Summit Artspace in Akron’s Historic Art District downtown is mounting a new show that takes a long hard look at Akron, touting that it captures the “passion, pride, hope, despair and the everyday in Akron’s neighborhoods.”
The exhibit, called 24, features two dozen Akron locales, with photos juried by Akron-based photojournalist and fine arts photographer Shane Wynn.
“Exhibit photographs may reflect what makes the neighborhood distinctive or what life is like as a resident of that area. They will be intimate messages from the artist capturing the passion, pride, hope or despair of a place bounded by city streets or bisected by highways,” says Summit Artspace executive director Kamelia Fisher.
In addition, there will be a display of Wynn’s work, titled 24 Years of Photographing Akron, in the side gallery.
The show opens with an artists reception on Fri 4/13; winners will be announced at 7pm. It’s free and open to the public. The show runs through Sat 5/12.
