The Canton Artist League has created the exhibition, Caught Off Guard: A Candid View, for the Massillon Museum’s Studio M from August 11 through September 17, 2017. Canton Artists League members were invited to create work that captures an unexpected moment, suggests a narrative with an unknown beginning or end, or includes an unlikely pairing of elements.
