2015 Members Showcase: Off The Wall

2015 Members Showcase: Off The Wall

The Cleveland Print Room is seeking member submissions for our 2015 Members Showcase: Off The Wall, December 4 – December 18, highlighting the work of the valued members of our organization.


This show is open exclusively to current members of the Cleveland Print Room. This is a free, non-juried exhibition to showcase the work of our valued members.

All members may submit at least one original photographic work for this exhibition. Non-members who are interested in participating in the Members Showcase may join at our standard membership rates (Individual: $35; Student: $20; Individual+one: $50; Family: $75; Friend of CPR: $100; CPR Sponsor: $250) when dropping off work for the show.


The show title explains the manner in which the work will be sold during the exhibit. Each member is asked to submit one or two photographic pieces. At least one will be hung and when one work sells, the second piece will be added to the gallery walls for sale. The weekend of the opening, Saturday & Sunday, December 5 and 6, is the ArtCraft Holiday Sale. During this once-a-year event, we open our doors at the Print Room to over one thousand art patrons hoping to find that special piece for the holidays. Thus, we will be selling members’ work directly off the walls.
