The mission of CWAL is to foster an inclusive artist community in Greater Cleveland. We provide exhibition & collaborative opportunities, resources & education.

Founded in 2010, CWAL is here to support the indie art scene in Cleveland. Our members are invited to show at 2 all-member gallery exhibitions annually, as well as having opportunities to submit work for juried shows and projects, in-studio and around town.

Membership is open to ALL artists, everywhere.

We are located at 1305 West 80th Street inside the 78th Street Studios complex on level 1, Cleveland Oh 44102.
