Artist Reception: Debra First

Friday, February 2nd, 6-8 pm

Join us for a prosecco and cheese reception for Debra First, our artist of the month for February.

Debra, a native of New York state, made her way to Cleveland to attend The Cleveland Institute of Art.  She received her BFA in 1991 with a major in Photography and a minor in metals.  She ran her own photography business for 12 years, during which she ran several photography classes and produced commercial work; her photographs are displayed in all the guest rooms and lobby of the Hyatt Hotel at the Cleveland Arcade.  Debbie also created a book documenting the closing churches in Cleveland’s Catholic diocese, entitled Founded in Faith.
Debbie has never left the arts, but she has begun to explore other media. She works a great deal with fiber and jewelry.  She brings together influences from around the world, creating pieces that speak to people with pattern, color, and design.  The collection presented this month at Appletree Books highlights these influences.  Most of this work features globally sourced materials and ideas.
