Akron Art Prize, Sept 6-Oct 4

I’m delighted that my collage, “Ghost Ranch”, will be part of the Akron Art Prize competition!

“Ghost Ranch” is a collage I made earlier this year. To see photos of how it came together, go to Ghost Ranch.

Akron Arts Prize is an exciting exhibit for this area, and a bit different than exhibits you’ll typically see here.

The show is a people’s choice type award, meaning that visitors to the show vote on the artworks they like. The artwork with the most votes, wins.

And it’s a serious competition: more than 160 entries in painting, sculpture, glass, ceramic, and lots of other media.

The winner takes home $5,000; runners up get $1,000.
Entries are displayed at locations around Akron:
  • Zeber-Martell Studio (43 Furnace St.)
  • Akron Glass Works (106 N. Main St.)
  • The Nightlight (30 N. High St.)
  • Palladian Palette (30 N. High St.)
  • Summit Artspace Gallery (140 E. Market St.)
To vote, visit one of the locations or download the Akron Art Prize smartphone app.

Voting begins September 6 and continues until the awards ceremony on October 4. If you’re in the area, please take a few minutes to explore the entries and vote for your favorite.
