Lakemore Gallery Of Fine Arts is a reality after three years of planning and preparation. I am looking for a location to reopen my Barberton gallery, and from there establish a 24/7 virtual gallery online and more brick and mortar venues.


The gallery address is 1500 Canton Rd. Lakemore, Ohio. Facebook will not allow me to edit the address from Barberton to Lakemore. I apologize for any confusion, maybe one day FB will get it together, but I doubt it.


Our Barberton location is closed. Facebook will not allow me to edit the page, and doesn't respond to my messages to do so, so I essentially gave up trying. The new Lakemore location will be our primary operation for the time being.

New location being prepared, Grand opening date and details to be announced.


Facebook won't let me change the name of this page. What a bunch of Kudotz.


Having a difficult time trying to edit the page, change address, etc. Please bear with us for a few days..


I'm going to move the shows we have scheduled until Spring of 2019 so I can finish the new Akronauts album and go play out to promote it. This was a hard decision, but it needs done, and what we have recorded is great. I don't want to do a rush job and put a crappy album out. I am looking for a new spot for the gallery, and want the best experience for artists and patrons (and us) when we do shows. Thank You, Tommy.

NEW POEM: Yuyutsu Sharma's "Dai, Chengdu" published in "On the Verge- Poets of the Palisades III Anthology." The Poet's Press, Pittsburgh, Pa

Dai, Chengdu

How old are you?
She looked up at me and asked,

a girl name Xio Xio
that translated into Nepali

would mean—
Apple Apple!

She came from Chengdu,
the region known, she announced

for apples,
pandas and beautiful elegant woman.

I have been to Nepal,
she added, and spent time

in the mountain
and learnt few words in Nepali.

Her eyes shone like black birds
in the white nest of her singing face.

I looked at her
slender waist and noticed

a gold-spangled ring
with a tiny lotus dangling out of it.

She bent backwards
shaking her long hair

falling like a dark waterfall
on her marble shoulders.

You must be a Dai then,
an elder brother, she said,

I was wondering
how to address you.
