Jaime Barks displays paintings of Cleveland at the Public Library

Posted

Local artist Jaime Barks has been working to share her love of Cleveland by creating paintings of various buildings around town.

Although Barks is not a Cleveland native, she says she has fallen in love with the community. “I love the beauty of this region. Cleveland is a lovely place filled with so many caring and community minded people,” Barks said. In addition to her paintings, Barks is also committed to and involved in her community.

Her “Where I Live” series will be on display at the Cleveland Bradley Public Library until Oct. 20. She has prints of the paintings, also, and will be selling her work at ArtFest at the Museum Center on Oct. 24.

When she is not painting, Barks is also an avid sketch artist. She often rides her bike to a location she wants to paint in the future and spend a few moments sketching the building to use as inspiration. She will be teaching a class during ArtFest on how she does her watercolor sketches. For more information or to register, visit her website: www.JaimeBarks.com.

Also, Barks coordinates sketch meet-ups for local artists as an extension of the Cleveland Arts Center. The next meet up will be Oct. 8 at 6 p.m. at Bonlife Coffee. More information about the meet-ups can be obtained by joining the “Cleveland Creatives” group on Facebook.
