Coffee Phix Cafe Local Artist Showcase At Coffee Phix Café, we are proud to support local artists by exhibiting their work on a rotating basis at the café. We will feature a new artist each month. All art is available for purchase if designated by the artist, and will be exhibited at the café for approximately 27 days.
We believe this to be an exciting model of art support and distribution. It is keeping with the cities efforts under the Storefront Art Initiative Project, to give local artists, students and others, an opportunity to showcase their artwork, and in this case in one of South Euclid's most community based businesses. For the café, it allows us to provide an already welcoming environment, an ambiance and culture that is pleasing to the eye of the customer.
Artists interested in participating in our Local Artists Showcase please contact us via this site or email . For those artists who choose to sell artworks, The Coffee Phix Cafe will be allocated 20% of each item sold.
Elisa Vietri The Coffee Phix Cafe has struck a home run again with Cleveland photographer, Elisa Vietri, best known for her ability to surreptitiously document the nuances of her fair city, but that is far from her only talent. Her eye for beauty has captured portraits, events, and landscapes around the world with her distinctive style. From postindustrial landscapes, to the cliffs of Italy’s coast, to America’s Route 66, Elisa’s camera has found every type of neighborhood, architecture and expression, both human and inanimate. She brings the world around her to life with her lens.
As the premier photographer for the Cool Cleveland weekly newsletter, Elisa’s work has fascinated Cleveland aficionados for several years. Her 2011 one woman gallery show at Beck Café opened to local accolades. Elisa describes her work as “documenting my life and living a life I really want to remember”. She communicates that via her camera lens, in details that many never notice. Much like the slow food movement teaches us to eat mindfully, Elisa’s photography teaches us to observe with a mindful eye.
Elisa also has a studio in Cleveland's Little Italy, "Moonstruck CLE" located at 11917 Mayfield Rd, Cleveland, OH 44106. Come check out her exhibit at the Phix for the month of April. https://www.facebook.com/elisavietriphotography/
