Minerva's Market Street Art Spot is pleased to announce its first-ever studio clearance sale by means of a Silent Auction starting with a gala opening reception on Friday, May 12, 5-9 p.m.
This show of our eight Resident Artists' work is called "Silent Auction" and will bring a wide and varied variety of artwork to the Front Gallery, but will allow our guests to set the final prices for all of the original artwork.
Over the years, the Art Spot has showcased the work of its Resident Artists as well as 30 to 35 Display Artists from across Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Now the customers will determine the value of the art in the front gallery by signing bid sheets through June 3, 4 p.m. At that time, all bids will be final.
For 76 consecutive months, the Art Spot has held a Featured Artist Opening reception with live music, free food and refreshments.
This month, the acoustic artistry of "Roger Romeo" will bring a variety of blues, jazz and pop music to the Art Spot. This month's sponsor of the opening reception is the Rotary Club of Minerva.
The Art Spot is a collaborative gallery and with the recent addition of four new Resident Artists, the Market Street Art Spot continues to be open for regular business on Fridays from 1-6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
This remarkable show of the studio work of our Resident Artists and Display Artists will continue at the Art Spot through June 3.
As they have done for more than six years, The Art Spot's local volunteers, Resident Artists and the Minerva Rotary Club will provide outstanding food, and refreshments. As always, the reception, music and show are free and open to the public.
In addition to "Silent Auction" in the Front Gallery, the Art Spot will feature throughout the gallery the works of the Art Spot's newest Resident Artists Anna Rather (printmaker, painter), Judi Longacre (painter), Susan Crawford (calligraphy), and Joan Henninger (painter); and long time Resident Artists Michelle Mulligan (painter), Laura Donnelly (potter, painter), Judith Singer (raku potter) and Marty Chapman (wood turner).
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.
