19th Annual FRESH Juried Exhibition 


Jan. 13 – March 18, 2023  

Betty and Howard Taylor Main Gallery, Summit Artspace 

Art accepted to FRESH must be innovative and challenging to both the viewer and the artist. Accepted artists will have pushed the boundaries of what art can be—stylistically, conceptually, or technically—and will challenge the viewer to see the world through a new lens. Work must have been created since Jan. 1, 2022 and not previously displayed in Summit Artspace. 

Juror: Michael Gill, Executive Director and Editor of Collective Arts Network (CAN) Journal 

Deadline for Entry: Dec. 9, 2022, 11:59 p.m. 

Entry Fee: $15 


1st place: $200 

2nd place: $150 

3rd place: $100 

If the $15 entry fee is a barrier, or if it would prevent any artist from entering, please reach out to for free or discounted entry.




Call for BIPOC+ Artists 

Summit Artspace invites local BIPOC+ (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) artists to apply for a funded solo exhibition juried by Dr. Tameka Ellington, CEO & Founder of First-Generation Revolutionaries, and Letitia Lopez, Executive Director of the Julia De Burgos Cultural Arts Center. Through a blind-juried process, one artist will be selected to receive a $1,000 stipend to support the creation of a solo exhibition in Summit Artspace’s Horizon Gallery during the 2023 spring exhibition season (April 7 – June 17). 

The application opens on Sept. 15, 2022, and closes on Nov. 15, 2022. The selected artist will be notified of acceptance by Dec.1, 2022. More details and the application are available on Submittable (CLICK HERE).

The exhibition is funded in part through general operating support from the Ohio Arts Council, Akron Community Foundation, and GAR Foundation. 

There are no calls for vendors at this time.
