Join Heights Arts for the opening reception of Emergent 2024 and Spotlight: Destiny Moore. 

Emergent, since its debut in 2015, has showcased some of northeast Ohio's best up and coming artists. Emerging artists include painter Jules Ahern who uses found objects to reckon with home memories, oil painter Erjon Hajnaj who invokes dramatic tones with Renaissance painting styles, mixed-media artist Kasey Kania whose work is centered on the natural world, Sylvia Munodawafa who draws inspiration from the rich cultural heritage of Zimbabwe to explore identity and spirituality through her paintings and sculptures, self-taught oil painter Grace Nestor-Louie who creates playful scenes of nature in vivid colors, visual artist DeAnne Smith who explores mico-patterns with acrylic paintings, and painter Mar’Cess Stubbs who explores family histories and identity through traditional techniques and the human figure.

In her spotlight, Destiny Moore presents a collection of black and white street photography that captures the beauty in ordinary people and city life. Moore’s work, whether the subject is a protest or a snowy bridge, finds beauty in both quiet and loud moments — reminding us to do the same.
