BAYarts celebrates 10 years of exhibitions
Since 2006, BAYarts has hosted over 200 exhibitions featuring hundreds of artists from across the region in two galleries: the Sullivan Family Gallery in the Fuller House and the Dianne Boldman Education Gallery in the John Huntington House.
Under the discerning eyes of BAYarts directors and countless guest curators, the Sullivan Gallery has gained a reputation as a world-class showcase for professional, collaborative and experimental exhibits. The Boldman Gallery, named for the beloved watercolor instructor, highlights emerging artists as well as BAYarts faculty and students. Because of the diversity of the talent and topics showcased in these exhibits, opening nights are always a unique mix of visitors from across northeast Ohio.
BAYarts will celebrate 10 years by with a showcase in the Sullivan Gallery of 10 artists who represent the diversity of BAYarts gallery exhibitions including Douglas Max Utter, Liz Maugans, Edward Beyer, Judy Takacs, George Kocar, Marsha Sweet, John W. Carlson, Mary Deutschman, Jeff Yost and Judith Brandon. Many of the artists have been on the BAYarts faculty or facilitated workshops. All continue to be contributing members of BAYarts' artistic community.
Opening in the Boldman Gallery will be "Sarah Sedwick: The Color of Light," paintings that celebrate the simple beauty of the everyday.
Both opening receptions are Friday, July 8, 7-9 p.m., with music by Back Bay featuring local musicians Chris Pritchart and David Speaker. The exhibits will be up until Aug. 6. For detailed information, visit bayarts.net.
Nancy Heaton is the Executive Director of BAYarts.
