Taking A Gamble

Way back at the beginning of 2018 I set myself a few quilting goals. One was to have my work accepted in an art show, not just a quilt show. To that end I mounted “Sunset on Main” on a prestretched canvas in hopes that would appeal more to an art show juror. Such a presentation precluded any usual quilt show entries with their “must show your work” rules about quilt backs.

My gamble paid off when that work was accepted into Against The Sky, a juried landscape exhibition coming up at Summit Artspace from October 19 to November 17.

I’ll know more about the other entries after I attend the opening reception this Friday night from 5-8 p.m. From the few I saw when I took in my piece it will be an interesting mixture of media.

So, if you’re planning to be in downtown Akron on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday afternoons, stop by. Summit Artspace at 140 East Market Street is a block from the Akron Art Museum. Specific hours are 12-7 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, and 12-5 p.m. Saturdays. Special Artwalk hours are from 12-9 p.m. on Thursday, November 3.

    Congratulations, Joanna! I look forward to seeing your piece with the rest of the show. Perhaps I had a premonition: I thought of you last Friday when I passed Artspace with my sister en route from the exhibit at the Perkins Mansion to another stop. The yellow in your windows simply glow, as only sunset light can create. Well done!

  9. Congratulations. Your piece is great and I’m guessing there won’t be anything like it in that show. I look forward to hearing more about your experience and the other artworks in the show.
