On November 20th from 5 PM – 10 PM E11even 2 will be unveiling its new exhibition, “A Christmas Art Show.” The work is the most recent solo exhibition by Cleveland artist and co-owner of E11even 2, Billy Nainiger. Billy has spent the last five years focused on artwork dealing with pop culture favorites such as The Beatles, Elvis and the cult classic film, “The Big Lebowski.” This past year he has shifted his subject matter and has been creating various mixed media pieces centered on the holiday movie favorite and Cleveland based, “A Christmas Story”. Visitors will be able to see some of their favorite characters portrayed through his work including Ralphie, The Old Man and Scut Farkus amongst others. Billy brings these characters to life through his work which are mainly executed through the use of spray paint, latex and found objects.
E11even 2 will be split in half with a presentation of Billy’s new work and a recreation of interior parts of the beloved Christmas Story house that will even include a real leg lamp! Also available will be ornaments, cards and limited edition prints of Billy’s new work. Come help us bring in the holiday season at E11even 2, located in the popular 78th St. Studios for a festive third Friday to remember.
