ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Summerfair Cincinnati, a non-profit 501(c) 3 with offices in Anderson Township, will host its annual exhibit featuring the artwork of students from five area colleges and universities. Fifteen local art students have been selected to display their artwork in Summerfair Cincinnati’s 2012 Emerging Artist Exhibition on display Feb. 10 through Feb. 29.
The Emerging Artist Exhibition will feature students who were nominated by their professors and juried into the exhibit. They represent the next generation of artists to emerge in the local arts community.
“The art these students submit is outstanding,” said Sharon Strubbe, Executive Director of Summerfair Cincinnati. “This exhibit is a wonderful opportunity for the students to showcase their best work, and for the community to see the young talent that Cincinnati has to offer.”
The exhibition will showcase a diverse collection of art. “Art enthusiasts can expect to see everything from photography and sculptures to fabric design, printmaking and much more.” said Strubbe.
The exhibition will open to the public on Friday, Feb. 10 during the artist opening reception from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The reception is free to attend and open to the public. The artists will be available to answer questions about their artwork.
