If Cleveland wasn’t feeling lucky already, the Lucky Charms exhibition will provide more elements of good fortune for Clevelanders.

Opening July 15th from 5p-9p at E11even 2, the works of Andy Dreamingwolf, Randy Maxin and R!ch Cihlar will be on display. The term, Lucky Charms, means so many things to so many people, but all elements of this exhibition will reflect on some of those feelings.

Dreamingwolf says “I’m genuinely fascinated by objects in which their outcome or output is based on their given users actions with said items. It’s a sort of “luck is what you make it” analogy. To me when a “Lucky Charm” is stripped of its habit and superstition, the core you’re left with is comfort. And that can come in many forms, be it confidence, memories, or tangibles.

R!ch says “When I typically think of lucky charms, I think of cliché items like horseshoes, rabbits feet, or a four leafed clover, but I also realize that there are so many other objects or thoughts that make me feel lucky. My works will reflect both of those ideas of traditional and nontraditional lucky charms.”

Maxin says “I feel lucky everyday, having the friends and family that I do. My pieces will reflect more of the sentiment behind the objects in the form of patterns and repetition. The idea that everyday is a good day… or a lucky day.”
