The Surreal real @ akron soul train
My show with Akron Soul Train opens Sept. 2 - Oct. 3, 2020. I'll be sharing the gallery with fellow 2020 Artist in Residence, Scott Goss.
Akron Soul Train has extended its exhibitions from four weeks to five in order to accommodate participants. Gallery hours are Wednesdays - Saturdays 11:00-4:00. Akron Soul Train wants to protect your health by requiring everyone to wear a mask and allowing just six people into the gallery at one time. If you would like to view the exhibition with friends and family, AST can accommodate your group of no more than six people with a special time slot. Please contact us to make arrangements. 330-573-0517
Akron Discoveries: A Downtown Quest is a community engagement project that I developed for my month long residency with Akron Soul Train. Created as a fun, participatory event, Akron Discoveries takes inspiration from quests offered in role playing video games. Individuals or families can assume the role of the Hero and explore historic and art-based landmarks across downtown Akron. The mission is to locate the power-up items hidden at each of the six landmarks. Once a power-up item is found, take a selfie with the power-up item and post the image to Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #akrondiscoveries. There will be a bonus reward for those who demonstrate the strength and courage to participate!
Sneak Peek - Coloring book!
I designed a coloring book of recent paintings that I produced during my residency with Akron Soul Train Artist Residency Program. Physical copies will be available at the gallery during the run of my exhibition, The Surreal Real opening Sept. 2 - Oct. 3, 2020.
