The Animal Kingdom Opens at Market Street Art Spot

Minerva’s Market Street Art Spot, celebrated its fifth anniversary recently and this month will hold its 63nd consecutive gala opening reception on Friday, April 8, 2016 from 5 to 9pm as we celebrate “ The Animal Kingdom”, a juried group show based on the theme of the animal world.

The Art Spot has invited artists from throughout Northeast Ohio to submit work on the theme of the Animal Kingdom and we will have over 40 pieces of new work to show and sell. Among the artists who will have work at the gallery are Steve Shonk, Sean Johnson, Lori Perry, Cheri Bell, Patricia Harper, Anna Rather, Donald Jeffrey, Judi Longacre and the Art Spot’s resident artists, Michelle Mulligan, Judie Singer, Marty Chapman and Laura Donnelly.

The Art Spot at 217 North Market Street, Minerva, is a collaborative gallery, and every monthly 2nd Friday for 63 consecutive months, the Spot has celebrated completely new work of area artists with an opening reception featuring free refreshments and live music. This month, Rock, Salt and Nails, an acoustic folk music group based in Alliance, will provide live musical entertainment.

This remarkable show of works from the Animal Kingdom will continue at the Art Spot through May 7, 2016.

As they have done for more than five years, The Art Spot’s local volunteers and Resident Artists will provide outstanding food, and refreshments.  As always, the reception, music and show are free and open to the public thanks to this month’s generous sponsor, the Village of Minerva.

In addition to the featured Resident Artists Michelle Mulligan, Laura Donnelly, Judith Singer and Marty Chapman, Market Street Art Spot’s more than 30 Display Artists will have new works on exhibit and for sale.

The Market Street art Spot is a collaborating partner with Arts in Stark and Carroll County Arts, the Village of Minerva, Minerva Local Schools and the Minerva Area Chamber of Commerce.
