Works of Paul Travis '17 at Metropolitan Galleries

On view through October 31

A collection of oils, watercolors and drawings by Paul B. Travis '17, beloved and well traveled faculty member of The Cleveland Institute of Art from 1920 until 1958, is on view at Metropolitan Galleries at Shaker Square from September 28 through October 31. A public opening is set for September 28 from 7-10pm.

After earning his diploma in illustration in 1917, Travis served in the Army in World War I and, according to AskART, remained in Europe for several years where he taught art at American universities in Europe. He also drew and painted extensively in Europe. In the late 1920s, he traveled to Africa with funds from the Gilpin Players of Cleveland's Karamu House. His travels there strongly influenced his art.

Works by Travis were shown in 50 May Shows of the Cleveland Museum of Art and are included in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution, as well as other prominent public and private collections.

The address for Metropolitan Galleries is13119 Shaker Boulevard, in Cleveland's Shaker Square district. For further information, contact Metropolitan at 216-491-1111 orinfo@metropolitangalleries.com
