Lines & Shadows: works by Steven Mastroianni & Rebekah Wilhelm - Cleveland Print Room - Cleveland

Join us at the Print Room on Friday, November 8 from 5 to 9pm as we present new works from Cleveland artists Steven Mastroianni and Rebekah Wilhelm.Show Statement:Lines, words, scratches, and shadows trace symbols and patterns through the work of Wilhelm and Mastroianni. Ink and silver emulsion develop into strange maps and unread stories in stark contrast of black and white. Through repetitive marks the artists use and reuse lines, symbols and text to create bold, yet complex graphic compositions on paper, evoking fences, fields, stars, and stories.Bios: Steven Mastroianni is an artist, photographer, educator, curator, and musician from Cleveland.
