Masked Arts

“It feels like we’ve been in COVID forever.” Robb Hankins, president and CEO of ArtsinStark, has been operating in pandemic mode for so long that the back end of the proverbial tunnel seems to have disappeared. But he remains optimistic, even when the light at the front end of that passageway remains a bit dim.

Canton Artists League Show

This month, dozens of local artists will have their best pieces up for display in one place. March marks the return of the biennial Canton Artists League show held at the Canton Museum of Art. Members of the league—who range from professional to amateur—will showcase their work in the upper galleries of the museum. The art in the Visions 2019 exhibit will be judged and then awarded during a reception on March 3.

Art for Health and Healing

Art therapist Amy Hope provided an informative program on “Art for Health and Healing” at the Canton Museum of Art in April. Sponsored by Canton Fine Arts Associates, the program offered insights and examples of how art therapy can help heal various personal conditions, including veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder. The event included an interactive demonstration featuring art therapy, a Q&A session and a catered lunch.
