Local Rock Photographers Will Put More Than 200 of Their Photos on Display at Loftworks Gallery

Last year, close to 1,000 people attended a rock 'n’ roll photo show featuring the work of local photographers Joe Kleon and Anastasia Pantsios at the Loftworks Gallery. The duo will return to the gallery with a new exhibit that opens with a reception that takes place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 9. The exhibit closes on Nov. 11.

The second installment of Rock/Roll Perspective features more concert photos and additional behind the scenes and backstage shots. The gallery will be open from 2 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 10 and from noon to 5 p.m. on Nov. 11.

Most of Pantsios’ photos were taken from 1975-1989 and Kleon, a Scene contributor, has been shooting for the past 15 years. Pantsios started shooting concerts in Cleveland in the 1970s and Kleon has photographed over 1,000 concerts and shoots an average of 100 concerts a year. He is the official photographer for local acts such as Michael Stanley and Wish You Were Here.

More than 200 photos will be on display with additional prints available for sale in the biggest offering yet by these two photographers. 

In conjunction with the exhibit, local reggae singer-songwriter Carlos Jones will perform at the gallery from 5 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 10, and classic rockers Eroc & Jim, members of Wish You Were Here, will perform from 1 to 4 p.m. on Nov. 11.
