Summit Artspace’s panel discussions have been gaining in popularity as community members come to appreciate the forum as a place to learn more about the skill and talent of local artists.

Parallax, contemporary works from local artists, runs until Aug. 18, 2018 at Summit Artspace on East Market, 140 E. Market St., Akron.

Summit Artspace’s main gallery is open Thursdays and Fridays, noon to 7 p.m.; and Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m.  Additional hours are for 3rd THURSDAY, Aug. 16, 4-7 p.m. and on Aug. 4, 5-9 p.m., for Artwalk.

The works in Parallax reflect a globally-influenced, culturally-diverse and technologically- advancing world. Artists combine materials, methods, concepts and subjects that challenge boundaries and lack a uniform, organizing principle, ideology or “-ism”.  To see the winners, click here.

Summit Artspaces connection to the regional art event, Parallax converges on the parallax effect which suggests that a work of art is more than the image seen head on. The artist has imbued dimension even in a flat surface as the eye of the viewer absorbs the line, color and form from different angles. The show, new for 2018, focuses on contemporary works in 2D and 3D across all mediums.
