The Canton Artists League Spring Show, entitled “VISIONS,” will be exhibited March 16 – April 16, 2017, at the Canton Museum of Art. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, March 16, from 6:00 – 8:00pm.
The Canton Artists League is an associate of the Museum, which provides a venue biennially for the League’s members to exhibit their work. The membership of the League consists of amateur and professional artists for the purpose of networking and sharing artistic experiences in the Canton community. The media represented in this year’s “VISIONS” show range from watercolor, oils, acrylic and photography to pottery, wood carving, fiber art, mixed media, colored pencil, and more. Artists include Peter Castillo, Jack Fetzer, Carolyn Jacob, Sharon Mazgaj, Nancy Michel, Irene Tobias Rodriguez, Frank Dale, Lynn Weinstein, and more.
An affiliate of CMA since 1997, the mission of the Canton Artists League is to provide enriched opportunities and encouragement for professional, semi-professional and amateur visual artists and individuals with a sincere interest in supporting art. This is accomplished through a combination of exhibits, shows, educational workshops, field trips and community support programs.
The Canton Museum of Art, supported by Cleveland State University, University of Mount Union, Malone University, Kent State University Stark, Myers School of Art at The University of Akron, Columbus College of Art & Design, and Walsh University, presents the 26th annual Stark County High School Art Exhibit, on view March 31 through April 16, 2017, in the Museum’s lower galleries. Admission to the exhibition is FREE.
The Stark County High School Art Exhibition provides an excellent platform for aspiring artists to have their work exhibited in a prestigious museum setting. All pieces presented are original works created as part of school curriculum and chosen by the school’s art instructor. Each school is limited to ten entries with no more than two per artist. Works are judged on both originality and technical ability.
An awards ceremony will be held on First Friday April 7, at a reception scheduled from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. All are welcome to attend. College scholarship awards for the First, Second and Third Place will be presented at 6:00 pm.
