12/10: A Closer Look at Beck Center

Posted By on Wed, Dec 9, 2009 at 11:32 AM

In her efforts to depict nature, Debra Sue Solecki has painted with acrylic, casting images in colored-paper pulp. She’s also used real fish in her printmaking. Lately, she’s turned to close-ups that almost completely remove her subjects from their context to reveal lines and texture. They’re not quite abstractions, but they’re not too far off either. Imagine if you had the time to simply sit by Lake Erie’s shores and stare at the undersides of decaying tree stumps or the grooves and bubbles that form in the riverbed slate. Most of Solecki’s work in A Closer Look is chalk pastel, but you’ll also find paintings, collage and pencil drawings. The show opens with a reception from 5-7 tonight and hangs through January 30 at the Beck Center for the Arts (17801 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, 216.521.2540). Admission is free. — Michael Gill
