Artworks are by participants of Community Support Services’ art therapy program, all of whom experience mental illness. Community Support Services is committed to providing hope and healthcare for those of Summit County struggling with persistent mental illnesses, along with building a community where mental health and physical health are treated equally. - Intersections Gallery "Imagine Infinite: Where Wonder Meets Transcendence" | Group Exhibition Featuring artists from Door 2 Art Studio in Hudson— Adriana Caso, Amanda Du Plooy, Darlene Hess, Daniel Hughes, Sara Hughes, Ben McRae, Michele Moncrief, Meaghan Reed, and Mike Seng— this interactive exhibition will engage all the senses to awaken the possibilities of living in a world of transcendence through beauty and wonder. The outcome of such an awakening can be the restoration of communication and relationships, more empathy for each other, and overall awareness. - Forum Gallery "Blurred Lines" | Group Exhibition Since Abstract Expressionism became popular in the mid-20th century, men have largely received recognition for the movement even though women have always, and continue to, play an important part in shaping the style. Blurred Lines surveys a grouping of intergenerational women artists in Northeast Ohio who create abstract paintings in their own unique styles. Participating artists include Megan Dardis, Care Hanson, Dara Harper, Mary Ann Flynn-Fouse, and Diana Rice. - Horizon Gallery "Anywhere" | Lizzi Aronhalt This solo exhibition is a collection of documented memories and memory processes through architectural and cityscape-based paintings. The series serves as a personal reflection and response to the concept of time, along with the common human processes of forgetting and remembering, and the way those human experiences connect to the places in our lives. Lizzi Aronhalt has been a resident of Summit Artspace for over five years, located in studio 308. -Wall to Wall Bradley Hart | Nick Lee | Shannon Welsh | Janean Ray Wall-to-Wall is a program that showcases the work of Summit Artspace resident artists throughout the building’s hallways. - BOX Gallery Resident Organization Artists of Rubber City (AoRC) is presenting a solo exhibition by Shirley Ende-Saxe, Water Intervals.
