Anyone who visited Summit Artspace or Artists of Rubber City/the BOX gallery in the last two decades surely crossed paths with Frances Ryan, who died in February. She was an avid patron of both visual and performing arts. Maybe she greeted you at the door or you chatted with her at opening receptions. Maybe you remember her as the volunteer or fellow audience member who always dressed for the occasion in colorful ensembles. For those who knew her, Fran will be remembered as a good friend whose love for the arts and animals was bountiful.

For more than thirty years Frances lived in a spacious Highland Square apartment with plant filled windows that sparkled with colorful glass. The interior, filled with books and artwork, was a visual delight.

Fran would be delighted to know that the intention of this sale is to find new owners and homes for artwork from her collection while benefiting two arts organizations that she supported.

All proceeds will be donated to Artists of Rubber City and Summit Artspace in Fran’s memory.

Cash and checks are appreciated; credit cards are accepted.

Artist and art educator Dara Harper of #AkronOH took an honorable mention with "What I Remember," an acrylic on canvas, in the Artists of Rubber City Juried Regional Art Exhibition. Stop by #SummitArtspace on East Market to walk through the socially-distanced gallery environments with new art. Open til 5. Free, timed tickets at: summitartspace.org/20472/tickets. There are some time slots open so stop by but you can also reserve upcoming weekend tickets! Check in at artist studios while you are in the building. Dara's Artist Statement: Personal change that leads to growth is always a difficult road. Ironically in my most vulnerable moments of fighting inevitable change, the Akron I know is also changing. The places of familiarity no longer look the same. A house in my childhood neighborhood had the most beautiful and thriving garden....30 years ago. Recently I took a walk in the neighborhood and to my shock the garden was absolutely unrecognizable. Full grown trees, thistles towering over the corner and void of color. I began to investigate this visual change in various color palettes and spatial movement. Building upon my memories and experiences I began to paint symbols of change juxtaposed in a balance of layered abstraction. #SACreativeCommunity Artists of Rubber City Juried Regional Art Exhibition Artists of Rubber City

Art to Brave the Waiting! #SummitArtspace ROUND-UP CALLS FOR ART Updated 2020 Exhibit Show Schedule coming soon! See details, submit at summitartspace.org/call-for-artists-2/ #SACreativeCommUNITY YOU-Topia Submit art by April 20, 2020, midnight AGES : 15+ Years Artists are constantly responding to the state of the world and creating pertinent work that shapes perspectives and impacts the future. A utopia is defined as an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect. For this virtual exhibition, artists are prompted to respond to current events and create work that imagines a better future. YOU-Topia Youth Challenge AGES: 0-14 Years While kids are spending time at home, they can imagine and create their own utopia artwork. A utopia is an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect. This could look different to every child or younger teen. Maybe it’s really colorful and bright; maybe it’s based off a book or a movie; a perfect world where it's summer all year long or being able to fly. Discarded and Rediscovered Submit art by April 6, 2020, midnight. Juried Art Exhibition at Summit Artspace on Tusc. As a consumerist society that is constantly disposing and discarding, what does it mean to rediscover and repurpose? For this exhibition, artists are challenged to repurpose, reclaim, and rediscover discarded materials through the production of strong and compelling artwork. The Art of Y Submit art by April 27, 2020, midnight. Juried Art Exhibition at Summit Artspace on Tusc. Summit Artspace is collaborating with the Y to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Akron Area YMCA. For this exhibition we invite artists to create pieces that include the letter “Y” in any way whether it is literal, hidden or abstract. Winning pieces will be invited to be on display at the Y’s Gala on August 22, 2020. Cash prizes. MOTION // EMOTION Submit art by April 6, 2020, midnight. Juried photography exhibit asks artist to respond to either of the universal ideas of motion or emotion. Motion and emotion are two concepts that affect our everyday lives: we are constantly moving and are constantly feeling. While motion is often external, emotion manifests itself internally. AoRC Regional Juried Art Exhibit Submit art by April 20, 2020, midnight. The Artists of Rubber City are inviting artists in Summit and surrounding counties to submit original artworks in a diverse array of visual media. Cash prizes.
