There will be a panel presentation Monday, March 20, at 7 pm, by the artists whose works are in the Evolving Landscapes Exhbition. The event is free and open to the public. Reserve your seat by going here: ow.ly/tPGa309RPxd.
The 50 works chosen for the exhibition deconstruct the evolving genre to include a cubist urban scene, views of moon and Milky Way and an artistic statement with the calculated use of plastic forest animals.
Summit Artspace challenged local artists to submit diverse representations of landscape art from both traditional and contemporary perspectives in a variety of media. The response was outstanding with nearly 100 artists submitting work. The exhibition runs until April 8.
“We were looking for abstract, representational and alternative interpretations of all types of ‘scapes,’ such as sea, land, sky and urban environments. We think the community will really enjoy the challenge of walking through the exhibition,” said Jeanne Grossetti, exhibitions manager at Summit Artspace.
Gallery hours are Thursdays and Fridays, noon-7 p.m., and Saturdays, noon-5 p.m. The show is open for Akron Artwalk on March 4 and April 1, noon to 9 p.m. Summit Artspace is located at 140 E. Market St., Akron. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
Parking is available behind the Summit Artspace building when visiting the gallery. Summit Artspace is handicap accessible and has an elevator.
