NORWALK — The “Visions Revealed” art exhibit had its final day Friday, ending with “ASK Evening at the Arts!” The wrap-up featured children from Fisher-Titus’s dance and performance camp, as well as other performances — including a heartfelt rendition of “The Rainbow Connection.”
The exhibition showed a range of pieces, many of which were created by artists from Artists Open Studio, Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center, residents of Gaymont Nursing Home, as well as other local artists.
There was something for everyone at the gallery and artists showed off their best pieces from the last year or so, featuring pottery, paintings, needlework and even crochet.
Many of the pieces sold during the weekend, including 20 pieces from Artists Open Studio.
“I thought it went very well,” said AOS Managing Director Lynda Stoneham. “We had several sales for our artists and really enjoyed having local artists join the show.”
The artists from AOS receive a commission from each of their works that sell, and the rest of the profit goes to cover studio supplies.
AOS also sold pre-made coasters, jewelry and notecards from its studio during the event, which is also sold on its website.
When they aren’t displaying pieces in the Ernsthausen gallery, the AOS artists move their work to many different locations, with paintings on display at the Huron County Recorder’s office, Willard Hospital and even an office building in Columbus.
“We’re busy all the time, besides the show. That’s our annual event, but we’re constantly moving,” Stoneham said.
