New Canons, founded by Maxwell Wolf, presents a poignant and prickly Nevadomi collection at this years’ Independent Art Fair being held next week at the Battery Maritime Building in Manhattan.
Thank you Steve Litt for once again shedding your very dim light on one of Cleveland's greatest artists. Last time you tried hard to diminish Carl Gaertner resulting in a swell of attendance through our Cleveland School exhibition. Now you pick on Ken Nevadomi, whom you have targeted before, hopefully with the same result for the much deserved AAWR. The exhibition is a profound slice of Nevadomi’s brilliant career, artfully hung and clearly beyond your grasp. Or, perhaps you simply enjoy expounding on lurid details to the detriment of each composition while ignoring Nevadomi’s mastery of form and color.
You’ve worked hard to earn your place as the Darth Vader of Cleveland’s Arts community.

A Wild Ride: Ken Nevadomi 1976 – 2006
The Artist Archives announces Ken Nevadomi exhibition
June 17 - August 7
Some artists have careers which unfold over time – beautiful, clean arcs that advance doggedly toward a mature style. Not Ken Nevadomi. A fearless innovator and unapologetic iconoclast, Nevadomi’s creative journey rides like a rollercoaster: twisting, looping, and changing directions at break-neck speeds.
WOLFS Gallery is pleased to announce the representation of Ken Nevadomi (b. 1939), one of Cleveland’s premier figurative painters. Included is the acquisition of Nevadomi’s own remarkable collection of paintings spanning his celebrated and prolific career. Known for his direct and often controversial figurative subject matter, Nevadomi’s art is an intuitive and personal response to contemporary culture and urban drama.
