I've received some concerned emails about The Cleveland Plain Dealer article on our Frank Wilcox exhibition. I've learned to be grateful for any coverage they give and to disregard the unfortunate reviews. I thought sharing my letter to the editor and one of another disgruntled patron would adequately explain our reaction to The Plain Dealer.
If you haven't seen the exhibition, it's really worthwhile, or I guess we'll let you decide.
A century later WOLFS exhibits the works of one of the Cleveland School’s greatest artists - Frank N. Wilcox, known as “The Dean of Cleveland School Painters." This comprehensive exhibition will encompass over 200 works
depicting American scene, Europe, the Northeast Coast and American west, spanning much of Wilcox’s remarkable career.
In a 1967 interview with Kate Wurm, Bosa declared that “An artist should first of all be himself." In Bosa’s case especially, there appears to be little distinction between the artist and his art. Words like ‘quirky’, ‘whimsical’, and ‘mischievous’ appear frequently in descriptions of Louis Bosa’s character, of which there are many. Such language aptly describes Bosa’s paintings as well; best known as a painter of street scenes populated with an array of unusual characters, Louis Bosa’s work is perceptive, individualistic, highly stylized and difficult to categorize.
