Opening Reception, 5 - 9 pm May 18th
PopEye Gallery proudly presents A Flowering Pep Talk Curated by student Rachel Moell in conjunction with Omid Tavakoli and is funded by a generous grant from the Fenn Educational Foundation.
A Flowering Pep Talk features work from Joey Goergen, Nolan Meyer, Rachel Moell, and Destiny Ryan. These artists work with a confidence in mark and color that exudes vibrant, rose-colored, and bursting energy throughout any room they are in. The work made by these artists has a strong personality and has something to be said. They have an energetic voice, and engage and speak to the viewer in a variety of ways, from conversations of childhood memory to daydreams and pop culture. This one-night show is accompanied by a pop-up shop with zines, shirts, pins, and more from all of the artists in the show.
An opening reception for A Flowering Pep Talk takes place from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 18th during Third Friday at 78th Street Studios. Immediately following the reception, local musician and co-founder of Survival Kit Brian Straw presents free performances by local bands and musicians in the gallery.
PopEye Gallery is located in Suite 303 on the third floor of 78th Street Studios. As always, all Third Friday events are free and open to the public. For more information about PopEye Gallery or these artists, visit PopEyeGallery.com.
This exhibition is made possible by the Creativity Works grant available to sophomores at the Cleveland Institute of Art through the generous support of the Fenn Educational Foundation.
