Loftworks Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of “BEING,” an exhibition of photographs by Rebecca Groynom, on April 6, 2018 from 5:30pm to 9:00pm at 1667 East 40th Street, Suite 1A in Cleveland.

“[Being is] the nature or essence of a person. A common sense of BEING, no matter how varied our journeys through life.”

Rebecca Groynom produces digital and film photography, working mainly in black and white. She uses photography to document her world, creating images of fleeting moments. Whether it be a stranger’s glance or a serene moment in an urban or natural setting, she brings to the forefront the images that capture her attention at that moment.

Groynom travels throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia documenting the people and places that shape her experiences. Her work has been showcased in solo gallery exhibitions locally in Cleveland, in addition to juried competitions in Manhattan, Los Angeles, and Portland.

Circus Show

Loftworks Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of“The Circus Show,” an exhibition of photographs by Mike Wilkes, on May 12, 2017 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.

In January, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, best known as the Greatest Show On Earth, informed the world that the circus would come to a close in May. In honor of this 146-year-old tradition, Loftworks Gallery presents, “The Circus Show” beginning May 12th and will be open until their final performance, on Sunday, May 21.

The Circus Show features photographs by Cleveland-based photographer, Mike Wilkes. Wilkes traveled with the circus along with his beat up Nikon F2 and 30 rolls of film in the early 1980’s. He joined the team as a roustabout to experience and document the backstage circus life through photographs. What resulted was a rare retrospective glimpse of life behind the scenes of the circus and its people. “They’re mostly the square pegs that don’t fit in the round holes anywhere else” said Wilkes about his fellow roustabouts.

In May of 1983, Plain Dealer Sunday Magazine featured Wilkes’ stories from the circus in an article titled “The Roustabouts” by Brian E. Albrecht. In the article, Wilkes said “It’s a neat way to travel. You don’t see America by freeway. You see the real America by riding a train though it’s backyards.”

Come celebrate this American institution at the crux of their final show at Loftworks Gallery for an exhibition of these unique photographs. In true circus fashion, there will be something for everyone. Wilkes will share his perspective and memories of time on the road with the circus at the opening reception on Friday, May 12th.
