On March 27, the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve (AAWR) welcomed the return of its 2020 Annual Members Exhibition, featuring work by over one hundred of its member artists, hung salon-style in the main gallery. For over a decade, this all-media show has brought together some of Northeast Ohio’s finest creators.

Though our doors are currently closed, we’ve been busy- and the entire 2020 Annual Members Exhibition is now available online!

Visit artistsarchives.org to enjoy a dynamic mosaic of 106 works by NE Ohio artists, including painting, print making, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, photography, mixed media assemblage and more. The digital gallery changes with each viewing, so visit often for a creative pick-me-up. Just click on any piece to cruise the detailed images!

Viewers have traditionally voted for their favorite work in the Member’s show… and this year is no exception. Voting will be done online! At the end of the exhibition, a ballot will be sent to AAWR’s mailing list. The 4 most popular artists will receive awards and cash prizes which will be presented (you guessed it) on Facebook Live! To join our mailing list & receive a ballot, visit http://www.artistsarchives.org/publication…/aawr-newsletter/

Weekly exhibition highlights will be shared via social and email to help you find your favorite work. These digital exhibition spotlights feature views from AAWR’s Main Gallery and links to learn more about exhibiting artists!

Artwork will be sold online to help support Ohio’s creative community. See something you like? email info@artistsarchives.org

If it becomes safe to do so, we hope to allow limited or by appointment access to the physical gallery space. We promise to keep you posted as things develop! until then, enjoy the digital show! http://www.artistsarchives.org/event/2020-annual-members-exhibition/
