A piano as you have probably never seen it. ESL teacher, artist and writer Kathleen D. Gallagher of #AkronOH deconstructed a 19th century piano and created "Dimenuendo." The title aptly describes what has happened--the instrument's former "voice" is now greatly decreased in its new state for the found objects show, Discarded and Rediscovered, open for in-person visits at #SummitArtspace on Tusc in #BarbertonOH. Open today, 12-5 and runs on weekends until Sept. 5.

You'll need a free, timed ticket for entry into the building where you'll also find some artists studios open. Feedback from visitors has been positive about their social distancing experience! To learn more about the show, see all of the winners, get an idea of our social distancing accommodations and finally to register: summitartspace.org/20482/discarded-rediscovered.

Around DT Barberton and in an artsy mood? Stop by to check open times! #SACreativeCommunity

Kathleen's Artist Statement: My assemblage art always carries a theme of voiced and voiceless. In this case, it is the guts of an 1800 year old piano that my son in law almost discarded but gave me to create something new. I wanted to preserve the pieces and parts that used to sing and display reverently its inner and outer beauty that was once heard and now can only be seen. Yet, when the light hits the keys, the shadows from the sharp keys makes it seem as if it can still be played.

Micah's Artist Statement: An image captured on a hot, hazy, deliriously beautiful morning in Cuba. City life was just starting to buzz as people headed to work and school. The vintage lens I used on my Fuji digital camera interpreted the intense morning light as a glowing halo around everything in the foreground. That’s how it felt there, fuzzy, intangible and disorienting, like a dream.

Juror: Tim Fitzwater of Fitzwater Photography!

See this wrinkle in time that catches artist Jacqui Sukie in relay mode and on her way to taking third place in the Motion // Emotion Juried Photography Exhibition in its VERY LAST WEEKEND at #SummitArtspace on East Market in #AkronOH. Jacqui's collaborative photo is entitled, "Just Run." Hours: Today, 12-7; Sat. 12-5. You'll need a free, timed ticket for entry into the building where you'll also find some artists studios open.

Jacqui's Artist Statement - Emotion: This piece is a collaboration; it was originally taken on September 30, 2005 by my husband, and depicts my first experience with participating in the Akron Marathon. I photographed the original picture and digitally enhanced it to show the emotion of that moment. The people behind me are blurred out, because no one else existed in my world at that time. When my relay team member handed off to me, I asked what I should do and she bellowed “Just run!” The emotion of her words are etched on her face, as well as my euphoria at starting something that has since become a large part of my life.

A tale as old as time..."Tristan and Isolde et al (disappearing)" by Roger Benedetti of #KentOH took an honorable mention in the 2020 Artists of Rubber City Juried Regional Art Exhibition in its VERY LAST WEEKEND at #SummitArtspace on East Market.

Hours: Today, 12-7; Sat. 12-5. You'll need a free, timed ticket for entry into the building where you'll also find some artists studios open. Feedback from visitors has been positive about their social distancing experience! To learn more about the show, see all of the winners, get an idea of our social distancing accommodations and finally to register: summitartspace.org/20463/artists-of-rubber-city-regional. #SACreativeCommunity

Roger's Artist Statement: Tristan and Isolde could also very well be: Troilus and Cressida Paris and Helen Romeo and Juliet Cupid and Psyche Archie and Veronica (or Betty) Fred and Wilma Superman and Lois Lane Actually the figures in the drawing are Charles Atlas posed as a mid 20th century American Colossus of Rhodes offering hope to every 90 pound weakling and Bettie Page offering something else. Were they just icons of 1950s kitsch-pop, archetypes, personifications of femininity/masculinity/sexuality or simply formulations of something imagined and are now disappearing?

You need to see the details of "Little Wings" by Corbett Lee Teter of #TallmadgeOH in the Discarded and Rediscovered art show open today, 5-8 pm, at #SummitArtspace on Tusc in #BarbertonOH. Show runs until Sept. 5. Hours: Fri, 5-8; Sat. 12-5. You'll need a free, timed ticket for entry into the building where you'll also find some artists studios open. Feedback from visitors has been positive about their social distancing experience! To learn more about the show, see all of the winners, get an idea of our social distancing accommodations and finally to register: summitartspace.org/20482/discarded-rediscovered. #SACreativeCommunity

Corbett's Artist Statement: Found objects have always possessed an innate beauty for me. The correct tree root, a rusted piece of metal or the fragmented remnant of a space reclaimed by time. Little Wing is the culmination of several found and repurposed objects inspired by a art show featuring addiction as the theme.

The materials are derived from a variety of places. Tile, wood, nails, twine along with scrap steel turnings are all common items found in construction and manufacturing. My employment creates an opportunity to reclaim many discarded and "scrap" items whose value is deemed unworthy of note. These discarded raw materials are never given the glory and praise that are found in a finished product. It is in Little Wing that these scraps have been redeemed and been given purpose. A second chance at a new life, a better purpose than could have ever been originally intended.

Free, in-person gallery visits at #SummitArtspace on Tusc in #BarbertonOH this weekend to see "Untitled 1" by Killian Reed in the Discarded and Rediscovered Juried Art Exhibition! The canvas and oil paint on a cut wood pallet was awarded an honorable mention by juror Gwen Waight. Show runs until Sept. 5. Hours: Fri, 5-8; Sat. 12-5. You'll need a free, timed ticket for entry into the building where you'll also find some artists studios open. Feedback from visitors has been positive about their social distancing experience!

Killian's Artist Statment: Majoring under painting and drawing as a third year student at The University of Akron, Myers School of Art. Killian Reed struggles with Lupus, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, daily chronic migraines and high functioning autism from a young age. Exploring a variety of materials at their disposal exploring a chaotic, childish and processed approach to creating life. Life beyond the sphinx riddle; an extension beyond our will. Life by a bell unrung; what’s done is done. Life to enhance life; unbiased among biased eyes. Life set by no rules; rules govern by others law. Life as a means to an end; simple in nature. This painting introduces strips of excess canvas, unusable for fuller canvases. Soaked in containers of oil paint, by means of an unconventional approach to painting. Stretched on recovered construction pallets; cut to working size.

All fun! #SACreativeCommunity

Diane's Artist Statement: In my art I have focused on the house as a subject for many years and I am still surprised and am able to find inspiration continually from focusing on the house. For me the idea of motion meant that either my subject was moving or I was moving. In this photo I was moving in a drive-by and although not a new concept I felt that it fit the subject of the show “Motion”.

Hope's Artist Statement: Two young friends daydreaming together. Floating in a place of bright optimism where they can be at peace. Mountains in the distance with a cascade of rain that never touches the two girls illustrate the magic and vastness of the experience and represent the high points in the distance/ hopeful future, as they exist in a place where flowers grow without rainy day.
