About a week ago, I entered one of my hats in an art show at Summit ArtSpace in Akron. More than 90 pieces from various artists were submitted and 30-some were selected for exhibit in the show. The theme of the show is Fresh Art with Q- something that has been created in the last year or so and the piece had to somehow include the letter “Q,” whether literally or figuratively. The hat I submitted (photographed below) has lots of curly-cues and is most definitely quirky. When I learned that my hat was one of the pieces selected, I was thrilled. But then I learned that it won third place in the show! The show runs through April 13 and gallery hours are Thursdays, 12-9, Friday and Saturday 12-5, and during the April 6 Artwalk from 5 – 9:30.
