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.
The one drawing I have from my childhood, circa 1983!
