Gallery Open House and Meet the Artist: SEE ME Photographs by Michal Chelbin, Curated by Matthew Garson

"SEE ME" explores the artist’s play on one's identity. Michal Chelbin’s photography attempts to capture human stories in everyday life; the identities of people not in the mainstream, many of them belonging to the edge of society and existing in the space between the odd and the ordinary. Her main themes are not social or topical, but collective and mythical; she searches for people who have a legendary quality in them.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to hear directly from the artist, who will be town from Israel.

7 - 8:30 pm
Artist talk at 7 pm

Roe Green Gallery
Jewish Federation of Cleveland
Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Building
