SUMMIT COUNTY – The Summit County Art Forum is unveiling a new exhibit at the Summit County Commons that showcases the work of 14 local artists. (e)Motion kicks off with a free opening at 4 p.m., Sunday, May 22, in the Art Forum display space, located on the building’s upper level, adjacent to the Summit County Library.
“The ‘(e)Motion’ theme is purposefully vague – we left it to the artists’ own interpretations,” Program Assistant Leslie Walker said. “In a broad sense, the exhibit speaks to inspiration we derive from movement and the emotions associated with that kinetic energy. We ended up with an eclectic and interesting group of artists and works coming together for this show.”
(e)Motion will be on display through early September. Sunday’s exhibit opening is free to the public, and featured artists will be present to discuss their work. The event will include a performance by the Alpine Dance Academy, showcasing movement arts. Light refreshments will be served, and all ages are welcome.
Among the featured artists is Summit High School graduating senior Ernesto Valderamma, the recipient of the 2016 Art Forum Scholarship. He plans to pursue a degree in interior design at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. He describes his work as “sketchy pop art – drawing that’s not really defined.”
Other artists featured in (e)motion include Bill Linfield, Christina Davis, Christian Tai Leach, Bruce Spinney, Daniel McVey, Matt Lit, Kia Neill, Adolph Zimmerman, Marco Montanari, Cecelia Eidemiller, Jeremy “Jerms” Green and David Gonzalez.
