Snag some history at Space: ROCK

Michael Stanley by Joe Kleon

Wouldn’t a photo of your favorite musician or that concert you still remember fondly look great on your wall? Music photography gallery Space ROCK (15721 Waterloo Road) will offer you the chance to snag that photo while picking up some additional prints for holiday gift-giving.

The gallery will host two holiday photo sales in December, featuring work by some of the area’s top music photographers, including Joe Kleon, Janet Macoska, Karen Novak, Anastasia Pantsios, and George Shuba.

They’ll take place from 6-10 pm Friday December 6 during Walk All Over Waterloo, and noon-4:30 pm Saturday December 14, to coincide with the annual Beachland Ballroom Holiday Flea Market, giving music-lovers a reason to spend the afternoon on Waterloo.

Visitors will be able to buy prints directly from the photographer of both major superstar acts and popular local bands. They’ll include Shuba’s photos of ’60s acts like the Beatles, the Who, Sonny & Cher and the many hit artists who appeared on Cleveland’s nationally syndicated Upbeat Show for which Shuba was the house photographer. But they’ll also include the photos that Kleon has shot recently of artists like Taylor Swift, Alice Cooper, and Michael Stanley.

If you stop in to browse and chat with the photographers, you’ll also be able to see Space: ROCK’s current show, A Sound Baseline: Making Music Work, devoted to the behind-the-scenes that keep the area music scene humming. That show runs through the end of December.
