When: Fri., June 5 2015
It’s the first Friday of June, and that means it’s time for Collinwood’s Walk All Over Waterloo monthly art walk. From 6 to 10 p.m., Waterloo Arts hosts a special reception for the opening of the 2015 Waterloo Arts Fest Juried Exhibition. For the first time, Waterloo Arts has combined its annual National Juried Exhibition with its Members Exhibition. Only 35 works by 33 artists were accepted from 231 submissions by 113 artists. This year’s juror was Thereasa Bembnister, Associate Curator at the Akron Art Museum, who has written for numerous publications including Cleveland Scene Magazine. FAdditionally, Loren Naji’s Satellite Gallery invites the public to participate in an interactive art project. Stop by between 6 and 9 p.m. to help stuff an 8 foot custom-built Lake Erie Perch sculpture with plastic trash collected by Adopt-A-Beach volunteers at Edgewater and Euclid Beach this spring. The project is a collaborative effort between Naji and Waterloo-based artist Ali Lukacsy. There’s plenty more to see. Stop by early to wander throughout the district. All events are free.
