Reflections of Cleveland is a photography exhibition observed from a new perspective. Artist and gallery owner Christina Sadowski says “After purchasing my purple kayaks, dubbed “The Mermaid Squad,” I decided it would be a great idea to incorporate 3 of my passions- photography, Cleveland and kayaking. What started out as a “let’s see what I can get” took off into a “I think I can make a solid show out of this.”
Sadowski went out on the Cuyahoga River and Lake Erie at sunrise and captured the city before it woke up. The glass-like water created a mirror effect and the beautiful colors that came to life in the sky were breathtaking. Sadowski says, “I found beauty in the abandoned buildings, steamships and work zones. The skyline lit by the morning sun intrigued me. Being in a kayak allows you to sit extremely close to the water and offers a very unique vantage point. I hope that people get a sense of what it was like for me on those early morning paddles and can appreciate the serenity in these images.”
These photos will be on display January 19 – February 16, 2018. The opening reception for Reflections of Cleveland will be on January 19th from 5-9pm at e11even 2.
