Kaleidoscope 2011: The Alliance for Visual Arts

Four Local Visual Arts Groups Display Talents at Summit Artspace

The Alliance for the Visual Arts in Akron, a group representing over 500 local artists from the Akron Society of Artists, Artists of Rubber City, Cuyahoga Valley Art Center and Women’s Art League, will present Kaleidoscope 2011 at Summit Artspace from November 18 through December 31.

Members of the four groups entered artworks in all types of media for this annual juried show.  Cuyahoga Falls artist Susan Mencini and Akron artist Mary Ann Mosyjowski served as show coordinators.

Wadsworth pastel artist Barbara Gillette and Cleveland Heights watercolor artist Robert Raack served as judges selecting the works for display.  They also chose show winners, who will be announced at the meet-the-artists reception Friday, November 18 from 6 to 8 pm.  This event is free and open to the public.

The annual People’s Choice Award, selected by the votes of gallery visitors, will be presented during the First Night® Akron celebration on December 31.  The winner will receive a kaleidoscope created by Akron glass artist Bob Pozarski.
