NEWNOW(tm) 2016 poster

Beginning on September 6th, the NEWNOW™ 2016 will be on view at Cuyahoga Community College’s East Gallery. This regional juried exhibition features the work of 55 artists in a variety of media representing the “Best of the Western Reserve.”

Conceived of in 2014, this year’s NEWNOW™ competition includes 73 pieces chosen by judge Michael J. Beam from a pool of over 450 highly competitive entries. Beam, Curator of Exhibitions & Collections at the Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University, described his selection process as assembling a “cohesive visual narrative of what is, in my opinion, reflective of the Western Reserve collective—embodying a visualization of the spirit of our times.”

Beam goes on to reflect “I consider NEWNOW™ 2016, and other regional exhibitions, a microcosm of current social and cultural inclinations—the emerging artistic Zeitgeist of the NOW. We, as a society, must continue to celebrate our artists’ tenacity for independent thought and their innate ability to reflect these trends through their own artistic endeavors. “

Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony is to be held on Tuesday, September 6th from 6:00-8:30 pm in Tri-C.’s Gallery East, 4250 Richmond Road, Highland Hills, OH 44122. The awards recipients, including Best in Show, will be announced at 7:30 pm and voting for the People’s Choice Award will commence until 7:00 pm.
