Featured Exhibitions:

✦ Persistence of Vision | Kasumi
In partnership with Collective Arts Network
Experience a retrospective of artworks from internationally acclaimed artist Kasumi, showcasing a wide range of media including collage, printmaking, painting, installation, and digital videos. Kasumi's work draws on 60s-era film and Japanese popular culture to explore cultural norms through repetition and patterns.

✦ Overdose Awareness Exhibition
In partnership with Summit County Public Health
This powerful exhibition honors Overdose Awareness Day on August 31, featuring works by artists from Summit and neighboring counties. The pieces explore personal experiences with overdose and addiction, commemorate lost loved ones, and serve as a call to end the stigma around overdose.✦ Women’s Art League Member Exhibition

✦ Diagrams for Inner Space | Steven Mastroianni
Dive into an immersive world of large-scale photograms and drawings that blend symbols, surrealism, and abstraction. Mastroianni's works evoke mysterious maps and otherworldly landscapes, creating a dream-like atmosphere.

✦ Stitched Editions: Walking Through the Sacred Garden | Melih Meric
