We are thrilled to introduce our four Fall Show artists this week, leading up to the Online Show Viewing that will LAUNCH THIS SATURDAY.��First up, hailing from Warren, Ohio, Doug Meyer found a unique path to art and was eventually featured in the NY Times! We are thrilled to be exhibiting his impressive furniture line, Rustbelt Rebirth. Doug’s pieces are truly sculptures, created from colored sheets of metal pulled from old desks, shelving, and more and flattened. Can’t wait for you to see actual product pics online on Saturday! (Call to order - may also view/purchase in the gallery)

Artists among us. We couldn’t be prouder of one of our own, Matt Miller. You may recognize him from working here at the gallery but he’s currently spending most of his days, when not curling ribbons, high in the air painting this impressive mural on the side of Hazel Tree Design Studio. It has been so refreshing to see all of the public art popping up around the city in recent years, and so much of it can be attributed to the efforts of Karen Starr, thank you for making our city even more vibrant 😘 Matt, we can’t wait to see your final creation ✨ Be sure to wave to him as you drive past on Market Street (you probably remember the building from its last mural with the tree roots that spelled Akron), near @The Diamond Grille, and/or you can go have lunch and watch him paint, more details on Hazel Tree’s page. 🎨 LAST but definitely not least, if you’d like to support the arts more, especially this super talented man, you can buy Matt’s prints on our website:

Since we kicked things off early, start shopping NOW and stock up for the holidays! Currently we have lots of stars, snowmen, Santa and more but if you'd like multiples it might take 3-5 days...in another month or so it could take multiple weeks to get them in. If the quantity you want isn't currently available online, email Linn: [email protected] and she will gladly help you.

PLUS we will soon be releasing preorder info for Don AND Leandra's new 2020 ornaments. If you'd like to be added to that list, please email Melanie: [email protected]

Now I need to decide where I'll put a star tree in my house because I'm obsessed with the beauty that Amy created here at the gallery - it will be super fun to add to it year after year!

We can’t believe we’re saying this...our Safety First Holiday Shopping Season is starting NOW ❄️ Sure, it’s three months before December holidays, but as we all know this year is different in all ways, especially since we can’t safely host our traditional two-day open house in November.🎄 We’re encouraging you to get your “Ho! Ho! Ho!” On early this year. By shopping early, you’ll keep your spirits high during these challenging days and talk about stress relieving - shopping leisurely, letting us do your gift-wrapping free helps avoid last-minute crowds and chaos. 🎅 But first and most important, early holiday shopping keeps you, family and friends healthy and able to enjoy a joyous season. 🎊 Shop EARLY! SHOP OPTEN! Shop Safe!

On this day that honors American workers, we are bursting with gratitude for each person that works for us, day in and day out; and the over 500 makers whose handmade works are featured in our galleries. Without each of them we wouldn’t be here, especially in these insane times, and without each of you, we couldn’t keep our giant sun gate open, let alone win awards. Thank you all, for your hard work, in the gallery and for our Akron community. #laborday #beaconsbest #bestartgallery

Don had his first Zoom session ever today as The Rotary Club of Akron invited him to speak in their virtual meeting. We hope to share the recording eventually so you can hear more about the tales behind many of his public sculptures and his love for the people of #Akron. #dondrumm #behindthescenes #akronrotary

REAL TALK TIME ⏰ You guys are incredible! Within hours of launching the on-line sale section yesterday at least one of everything had sold 🤯 We are working as quickly as we possibly can to keep adding more. There is a new crop up now (and we found a couple more in the depths of the foundry of some things that sold out yesterday). Truth be told I planned to post about one of Don’s aluminum flowers on a base for today’s sale announcement but before I had a chance to refresh my browser they sold out, so instead here is a necklace that I’m OBSESSED with ❤️ Keep checking the site (Link below to the SALE section). And if you see something you love (or even like) buy it, because it probably won’t be there if you blink. Thanks so much for you support and patience during this super weird time for the world and for us!

And away we go! ✨AUGUST SALE IS NOW ON-LINE ✨ Link below will take you to our new sale section and this is just the beginning, but you will truly want to act fast as some of these items are VERY RARE, using some metals that Don will never use again like silver and bronze, plus work by many other artists. We will be adding to the section nearly every day so check back often. Not everything in the on-line sale section is available in the gallery and vice versa. Have fun, I know I plan on stocking up (some of the prices are crazy low!)

Staff Artist Spotlight 🌟 Kathryn not only helps you with your purchases at The Different Drummer, but she’s also a talented weaver. We just added her collection to our online shop and not only do they show a diverse palette, they also featured some recycled materials like vintage dress fabric. Grab one before I buy them all 😉

Happy Birthday Don, hope you are having a GOOD day. Take care. Ann W.

Absolutely Love Mr & Mrs Drumm! The Studio has so many Artists work. Outstanding Artists! Enjoy visiting!
Can't wait to see the pictures from the glass mosaics class :) 😺
I am a fan of Don Drumm's work. I have a candlestick that reminds me of his work and would like to know if it's one of his. Thank you.
Thank you so much for the beautiful wall at the new Bath Elementary School...it is absolutely gorgeous!
I'm really hoping that I'll be able to make it to the sale.
Will the gallery be open during the Akron Arts Expo? On Sunday too?
Birthday cheer to you Don Drumm. From an admiring metalsmith. Enjoy the day!
Look what we found in Seaside, Florida
