The Artists Archives of the Western Reserve (AAWR) in partnership with Cuyahoga Community College is proud to present the NewNow 2022, Northeast Ohio’s premier biannual competitive art exhibition juried by famed artist, art historian, and writer Dr. Amalia K. Amaki from Atlanta, Georgia. Featuring the creations of 68 regional artists, the NewNow, takes the pulse of the current artistic climate, and reflects the experience of living in Northeast Ohio during this pivotal moment in history. This year’s exhibition includes an exciting mix of both established and emerging artists, allowing visitors to view the regional arts community through the fresh perspective of an out-of-town juror. Ranging from paintings to textiles and video installations, “the art in the NewNow 2022 reaches across many borders.” As Amaki describes, “some artists address topics with candid, blunt, and bold approaches, while others adopt more subtle, minimal, or quiet modes of presentation…Either way the exhibition offers food for thought, different views of the world, and the opportunity to gain insight into the interests and curiosities of Northeast Ohio.” An Opening Reception & Awards Ceremony will be held on Thursday September 15, from 6:00pm – 8:30pm. At that time, the winners of 4 Juror’s Awards will be announced, and $1750 in cash prizes will be presented, including a People’s Choice Award, which will be chosen by popular vote during the reception.
