After a long, cold winter, Cleveland’s art scene is beginning to thaw. With more spaces opening their doors due to the warm weather, now is a great time to explore some of Cleveland’s artistic offerings. From experimental photography to woodcuts and art created right here in Cleveland, here are three regional exhibits to check out before the end of June.
With the Cleveland Photo Fest canceled this year, Bonfoey Gallery co-directors Diane Schaffstein and Marcia Hall are doing their part to show Cleveland what life is like through the lens of six regional photographers with unique perspectives and techniques. The exhibition, which runs until June 30, features photographic projects ranging from hand-stitched collages to photographs infused with gold leaf and printed images developed with the 19th-century wet collodion process, which requires that photos are developed immediately after capture. 1710 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, 216-621-0178, bonfoey.com

Threshold: drawn to paint
As you enter the apartments at Worthington Yards, it’s hard to miss the rotating exhibits by local artists, a collaboration between Yards Projects director Liz Maugans and Dalad Group chairman Neil Viny. This exhibition, which runs until June 26, blurs the line between drawing and painting. 725 Johnson Court, Cleveland, 216-570-0324, yardsproject.com
