This past week has been challenging for our city. We respect the Akron creative community's need to process emotions related to the death of Jayland Walker. Out of regard for those who are grieving and peacefully assembling downtown, we are postponing our summer exhibitions opening celebration, originally planned for this Friday.

Summit Artspace will remain open to the public on Friday, July 8 on a shortened schedule from noon-5 p.m, and for regular hours on Saturday, July 9 from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. There is new art to see in the building, and we hope we can serve as a place for Akronites to seek comfort and respite this weekend.

A new date for the summer exhibitions celebration will be announced soon, and we look forward to gathering at that time. Thank you for your continued support of local artists, Summit Artspace, and our neighboring organizations downtown.

04/13/2022

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.

Happy New Year from Artists of Rubber City and The BOX Gallery!

It is exciting to begin 2020 with a fresh outlook and exciting changes for AoRC. What was the ‘small box’ is now the (capitalized) BOX Gallery. The transformation will be complete when Susie Lilley opens her solo show of photographs: The Queen City Parks.

Stop in Friday, January 10, 5 - 8 p.m., for the opening reception!
