My good friends at Spice of Life Catering Company have opened up a restaurant on Cleveland’s West Side. You’ll find it right on the corner of Detroit and W 58th Street. Not only will you find great food and a nice atmosphere, but you also find six huge prints from Left of Center Photography hanging on the walls!
Toward the end of last summer, while I was eating under the trees at Holden Arboretum with Chef Ben and his wife Jackie, they mentioned that in their search for a new kitchen, they found a whole restaurant. I asked if they were going to need any art to decorate the place but at that point they weren’t exactly sure since it was all so new. Fast forward to late this winter and I get a call from Jackie asking if I had anything they could use. She described the style they had in mind and my heart sank. I knew I just didn’t have it in my portfolio. The best way to describe it would be a late fall/early winter harvest type of imagery. And with Cleveland not exactly having a typical snowy winter I didn’t see much opportunity to go out and capture some pictures that would fit the need.
Then, just two days before Christmas it snowed. I also just happened to find myself out in eastern Ohio farm country. Luck was on my side. A few hours in the car and I had what I hoped they were looking for and it turns out that I did.
Just last Tuesday the restaurant opened up. The prints made it there that day and are on display until Spring. Stop down, grab a bite to eat and check them out!
