Parma Art Scene

By Charles E. McNoldy

The holidays are fast approaching, as we contend with supply chain issues this year it makes more sense to shop small, shop local. Buying local from small businesses, independents, artists and craftsmen is a wonderful way to ensure the dollars spent will support your neighbors and community. 

Holiday Boutique at Prama Artspace & Gallery, 5411 Pearl Rd, has enlarged their boutique through the holiday season to make your shopping easier. You’ll find an assortment of hand painted purses, back-packs, jewelry, books, decorative boxes. Postcards, greeting cards, magnets, wax melts, mugs, scarves, face masks and ornaments, all made by local artists. 

Currently on exhibit until December 5th, at Prama Artspace & Gallery is Charles McNoldy, a photographer and owner/operator of the Parma Pro Photo Lab. He is also a poet, and on display are some of his Christmas poems. He can be reached at

Opening on December 10, 2021 is June Hund’s mixed media abstract exhibit Excessive Wakefulness, her journeydealing with insomnia.
