A solo exhibition by Bob Peck
They Never Saw It Coming
20 June – 20 July 2008

Opening reception 7-10 pm Friday, 20 June 2008

Avidly involved in Cleveland’s artscape for more than 10 years, Bob Peck’s street art background continues to influence his work today. Recording our city with movement and texture, Bob paints surreal landscapes by layering spray enamel and acrylic paints. Creating gestural abstractions, he brings reflections of the past and present to his canvases. Nostalgic and diffused, these still lives offer an expression of connection and kinship to his surroundings.

“They Never Saw It Coming” chronicles the expansion of Bob’s portfolio, from adolescence and adulthood. This transcension of work exhibits the artist’s talents and progression from his early graffiti work to current fine art pieces.

Opening reception 7-10 pm Friday, 20 June 2008
