Downtown Canton’s museumlike Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography is a mecca for lovers of fine-art photography. The walls of this spacious one-time Cadillac dealership at 520 Cleveland Ave. NW are lined with more than 225 original prints from many of the most celebrated photographers in history.
From Feb. 8 through April 26, the Canton Museum of Art will host rare and exotic visual splendor from Japan. “Kimono As Art: The Landscapes of Itchiku Kubota” is a landmark exhibition of oversized kimono that, when displayed together form a panoramic landscape.
There is something uniquely rewarding about owning a piece of original artwork. A one-of-a-kind painting or piece of sculpture can become the focus of a room. It can lend texture and presence to a living space, or workplace, in a way that a manufactured product cannot. And unlike at a museum, the art can be examined and touched.
