Lake Erie Artists Gallery is a gallery collection of art by local Cleveland, Ohio artists in order to offer wonderful art gifts in a variety of media to the discerning public.
We started out in 2003 as a small co-op of artists that joined together to offset the cost of the many summer art shows around the region. Then, in the late fall of 2005, we were offered a temporary home for the holidays at Tower City in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.
On April 1, 2006 we were granted permanent space inside the old J.Crew store on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Tower City Center, and we were extremely excited. Having a storefront brought us more recognition and contributed to bringing people back to Tower City Center.
In March of 2007, we moved to a new space on the first floor which was much more suited to our needs, including gallery space, a studio for teaching classes or tutoring, and lots of room for small items like jewelry.
We have continued to grow with new and bigger events, more artists, and more varieties of media. We are proud to represent the wide range of artistic ability available in our wonderful city on the shores of Lake Erie.
In July of 2013, a new chapter started for Lake Erie Artists Gallery. We moved into an office above the Cedar Lee Theater in Cleveland Heights, OH and decided to partner with a co-op of artists called Hessler on the Heights. We started teaching our classes in their space on Lee Road, and continuing to do the Shaker Square Farmers Market every other week.
It is now 2017 and we no longer have a brick and mortar location. However, we still offer unique items on our gallery website that you can follow through social media or our email newsletter.
