“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.

None of Your Beeswax?

It COULD be yours!  t cook3

The beeswax works (otherwise known as encaustics) of Therese Cook will be featured at the Market Street Art Spot now through October 5th.

” I am a self-taught artist. Six years ago, I attended an encaustic workshop and have been hooked on the medium ever since. The encaustic process is challenging, exhilarating, inspiring and exciting, making a painting that can be looked into as well as looked at. I love the luminosity of the wax and vivid colors.”

Artist’s reception: Friday, September 13th, from 5 to 9pm.  Music by Roger Romeo and light refreshments. Sponsored by Summit Glove of Minerva.
