When Artists Attack

Akron's art colony dukes it out in annual competition.


A fierce face-off between pencils and paint goes down tonight with the judging of Kaleidoscope 2007, an art show on display in Akron until early next year. Tonight, the fifth-annual event will host a panel of critics, who'll size up work from more than 100 artists competing in several categories, from acrylics and collages to pastels and watercolors. The winner of the best-in-show division takes home a glass kaleidoscope. "I love shows where all kinds of art mingle and get along in the gallery," says artist Linda Hutchinson. "We are a varied and robust group." Kaleidoscope 2007 is on display from 6 to 8 tonight and from noon to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, until January 5 at Summit Artspace Gallery, 140 East Market Street in Akron. Admission is free. Call 330-376-8480 or visit
Fri., Nov. 16, 6-8 p.m.; Thursdays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: Nov. 16. Continues through Jan. 5, 2007
