Artist Nancy Palmeri’s exhibition “It’s My Last Day on Earth” is currently on view in the projects gallery through this Friday.

A note from the artist, “I am interested in connecting the concept and the making of an object/picture. I do my work by hand, and the signature of that process must be present in each piece that I create. Raw emotion, experiences, and responses motivate much of my work.”

In March 2020, Gallery Director Arnold Tunstall was eager to bring an exhibition titled Passion & Joy to the Emily Davis Gallery at the University of Akron Myers School of Art. Then the pandemic swept in, bringing the exhibition to a screeching halt, and robbed many of both passion and joy in the pr...

03/28/2022

Passion Works Studio and Planet Joy Studio work hard to encourage connection, purpose, and belonging through collaborative art-making. Patty Mitchell, Executive Director of Passion Works, founded the organization in 1998 to “Amplify what we love. For any human being, there is comfort when welcomed into the fold for who we are and what we like, and not just having attention directed to what our perceived disabilities might be or other life challenges…We intend to build our best lives together.”

Inspired by the work of Passion Works, Planet Joy opened its doors in Medina, Ohio, in June of 2018. The studio allows artists to develop their talents, enabling artists to share their work with the world empowering individuals with developmental differences to be equal and valuable.

It’s impossible not to feel filled with happiness with all the smiling faces displayed throughout our Passion and Joy exhibition. These “Joyful Girls” from @planetjoystudio are a great example of how the studio’s artists explore imagination and creativity through their art.

Passion Flowers, “The Official Flower of Athens Ohio”, are constructed of up-cycled aluminum printing plates from our local newspaper. Every flower is collaboratively hand-painted by Passion Works artists with and without developmental differences. Each sculpture is as unique as the people who make them! These Passion Flowers were one of the first initiatives of Passion Works and have contributed inspiration and have raised over $2M for Passion Works to continue their cause.
