Canton Artists League: Art in Bloom
March 16 - April 14, 2013
The Canton Artists League (CAL) Spring Show, entitled “Art in Bloom,” is presented in the Upper Galleries of the Canton Museum of Art. This year's show features more than 60 original pieces in a variety of media, showcasing some of Canton's finest artists.
The show's opening reception will be held on Saturday, March 23, from 2:00 – 4:00pm, including music by Kid Rodz. An awards program for this judged show will be presented at 3:00pm during the reception.
"This show, a biennial event, is an opportunity for CAL members to exhibit in a prestigious venue, the Canton Museum of Art," said CAL president Ted Lawson. "For some CAL members, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. This event is open for CAL members to show their work without restriction by the jury process. The only jury process comes with the judging for prizes."
The Canton Artists League is an associate of the Canton Museum of Art, which provides a venue biennially for the League’s members to exhibit their work. The membership of the League is now 58 active members, range from ages 50 to almost 90, and consists of amateur and professional artists who gather for the purpose of camaraderie and the continuation of honing their skills.
The media represented in this year’s “Art in Bloom” show includes watercolor, oils, acrylic and photography, as well as pottery, wood sculpture, jewelry, weaving, mixed media, colored pencil and more.
