Emergent 2017 Opening Reception

Friday, April 21, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Heights Arts presents the second iteration of its well received exhibition, Emergent, which shines a light on artists who have recently graduated from area colleges and universities. First presented in 2015, Emergent 2017 celebrates the strength of the northeast Ohio region as a training ground for the great artists of tomorrow.

This year, the Heights Arts gallery committee selected 12 artists who create in a variety of media from a list of institutions including the Cleveland Institute of Art, Kent State University, the University of Akron, and Baldwin Wallace University.

Represented in Emergent 2017 are: Meghan Calvert, Amber Ford, Jessica Howard, Erin Jesson, Jacob Koestler, Samantha Konet, Mike Lombardy, Nathan Prebonick, Rachel Shelton, Maia Stern, Grace Summanen, and Nikki Woods.

Join us for the opening reception on Friday, April 21 and meet the artists. An accompanying program, Ekphrastacy: Artists Talk + Poets Respond, is slated for Thursday, May 18 at 7 p.m. The exhibition will be on view through Sunday, June 4.
