REPEAT patterns in art and design are the repetition of lines, shapes, tones, colors, textures and forms. We have asked photographers, artists, and designers to explore patterns to discover their decorative elegance; to understand their structural form; and to communicate their intrinsic beauty. To show Cleveland repeated patterns which remind us of life beyond itself; and which has the impress of imagination strong on it; and something which can be done with pleasure.

**Our Featured artist for July 26th is Jim Szudy. He is the Director of the Cleveland Photo Fest, a freelance photographer, and founder of Gemini Developers, which assists local photographers, musicians, and painters, in marketing, social media, writing publications, and web design.
