Fun in the Sun

Celebrate Summer with Cari Miller at City|Art Gallery

Akron, OH: Akron artist/photographer Cari Miller is inviting art and music lovers to have some “fun in the sun” during the opening reception of her work at City|Art Gallery, Falls River Square, downtown Cuyahoga Falls on Friday, July 24, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Miller will be showing a mix of 25+ original acrylic paintings, mirrors, photographs and prints that all celebrate the joys of summer. The reception will feature local guitarist/singer/songwriter Dave Hammer performing from 6 to 7 as well as light refreshments. July 24 is also the first night of the Festa Italiana, which will feature music, food and games of its own.

“Between the festivals, fountains, boat rides and car shows, Falls River Square offers ways to have fun all summer long,” says Miller. “My work at City|Art Gallery – bright, heavily textured sun face paintings, seaside photos and summer-themed mirrors – is designed to complement that.”

The exhibit runs Thursday, July 23 through Monday, Aug. 3. Hours are Wednesday-Friday 3-8 p.m. and Saturdays 12-8 p.m. or by appointment.

Miller has been working for the last 20 years in different facets of the arts in Northeast Ohio. She is currently showing her work at the Log Cabin Gallery in Peninsula, weekends through July 19.

Art Quilts

At the Peninsula Art Academy ~
Art Quilt Magic: An Introduction with Connie Bloom, Saturday July 11, at 3pm, Wednesday, July 15, at 6:30, and again on Friday, July 17, at 11am. Please attend any one program. Join studio quilt artist and former Beacon Journal columnist Connie Bloom, who will explain the transformations quilts have made since great grandma's heydays and unfurl a trunk show of gorgeous quilts she has stitched. Art quilts hang on the wall, not on a bed, and look like paintings but are made of fabric and embellishments, such as buttons, beads and cording. They can be hand stitched or sewn on a sewing machine, which is Connie's preference, and be abstract or representational. Anything that can be drawn or painted can be made into an art quilt -- flowers, pets, landscapes, people
