The will feature the work of 150 artists, and Cleveland Heights Patch has selected a few to tell you about. We'll provide a brief profile of one artist each day leading up to and during the event.
Artist Linda Adato specializes in etching landscapes, especially the urban ones all around her at her home in Brooklyn, NY, but she doesn't pigeonhole herself to one place.
The rooftops and trees she can see from her back porch, the financial district and ancient ruins have all served as inspiration for her work.
"I work in the printmaking technique of intaglio in which the areas etched are below the surface of the plate. I am attracted to the dramatic interplay of light and shadow which can be achieved in the etching process," Adato wrote in her artist's statement on her website.
