Thu 9/13 @6-8:30pm
The biennial juried art exhibit The NewNow, sponsored by the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve, opens its 2018 edition this week at Gallery East on Tri-C’s eastern campus. Open to northeast Ohio artists in all media, the show was judged by Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center curator Steven Matijcio.
He says, “I attempt to balance personal preferences with a broader hypothesis of work I believe will speak to an audience of many – communicating meanings that bridge a diversity of concerns, while remaining united in their urgency. I was especially struck this year by the dialogue that took place between structure and slippage; between the security we conventionally associate with mass and architectural solidity and a subversive blurring of all that a straight line stands for.”
Come see how that played out in his choices when it opens with a free, public reception Thu 9/12 when his awards will be announced and the people’s choice award voted on. It runs through Wed 10/18.
