Whether to Weather

Juried Art Exhibition

Summit Artspace on E. Market - Main Gallery

February 21 - March 28


The weather is something we all have in common and cannot escape.  It is often the topic of conversations with friends and strangers.  We praise the rain when we need it and curse it when it changes our plans.  In reality we are at the mercy of weather.  From beautiful sunsets with peculiar cloud formations to the disastrous destruction it can leave in its wake, the weather affects and inspires us humans on a daily basis.

So let’s get real.  This is a love-hate relationship. The technical term for this type of relationship is “ambivalent relationship”. Our relationship with weather is complicated.  Because we are “stuck” in a relationship with weather like we obviously are, there is likely to be ambivalence present.    We get along sometimes (when the weather fits our plans and expectations) but we also harbor a few (or many) underlying negative feelings toward it.  The good news is that research has shown that love-hate relationships, while associated with things like stress and high blood pressure, are also beneficial.  They make us more creative in problem solving and better with decision making.

The awe and power of our relationship with the weather has been captured by artists through their lenses, their pencils, paints, etc. This exhibition will explore and showcase our love-hate relationship with weather and inspires artists to be creative in how they represent this  “Whether to Weather” relationship.

Boschian: Beautifully Bizarre

Feb 21 – Mar 28, 2020

Media: 2D, 3D; all media types except video

Summit Artspace on E. Market -ThreeG Gallery (Formerly The BOX)

CALL DESCRIPTION

Hieronymus Bosch was a Renaissance painter of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. His work utilizes striking and sometimes seemingly surreal qualities, often depicting tales of morality. Intense scenes by Bosch encompass a sense of humor, sensuality, and grotesque quality. His masterpiece, The Garden of Earthly Delights, teems with fantastical landscapes of disturbing anthropomorphic beings composed in vivid jewel tones.

Over 500 years later, Bosch is still a source of inspiration for contemporary artists. Boschian, of or relating to Hieronymus Bosch, is used to describe everything from fine art to high fashion. Boschian: Beautifully Bizarre, invites artists from Summit, Portage, Cuyahoga, Medina, and Stark to submit high-quality art inspired by Bosch.

Boschian: Beautifully Bizarre will be a display of curiosities with an appreciation for the surreal, beautiful, and bizarre. Accepted work will be contemporary Boschian creations with the sublime ability to instill both terror and delight. The visual arts component of the exhibition will be juried by Kat Wentz, Collection Manager of the art collection, Hieronymus.

Kat Wentz manages a collection of art inspired by the Renaissance master, Hieronymus Bosch. Kat’s experience includes co-curating the Hieronymus collection for the recent exhibition Stranger Beings: Hieronymus Objects & Other Curiosities at the Emily Davis Gallery and managing the pop-up gallery Pish Posh that was on view in downtown Akron in the summer of 2018. Hieronymus has actively loaned pieces from the collection to museums and institutions for exhibitions including Akron Art Museum’s Gross Anatomies and Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose.

Motion // Emotion

Juried Art Exhibition
Summit Artspace on E. Market - Three G Gallery
April 10 - May 9, 2020
 

Motion and emotion are two concepts that affect our everyday lives: we are constantly moving and are constantly feeling. Motion is a wide-ranging idea, referring to, perhaps, ways to get from Point A to Point B, the toss of a ball, or the inevitable passing of time. Motion could remind you of a childhood memory spent swinging on the playground, the rotation of the Earth around the Sun, the busyness of the holiday season, or tree branches moving in the wind. Regardless of what it looks like to you, it is undeniable that we live in a universe of unending motion.

While motion is often external, emotion manifests itself internally. Emotion is a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one's circumstances, mood, or relationships with others. Examples range from excitement to sorrow, embarrassment to fear, anger to surprise. Emotions can lead us to make decisions and make change, and allow us to form deep relationships.

For this exhibition, photographers are asked to respond to either of these universal ideas, motion or emotion. You are encouraged to think critically about these concepts and respond in a way that reflects your interpretation. In addition to your photographs, we ask that you please include which concept you are embodying and how in your artist statement.
 

 “I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique." - Anne Geddes
