SPRING/SUMMER EXHIBITIONS ON-VIEW NOW THROUGH JULY 24th:
"Witness to Wartime: The Painted Diary of Takuichi Fujii" introduces an artist whose work opens a window to historical events, issues, and ideas far greater than the individual. Takuichi Fujii (1891-1964) bore witness to his life in America and, most especially, to his experience during World War II.
"Abandoned America: Everything Must Pass" was started to capture the mesmerizing beauty and lost history of the various derelict buildings dotting our country's landscape. First and foremost, photographer Matthew Christopher's work, is an attempt to retain the history and essence of neglected sites before (and after) they are gone forever.
"Asian Voices: From the CMA Collection" - Asian artists have long sought fresh new opportunities in the United States, arriving as refugees, economic migrants, students, or professionals. In celebration of these artists, CMA presents “Asian Voices,” an exhibit of work by Asian artists from our collection whose voices speak to the fluidity of an individual’s sense of place and self.
"Visions 2022: Artwork from the Canton Artists League" includes a wide variety of media and subject matter with total 117 artworks in the exhibit. The Canton Artists League consists of members from all over Stark County who are artists, photographers, and craftsman who meet to help further their creativity through a shared bond of talent and imagination.
