Known for his pointilist works, Christain Faur, an artist who often uses crayons as a medium, relocated from New York to Granville, Ohio in 2000. He works there on the faculty at Denison University. Now, one of his pieces is coming to Cleveland.
His portrait of President Trump will be on exhibit by Columbus-based Sherrie Gallerie, which is one of 16 Ohio dealers exhibiting and selling works at the CAN Triennial Art Fair
at 78th Street Studios.
The portrait is made entirely out of Saltine crackers. The six-foot square portrait required the careful toasting of thousands of crackers to varied shades of brown to create a sepia-toned likeness of the President.
The gallery will be open from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, July 20, and from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 21 and Sunday, July 22.
