Art Exhibits

Two Opening Exhibits

When: Fri., Jan. 27 2017

Sharing a roof, the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve (AAWR) and the Sculpture Center host simultaneous opening receptions for their new exhibitions from 5:30 to 8 tonight. AAWR hosts The Electrostatic Man: The Art of Miller Horns (1948-2012), Horns’ first show as an Archived Artist. The show’s title refers to the late Akron artist and community activist’s innovative prints created with a combination of electrostatic technology (Xerox), thermal heat color transfers and lamination. Separating himself from other artists working with copy machines, Horns worked at a large scale, often tiling smaller copies together to create life-size images of people, animals and everyday objects. The Electrostatic Man remains on view through March 18. Meanwhile, the Sculpture Center presents two new exhibitions: Keith Lemley’s Superstructure and Christy Wittmer’s Approaching Softness, both on view through March 17. Wittmer will discuss her work by via satellite link in the Euclid Avenue Gallery at 6:15 p.m., and Lemley will follow with a discussion about his work in the Main Gallery at 7 p.m. Free. (Usmani)
