NICE TO MEET YOU!! w/ Katie Parland + Erin Guido 7.13.13 (6PM)

This will be the NICEST show you'll ever meet!! Check it out:

With the Cleveland forecast all over the place, we are ignoring rumors that Friday marked the first day of summer. Instead, the BUCKBUCK meteorologist predicts that Cleveland will experience the solstice three weeks late. According to our calculations, July 13, 2013 will be colorful with a chance of scattered triangles, circles, squares, and scallops!

Erin Guido has background in printmaking and urban planning. She likes fluffy, cloud like coffee from Bonbon, smiling, and decorating Cleveland with the happiest shapes and colors you've ever seen. (www.eringuido.tumblr.com)

Katie Parland studied graphic design and is currently living in Durham, NC. She enjoys public art, dogs, coffee, music, rugby, biking and traveling. (www.katieparland.com)

Together these two women are a force to be reckoned with. While they won't dent your car or level your house, they will knock you off your feet with their powerful use of shape & color.

To top off such a glorious day, we will be serving a home brew made by our good friend Isaac Miller. Cleveland Whiskey will also be in attendance, and will be conducting a series of blind taste tests called the Cleveland Challenge™.

July 13th @ 6:00-11:00 p.m.

Cleveland, OH 44113



Beef, BUCKBUCK’s longtime gallery cat, has decided to leave the studio. On the verge of her departure, we have teamed up with Ohio University’s own, Anna Tararova, to help curate a juried show that honors our furry friends. Donations towards the show will benefit the Cleveland Animal Protective League, who will have kittens/cats available for adoption during the opening reception. 

Hope to see you there!


HEAVY PETALS: Work by Molly Pamela 2.16.13

Hibernation has ended. Now we must show.

Since Art of the Game, we've taken some time to regroup and figure out how to make this year better than the last. We've said F January, how about we kick off the year in a real month: February. Black History, groundhogs, presidents, love, more presidents, and MOLLY PAMELA.

Our newest favorite transplant (from Youngstown!) will be blessing us with her installations February 16, 2013 @ 7PM (the same night as BRITE WINTER!). PALOOKAVILLE will also be serving up hot eats next door, so bring an appetite. Come enjoy the sights and lights of Ohio City and stop by BUCKBUCK for some refreshments and amazing company.

Molly Pamela's mission is to speak for women and to super-soak her audience with her complexities – simultaneously staining all she touches. Her art doesn't run parallel to recurring feminist movements -- it magnifies emotional and unfortunately, political issues concerning the equality and acceptance of women on an intimate scale. Every intricately stitched, glued, colored, and knitted pattern of her work represents the way women struggle. Visual creations became more than a coping mechanism; they became her purpose. Molly Pamela obtained her BFA in Spatial Arts from Youngstown State University. She is currently planted in Lakewood, Ohio with her soil-mate and two guinea pigs.

Opening: February 16th, 2013 @ 7PM
Closing: April 6th, 2013 @ 7PM


ART OF THE GAME: a Celebration of Art & Basketball

October 20 (4-11PM) - November 11

Basketball has become a modern symbol for creativity, style and fashion. On and off the court, the creativity of the game and its players has become iconic in our culture. The fluidity, versatility, grace and individuality of a player's approach has made basketball an artform. BUCKBUCK Studio and Double Scribble are teaming up to think critically about the Art of the Game.

ART OF THE GAME: A Celebration of Art & Basketball
will showcase works from the public and an array of artists and disciplines. A $5
donation will be suggested at the door with proceeds benefiting Pathway: Caring for Children.

We are currently accepting show submissions through October 14th. Paintings, drawings, collage, mixed media, ceramics, sculpture, photography, etc. of all sizes and formats will work... as long as they relate back to the game of basketball in some way. If you would like to submit an animation or digital work, please email us at buckbuckcle@gmail.com so we can make sure we have the proper accommodations.

There is no entry fee for framed, ready to hang submissions. However, there will be a $5.00 fee for any unframed artwork.

Or for digital submissions to the Double Scribble blog, please email doublescribbleusa@gmail.com



Thanks again to everyone who came out to BROTHERS! It was quite the success! If you didn't get a chance to catch it, the show will run through October 14th.

Join us next Friday (Sept. 21st) for our first solo exhibition. BROTHERS features works from two Peter Larson series, BROTHERS and I Am Not Leroy. Drinks, music, great photography and illustration.

Peter Larson is a 24-year-old photographer from Cleveland, OH. In 2010, he graduated from The School of Visual Communication at Ohio University and returned home thereafter. Peter currently works from his space at 78th Street Studios. He hopes to eventually publish an extended version of Brothers in book-form.

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, September 21st 7-11PM

BROTHERS will run through October 14th



Inspired by the spirit of my closest friends, I began this ongoing photo series, Brothers, to capture their unwavering character exposing moments of youth ranging from uncensored debauchery to unguarded vulnerability.

The presence of my camera, along with the interactions with my subjects, blurs the line between staged and candid imagery. Throughout the photographic process, I often observe and question how the camera influences my friends' behaviors, and in turn, how their actions impel my own.

For the subjects, these photographs provide them the opportunity to recall fleeting moments that otherwise may have gone unnoticed or forgotten. Others who may not have a point of reference for these images are encouraged to create a narrative for the photographs.



is series of paintings that I make with india ink. These minimalist portraits serve to offset the technical aspect of my photography while allowing me to make as many mistakes as possible.



We'd like to thank everyone who came out Friday night. Hope you enjoyed the work and the atmosphere. If you didn't get a chance to make it out, don't fret, Haiku will run through Sept. 9th. Open upon request and Sundays 1-4. Don't hesitate to contact us, we'd love to have you.
