuck Berry, Dolly Parton, Yo-Yo Ma,  Devo, Chrissie Hynde, The Who, Iggy Pop, The Rolling Stones, and Bruce Springsteen) as well as many of Cleveland’s favorite performers at our favorite local stages—past and present.  We feel honored to have a special selection of images of Michael Stanley and MSB included in the exhibition.

A jury consisting of Fran Belkin, Kathy Blackman, Amber Ford, Michael Loderstedt and Michael Weil chose the final group of images from more than 240 submissions.

A selection of Still Performance images will go on view beginning June 3, 4-8pm at Foothill Galleries as well as at the B-Side Lounge below the Grog Shop.  On June 4, Photocentric Gallery in Collinwood will unveil another selection of the Still Performance images. Later in June, Blue Sky Brews in Little Italy will show a selection of the images and additional work will go on view at music venues around town including Mahall’s, The Beachland Ballroom, the Music Box, and the Happy Dog.

All the images are for sale and proceeds go to the photographers and the non-profit Cleveland Rocks PPF organization that supports local musicians and stages.

Participating photographers are: Rustin McCann, Karen Novak, Joe Kleon, Cyndee Burden, Tom Ziska, Ken Blaze, Robert Townsend, Randy Norfus, G.M. Donley, Brian Lumley, Robert Muller, Anastasia Pantsios, Herb Ascherman, Michael Weil, Jimmy Davis, Michael Loderstedt, Amy Pappas, Roger Mastroianni, Jarrod Berger, Bridget Caswell, Janet Macoska.
