2020 Annual Members Exhibition
March 27 @ 5:30 pm - May 1 @ 7:30 pm
Dates: Extended Run, Friday, March 27 – TBA
On March 27, the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve (AAWR) welcomes the return of its Annual Members Exhibition, featuring work by over one hundred of its member artists, hung salon-style in the main gallery. For over a decade, this all-media show has brought together some of Northeast Ohio’s finest creators. This year, the tradition’s been updated – we’re going digital!
In lieu of an opening reception, a video tour with Chief Curator and Executive Director Mindy Tousley will be released on Friday, March 27th. Join the watch party on Facebook at 6:00pm for live comments from Tousley, AAWR staff and a spirited array of exhibiting artists! For those that can’t attend, the video will also be posted on Instagram and artistsarchives.org for later viewing
Though the gallery is currently closed to the public, exhibition highlights will be released tri-weekly via Facebook and email, allowing viewers to virtually pour over every piece from the comfort of their couch. In support of the artists in these difficult times, work will be digitally available for sale.
This year, viewers may vote for their favorite piece online! To cast a vote & join Ohio’s creative community, subscribe to AAWR’s newsletter HERE. At the end of the show, a ballot will be sent to the safety of your inbox. The top 4 artists will receive awards and cash prizes- winners will be digitally announced!
To accommodate for social distancing, AAWR’s Annual Members Exhibition will be extended to a future date and all programming, including the Annual Members Meeting and the Closing Reception have been cancelled. Pleased stay tuned for further details!
In support of the artists in these difficult times, artwork will be digitally available for sale. To buy, email email@example.com with “purchase” as the subject line, and the name of the artist in the body of the email, along with your contact info (including phone number).
