Women’s Work

“Women’s Work” on display at Summit Artspace

“Women’s Work,” an exhibition of art created by four outstanding, local painters, will be on display at Summit Artspace January 24–February 28.  The featured artists are Barbara Gillette, Linda Hutchinson, Laura Wagner and Linda Tompkin.  The public is invited to a meet-the-artists reception Friday, January 23 from 5-7 pm.

Gillette, who lives in Wadsworth, often incorporates visual commentary on the environment and loss of rural green space in her striking landscapes created in soft pastel.  Award-winning, Kent artist Linda Hutchinson is an accomplished portrait artist, whose expressive paintings and drawings reflect her earlier studies in music, language, poetry, dance and psychology.  Cuyahoga Falls artist Laura Wagner, a young, emerging abstract painter, incorporates mixed media and collage into her work.  Linda Tompkin of Copley Township is a realist painter who works primarily in oils and acrylics and often uses vibrant colors, strong value contrasts and intricately designed shapes into still life paintings.

“It is truly exciting to present a show featuring these outstanding women artists who have such strong talents and diverse aesthetic points of view,” said Jessie Raynor, Akron Area Arts Alliance director.  “It is a great way to start out a new year of exhibitions.”
