The Artists Archives of the Western Reserve (AAWR) is proud to present NewNow 2018, Northeast Ohio’s premier biannual competitive art exhibition. This years multi-media show was juried by Steven Matijcio, the curator of the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center, one of the oldest contemporary art institutions in the United States. The exhibition will be held in Tri-C’s beautiful 3,000 sq. ft. Gallery East, 4250 Richmond Road, Highland Hills, OH 44122 beginning with an opening reception on Thursday, September 13th, 6-8:30pm.
2018 marks the third incarnation for the NewNow, and this year’s exhibition was the most competitive to date, with a total of 55 works selected from nearly 550 entries made by 172 individual artists.
The NewNow is set apart from the throng of other regional juried art exhibitions, through its consistent use of a highly qualified, non-regional juror. “The NewNow offers local artists a unique opportunity to get their work in front of fresh eyes and seeks to rise above the local art politics which can often lead to the same artists being selected for shows repeatedly.” explains AAWR Executive Director Mindy Tousley.
