About the Book
Exhibition catalogue of collected works by Craig Lucas by friends, colleagues and fellow artists. Craig Lucas (1941-2011) was an important Northeast Ohio painter and educator, teaching art at Kent State University for many years. Book highlights small paintings, prints and drawings from the exhibition, and accompanying texts written by the lenders of his works.
Michael Loderstedt’s work incorporates photography, printmaking, artists books and installation. His recent projects have examined the first European landing sites in the New World and “garden cities”; utopian urban communities from the early 20th century in both Europe and the United States. His most recent project, a large-format screenprint that when cut and folded creates a mid-century paper ocean liner complete with text in both German and English describing his own family’s immigrant history. Loderstedt lives with his wife, photographer Lori Kella and their son Ethan in Cleveland, Ohio near the shore of Lake Erie.
