    OH, MY STARS! - FINAL WEEKEND

    Thank you so much to everyone who came out to celebrate the opening of Oh, My Stars! and to those of you who will be filling your homes with new art! I was thrilled to hear the vivid memories – and to be surrounded by the joy and laughter – that my work brought up.

    The exhibit closes Sunday. I'll be there Saturday from Noon-2:00ish hanging out. I hope to see you there...and if you see something you want to take home: even better! Bewitched characters, Wonder Woman, The Golden Girls, Lucy, and many other pop icons from the '60s, '70s, and '80s await!

    RAY CASPIO: OH, MY STARS! Opens June 6th

    Oh, My Stars!, my first solo illustration exhibit, will feature limited edition hand-signed pieces spanning the past six years of my illustration work. It opens June 6-22 at Maria Neil Art Project!

    Opening Reception:
    Friday, June 6, 5-10pm

    Ray Caspio is an actor, performance artist and illustrator. He will be featured in the annex next to Native Cleveland with an exhibition of his drawings of some of the most memorable and entertaining women of vintage television. Get reacquainted with Laverne & Shirley, Maude, Wonder Woman, Alexis Carrington and Samantha Stephens through Ray’s intricate and fun drawings.

    We’ll be partnering with Star Pop vintage + modern to show some fun items that compliment the art on display. Star Pop's vintage pieces are the perfect compliment to Ray's work!

    Ray's biggest influences have come from '60s, '70s, and '80s pop culture. Growing up, television was his life and he was enamored with strong female characters, many of whom were funny, campy, and capable of superhuman feats; most of whom existed before he was born. Oh, My Stars! is the ongoing exploration of the personalities who have fascinated, shaped, and taught him since he first learned to twitch his nose in his grandma's front room while writing cursive L's on every page of his baby book.

    The exhibition opens on June 6 and runs through June 22 and will be shown at the Native-Cleveland Annex between Native Cleveland and Star Pop.
