Phyllis Seltzer: The Italian Works, Paintings and Heat Transfer Prints - Thursday, May 14 - Saturday June, 20, 2015

The Galleries at Cleveland State University, 1307 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland
FREE opening reception on Friday, May 29, 5:00-7:00pm
Presented by CSU in partnership with Consolato Onorario d'Italia a Cleveland, Consolato d'Italia a Detroit & La Gazzetta Italiana.

The celebrated Cleveland artist Phyllis Seltzer, primarily known for her iconic paintings of Cleveland, is also a part-time resident of Venice, Italy. Her lesser known and never-before seen in Cleveland Italian Works will be the focus of this exhibition. Seltzer's works are part of numerous public collections, including the Cleveland Museum of Art, MOCA Cleveland, the @Museum of the city of New York, and the U.S. Department of the State.

Architectural essence pervades Seltzer's oil paintings, which become the plates for works skillfully adapted to create giant prints in a heat-transfer technique that enriches the image as it allows for multiple small-edition printing. Extensively traveled, with a home in Venice, Italy, Seltzer captures the essence of her favorite cities — Cleveland, New York, Chicago and Venice, as recognizable "city- scapes" filled with landmarks that take liberties with things as they are.
