Who is Up Front Art Space?

Up Front Art Space is owned and managed by two Kent women, Kay and Mystye, who both love art and the northeast Ohio creative community. Kay is a professional photographer who has been working in the retail framing and art restoration and recovery industries for many years. As an expert in digital photo repair and materials handling, you can rest assured your art is in capable and good hands! Mystye is a professional academic editor, entrepreneur, manager, curator, bookkeeper and all around boss. She oversees the day to day operations and without her, none of this would be possible.

You can learn about Up Front Art Space and everything we do by heading over to UpFrontArtSpace.com/About-Us!

Taking today to figure out what inspires me, for my next series of paintings!
I am excited to announce that my artwork has also been accepted for the Holiday Art Fair @ Mansfield Art Center in the upcoming weeks!
I will also be @ Up Front Art Space, for Artist's Sunday on Nov. 27th!

I just thought I should share a little life update for those who may want to know. The original plan was for me to work more and take on more responsibility at Up Front Art Space. So let me start by saying, I absolutely LOVE Mystye and Kay and will continue to work with them and host classes whenever I can. But there are several factors that were telling to STAHHP--SLOW DOWN! 1. Being there at the gallery, among all the inspiring artwork from talented artists, I started to feel a neglect to my own creative itch. I have promised myself that I will develop my own style and make art for myself. 2. I need to take better care of my mental and physical health. I have had type 1 diabetes since age 8 and with that has come the onset of issues-- retinopathy of both eyes, chronic kidney disease, and just a general increase in fatigue. What complicates this more for me is mental health. I do not take care of myself as much as I should because of severe ADHD, anxiety, PTSD, & depression. I have promised myself to make more of an effort in taking care of myself. 3. My kids. Life is going super fast. Especially when I consider that my time may be shorter than the average healthy person.

So there's my life update in a nutshell, and I'll end this post with some gratitude. Thanks to all of you who have supported and continue to support by coming to classes, commissioning art, and with collaborative art projects that I have with Kimmy! (We are looking for more gigs 😃) Thank you to my beautiful, amazing, friends and my ride-or-die husband Mike, who, no matter how crazy life gets, are still there.
My earrings are out! Go check them out at Up Front Art Space!

Did you know SMFPL now has an original illustration on a city traffic box? 🐯🎨 🚦

Our Graphic Design Coordinator Sue Kirchgessner has been at it again: This time, she drew inspiration from our 2021 Summer Reading Program tiger mascot to create the art wrapped around the traffic box at the corner of Kent Road and Orchard Drive, across from Indian Trail Elementary School.

The tiger joins Spike the turtle, a bird, and a butterfly in pouncing onto some good books.

"It turned out exactly how I hoped it would," Sue said, thanks in part to Kay Phelps at Up Front Art Space in Cuyahoga Falls, who facilitated the process of transferring the illustration from Sue's computer onto the traffic box.

Sue said she hopes residents who see the box will be inspired to look for books that excite them — and remember the library if they ever need help finding one. After all, if there's a book for this tiger, there's a book for everyone.

All nineteen new traffic box art prints, including Sue's, are on display here in the library lobby. Ready-to-frame 8×10 prints signed by the artists can be purchased for $25 from StowOhio.RecDesk.com. 100% of the proceeds will fund art scholarships.

Our Club is donating two 'baskets' to our annual Ohio District Kiwanis Convention being held this weekend, in Wooster.

There is a 'basket room' full of donations from Clubs, Divisions, and Individuals - and these are sold via silent auction to raise funds for the Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation.

We are PROUD to represent CUYAHOGA FALLS!!

Our basket contains:
1 t-shirt from The Social Dept.
2 candles and 1 bar of soap from Hope Soap Ohio (1 of which was graciously donated to our Club, THANK YOU!)
1 Ohio mug purchased from R E V E R I E
3 verities of spreads from NOSH Butters

Our other item is a unique piece of art we purchased at Up Front Art Space! Up Front also graciously donated 2 coasters that we included in the basket from Ohio Kiwanis Division 16.

We're including a flyer with all these businesses logo's with the basket(s) for our fellow Kiwanian's to support our great local small businesses!
