POE'S GARDEN JURIED ART EXHIBITION Oct. 9 – Nov. 7, 2020 | OPENS OCT. 9, NOON SUMMIT ARTSPACE ON EAST MARKET Edgar Allan Poe—his writings, his mystique, his life and his death—is the inspiration of the Poe's Garden juried show. Summit Artspace often sees the fascination among local artists with the mysterious, the unearthly, fantasy of the unknown and the distortion of the known.

Artist awards will be announced by our juror, artist Andy Tubbesing of Seville, on Summit Artspace social media--Facebook, Twitter and Instagram--starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8.

POE'S GARDEN...A SECRET REALM Back for a second year, Poe’s Garden showcases high quality, local art that leads the imagination to pull back a curtain from the darkness and investigate the unsettling and fantastic places our minds can go. Poe’s Garden is a place where the deliberate, wide-ranging variety of visual art will thrill, astonish, create dread and awaken and provoke the viewer with images, imagined worlds and artistic technique. The accepted work will be the artists' creation of new, mysterious or secret realms or the exploration of past, present or futuristic realities through a creative yet skewed lens. Art will be judged on its power to sustain mystery, leaving the garden gate open to imagination, wonder and even a little fear. Andy has earned a number of awards in Summit Artspace juried shows.
