FEMICENTRIC: 2020 VISION Juried Art Exhibit, Aug. 21-Sept 26
August 29, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Set for the main gallery at Summit Artspace on East Market, FEMICENTRIC: 2020 VISION is juried by noted Akron area artist P.R. Miller. The show revolves around the themes of liberation, evolution, empowerment, entitlement and the progress of women.
Open to local artists of all genders, the show challenged them to create distinctive work that honors and embodies the impact and legacy of women who have shaped history, who are changing the present, and who will impact the future. The art will be complimented by creatively written artist statements analyzing how their work fits the call for art using poetry, narrative or imaginative linguistics.
FEMICENTRIC opens on Friday, Aug. 21, 12 p.m., and runs until Saturday, Sept 26, 5 p.m. Artist awards will be announced by Miller on Thursday, Aug. 20 at 7:30 p.m., and can be seen via video on the Summit Artspace YouTube Channel and social media or highlighted in the gallery. See the winners on our website after Aug. 21.
In addition, the show is open starting at 12 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 5, 2020, and through Artwalk from 5-8 p.m. Artwalk is an art/retail event organized by Summit Artspace on East Market in downtown Akron on the first Saturday of the month.
