OUR STORY

ARTneo, formerly the Cleveland Artists Foundation (CAF), was founded in 1984 by Cleveland-based artists, patrons, and collectors who recognized the need to establish an organization that would preserve, research, collect and exhibit the most significant visual art of the Northeast Ohio region.  At the heart of ARTneo’s mission is a collection of more than 3,000 paintings, prints, ceramics and sculpture.  As the Cleveland Artist Foundation, the organization’s mission historically focused on a group of artists known as the “Cleveland School” that was active from 1900-1950.  For the past twenty five years, ARTneo has broadened its historical scope to integrate the contributions of artists who were active before and since the “Cleveland School.”  We now focus on the achievements of the most signification artists in Northeast Ohio whose period of productivity encompasses the past fifty years.

Due to this expanded scope, ARTneo has transformed into the premier center for the art of Northeast Ohio, owing to both its significant collecting initiative and to its commitment to creative exhibition planning and educational outreach.  It is the only museum that caters exclusively to the acquisition of regional art, while not charging an admission fee.  The museum is supported through cash and in-kind contributions of many individuals, foundations, corporations, and through state funding, membership and fundraisers.

Current Exhibit

Selections From ARTneo’s Collecction

Selected from ARTneo’s collection of about 3,000 works that range in time from the early 20th-century “Cleveland School” to the present day, we take this opportunity to exhibit paintings, drawings and prints from storage.

ARTneo has a well-earned reputation for art-historically focused exhibitions and publications. This hasn’t changed. However, we are now pausing to consider what an art museum can contribute to the collective healing that is so needed. The unapologetically subjective selection of works sparked strong emotions, connections, empathy, and hope in us. We hope you find the art that does the same for you.

Inspired by the book Art As Therapy by Alain de Botton and John Armstrong, we were convinced by their argument that art can help us to, “achieve self-knowledge, remember forgiveness, and love—and to remain sensitive to the pains suffered by our ever-troubled species and its urgently imperiled planet.”

They wrote, “since the beginning of the twentieth century, our relationship with art has been weakened by a profound institutional reluctance to address the question of what art is for.” As a small institution, we want to change that. So, in raising this issue, we offer some quotes from thinkers/artists who we are far more eloquent than we are on this subject.

Selections From ARTneo’s Collection opens to the public on Friday, February 18, 2022 and will run through May 20, 2022.

The gallery will be open each THIRD FRIDAY from 5pm – 9pm and during our regular business hours Wednesdays through Saturdays.
