Combined Efforts - "Love & Art"
About this Event

Join us for champagne and light bites on the 2nd floor at The Metropolitan at The 9 as we welcome Eileen and Garret Weider to the LK Gallery.

Eileen Dorsey

Capturing both local landscapes and fantasy scenes in vibrant hues, Eileen Dorsey paints meditative forests of light and color. Dorsey expresses the energy of the places she visits through impressionistic or expressionistic marks. Emphasizing our connection to nature as a healing and rejuvenating experience, Dorsey’s paintings transcend reality to achieve an emotional impact.

Dorsey studied fine art at Kent State University under Charles Basham, who left a lasting impression on her work, culminating in a joint exhibition at the Massillon Museum of Art. She won Cleveland Scene’s Best Artist in 2020 and 2018, and Cleveland Magazine’s Best Artist in 2020 and 2019. She earned awards in juried exhibitions including Akron Art Prize, Brecksville Center for the Arts, and National Arts Program. Her work has been exhibited at the Butler Institute of Art and the Riffe Gallery and is included the collections of ARTneo, University Hospitals, CARTA, and the Judson Foundation.

Garrett Weider

Cleveland born and raised. A Graphic Design degree from Ohio University, but I always felt the need to PAINT! I needed to be freeeeeee.

I love color and derive inspiration from graffiti, comic styles and pop art. I think there’s some design influence in there too. But I’m a restless soul with a need to keep growing and experimenting.

I did the corporate design thing for a while, and after years of doing shows and hustling on the side, I took the leap to full time artist for a few years now. The struggle is real but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Hit me up if you’d like something custom made just for you!
