Creative Couples to Show Work at Summit Artspace May 1-June 13                                                                       

“pARTners,” an exhibition of art created by three outstanding artist-couples will be on display at Summit Artspace May 1 through June 13.  Featured artists are Thompson and Frances Lehnert of Kent, Steve Levey and Debra DeGregorio of Akron and Charles Basham and Julie Friedman of Medina.  The public is invited to a free meet-the-artists reception Friday, May 1 from 5-7 pm.

“It will be interesting to have works by these creative couples displayed side-by-side, so we can see if their lives together influence their art or not,” said Joan Colbert, gallery coordinator.

The Lehnerts and Basham and Friedman are long-established artists with national reputations.  Levey, a BFA graduate of the University of Akron, and DeGregorio, a BFA graduate of Kent State University, are young, emerging artists who have garnered local respect for their talents.

Also on display in the Summit Artspace hall gallery will be Boys and Girls Club Portraits by photographer Laura Ruth Bidwell of Peninsula.
