Heard there is a new event in town – 3rd THURSDAY? And what happens then to the ARTWALK?

Downtown Akron welcomed a new experience with the unveiling of 3rd THURSDAY in June.  As an evolution of the long-running Akron Artwalk, a team of local artists and community members with Downtown Akron Partnership developed 3rd THURSDAY as a new monthly event highlighting the arts, culture, cuisine and entertainment offerings available in downtown. You will be able to take the free trolley to more than 20 destinations from the Northside District to The University of Akron for art, music, events, shopping and dining the third Thursday of each month. Thanks to the City of Akron for its support of downtown events. For more information on 3rd THURSDAY, please visit downtownakron.com/3rdthursday.

Summit Artspace is excited to be a part of the new Thursday event and among the line-up of amazing locations.

AKRON ARTWALK still has a place in the hearts of local residents as a destination for the first Saturday night of the month. Summit Artspace has had a long and fulfilling relationship with Artwalk and the visitors who come regularly for arts and culture have become our friends!

Summit Artspace, Northside Market and Zeber-Martell Studio & Art Gallery are proud to be your “night out” when the first Saturday night of the month rolls around and you need your art fix! All three locations will be open from 5 to 9 pm.

Art will still be the focus! Artists will be in their studios talking to visitors about their craft and showing their latest pieces. You may even catch some of them creating. Ask questions! They love it! Many of the studios double as shops so you’ll be able to browse the artwork for sale.

At Summit Artspace, galleries will be open. Admission is free. The galleries will regularly exhibit new and wonderful shows that include photography, painting, sculpture, collage, glass, found objects and fiber artistry. There is the Summit Artspace main gallery and the Transition Gallery on the first floor. On the third floor you’ll find Gallery A run by the Akron Society of Artists and The BOX Gallery run by the Artists of Rubber City. Galleries have varying schedules and may not all be open for Artwalks.  Here is map of floors 1 and 3.

Each month will feature pop-up shops from local artists as well as local musicians lending their melodies to the upbeat atmosphere.

The Northside Market is a celebration of the community of the Northside District. We strive to work with other artists, entrepreneurs & businesses to create opportunities to promote unity and growth.

The address is 106 N Main St. in Akron, Ohio (across from Luigi’s). A perfect opportunity to pick up something different and support local makers, artists & vendors. The Northside Market is a local shopping experience including handmade goods, fine art, vintage items and more.

So when June rolls around, Summit Artspace will be open for Artwalk, same as always, on the first Saturday, June 3, 5-9 pm. See the schedule going forward below. We encourage Akron and Summit County residents to head downtown for the first 3rd THURSDAY on June 15. Summit Artspace on East Market will be definitely be open with art and a building full of music!
