An exhibition of abstract drawings by Northeast Ohio artist Erik Neff opens Friday, June 24, with a public reception from 6 to 9 p.m. in the spotlight gallery space at Heights Arts.

Working on a variety of surfaces such as plaster, wood, paper and slate, Neff creates a dialogue, or narrative, between the marks and shapes of an image through a "back and forth" process of scraping, gouging and applying color pigments.

Neff has exhibited in galleries and museums in Cleveland, Youngstown, New York and Chicago, including MOCA Cleveland, SPACES gallery, and Elizabeth Harris Gallery. He lives and works in Newbury, Ohio. 

Neff’s drawing will be exhibited in the spotlight gallery through Aug. 6. For more information, visit www.heightsarts.org or call 216-371-3457. Spotlight gallery exhibitions are a program of Heights Arts Working Artist Membership, and are curated by members of the Heights Arts gallery committee.
