Art that Tells a Story

Ask Fredlee Votaw about a particular piece of art he has created and he will tell you its story. “Doc Votaw” creates drawings, paintings and assemblages inspired by stories that have in some way touched his life. On display now through April 5th at the Market Street Art Spot in Minerva, are many of these stories. The exhibit opened on Friday, March 14th, with a great crowd of support. Light refreshments were served along with lively music performed by Beth Gray and Dennis Kempthorne. MSAS expresses sincere gratitude to the Village of Minerva for sponsoring the event.

“Diary Art”

Market Street Art Spot is excited to announce our Featured Artist for March, Dr. Fredlee Votaw. Over the past 45 years, Votaw has participated in solo, group and competitive shows, garnering numerous awards on local, state and national levels. His work has been written about and published in several arts journals and magazines.

3 marSays the artist:

“…over the last five decades in Stark County I have explored oils, watercolors, multimedia, drawing, photography and computer graphics. Since my retirement I have focused on oils and multimedia and am excited about exploring different surfaces to create on.  I describe my works as contemporary “Diary Art”, responses to life, the world and my emotions. Instead of writing these responses down, as one would do in a diary, I choose to release them visually, in oils or multimedia creations.”

Plan now to join us on Friday, March 15, from 5 – 9 pm for our monthly opening reception and see for yourself the stirring “diary art” of Dr. Fredlee Votaw.
