Photographer Stuart Pearl is a distinct product of Cleveland. A life-long resident and second-generation Ohio artist, his work reflects the region’s shifting industrial realities, hidden revelations, and the people who travel its landscape.


To accompany the exhibition Stories in Light: Stuart Pearl, A Retrospective the Artists Archives is pleased to present two unique opportunities to take a deep dive into the five decades of work on display. Though diverse in subject matter, the breathtaking images are united by a painterly attention to narrative and light, as well as a compelling desire to capture the texture of life in Northeast Ohio.


The first event is a small group artist talk on Saturday, February 12th, 1:00 – 2:00pm. Join Pearl as he walks you through the exhibition and 50 years of his rich career, including rare, early photojournalist work and exquisite nature photography captured for the Cleveland Metroparks. The event will be limited to 15 people. Masks are required, and social distancing will be observed. Please contact the gallery if you require seating or other special mobility considerations by calling 216-721-9020 or email info@artistsarchives.org.

About Stuart Pearl: Photographer Stuart Pearl is a lifelong Clevelander who loves to promote our city’s growth and transformation.  He believes that subjects like the Innerbelt Bridge Project, urban skylines, and the Emerald Necklace all present opportunities for telling stories through the art of photography. Pearl’s documentary technique is to be patient and methodical. Looking for the special light that transforms a mundane scene into a memorable image, he enables the viewer to see his surroundings in an entirely different way. His goal is to create images that have lasting impact, striving to capture unique sites around Cleveland that at first may appear common but in fact tell the story of the city beginning at its core. Pearl believes that photographers should support one another through mentoring and constructive critique as part of the creative process.  As an artist he believes there is a responsibility to foster dialogue with those in our larger community.  This can help create a stronger cultural appreciation for everyone. He has exhibited in the Metroparks, Erie Art Museum and Butler Institute of American Art. He currently serves as AAWR’s Board President and is a wonderful asset to this institution.
