Fresh Art 2010: 6th Annual Juried Show

Fresh Art Winners To Be Announced Friday, April 30

Three artists will be awarded top prizes this Friday, April 30 at the opening of Fresh Art at Summit Artspace Gallery in downtown Akron.  This meet-the-artists reception is free to the public from 5 to 7 pm.  Fresh Art is an annual juried show in which area artists are challenged to stretch their creative muscles by producing new works that reflect novel thinking, original styles and unusual materials.  Summa Foundation sponsored the awards.

The guest judges, married couple Clare Murray-Adams and John T. Adams, selected 79 pieces from 120 entries to display through June 5.   Murray-Adams is an artist and professor at Canton’s Malone University.  Her husband is a painter and sculptor.  They also selected the prize winners.

The exhibition of two and three dimensional art includes all types of materials – paint, ceramics, fabric, photography, metal and mixed media.  In the opinion of Summit Artspace Gallery coordinator Joan Colbert, the entries for this sixth Fresh Art exhibition were the most outstanding she has seen.  “It’s obvious that area artists are taking seriously our challenge to be very creative very,” she said.
