Dana Depew – Artist

The Berea Arts Fest is thrilled to have Cleveland area artist, Dana Depew, as one of its demonstrating artists for the 27th annual Berea Arts Fest.  Dana is a Berea resident and is highly respected in the Cleveland art scene and community. He is well known as gallery owner, curator and installation artist, in addition to his many hats.   Dana frequently uses found objects as art.  He reuses wood, found objects and old signs to breath new life in to creative solutions works of art.  His work can be found all over town including (but not limited to) Melt Bar and Grilled, Big Fun, The Children’s Museum, and many, many more! (Just google him!)

Dana will be demonstrating how he builds bird houses in his “Aviation Factory”.  Guests will be able to watch, interact, and perhaps take one of these bird houses to install somewhere around town. (If you’re lucky!)  The bird houses will be made from the lumber found in old homes (set for demolition) and other resources that would have other wise put his material in a landfill.

Guests should listen for the sound of a miter saw and air-nailer to find Dana’s Aviation Factory (booths 26-27).  Dana will be creating all day long at the 27th Annual Berea Arts Fest, on Sunday Septeber 10, 2017 from 10a-5p.
