To raise funds for ArtSpace36, Cleveland, a Canandaigua resident, has donated four paintings to be given to the first four people who contribute $100 to the gallery. Those who make a $50 contribution will receive a print of one of his paintings.
Originally from Fairport, Cleveland works predominantly in the medium of acrylic painting but also draws and utilizes mixed media. He earned a master of fine arts and a master of teaching at Rochester Institute of Technology.
