Anderson Creative Wants YOU

April 21, 2010

Anderson Creative, located in nearby Canton Ohio, showcases the work of those at the cusp of their creative life, seeking out ‘young’ artists and those whose voices have not yet been heard.

Visit their website for more information.

Here is their latest call for entires.  Sounds like they’re talking about you:

We believe in:

– Creativity: Originality, novelty and freshness will be championed within these walls.

– Character: We desire to work with artists who are as trustworthy, self-aware, reliable, ethical and considerate as they are artistically gifted.

– Relevance: Art inspires, provokes thought and evokes emotion, but only when experienced firsthand. We seek to make art important to people, featuring work that both appeals to and challenges a wide spectrum of individuals.

– Social Consciousness: Art also calls attention to social issues and responsibly promotes change. We seek to make people important to art, featuring work with humanitarian concerns.

– Civic-Mindedness: Supported and encouraged by our neighbors, we give back, pursuing the betterment of downtown canton and beyond.

– Community: Exposure to new perspectives and methods grows us, so we foster an environment where dialogue, collaboration and mutual sharpening can occur.

What we DO
We create, cultivate and host innovative artwork that catalyzes fellow artists and expands the audience for art in Stark County.

What we ENVISION
We seek to become an incubator for the development of local artists, formation of unique collaborations and new modes of expression, in order to:

– Obtain local, state and national recognition of creative work occurring in canton,

– Expand the definition of what creativity is and the various forms in which it can occur, and

– Break paradigms about who art is for, while encouraging a livelier exchange between the viewer and the artwork.

The INTERIOR spaces
– Anderson Creative, located at 331 cleveland avenue northwest, in the heart of the Downtown Canton Arts District, comprises three distinct spaces.

– The gallery (1350 square feet) is a completely renovated showroom, dedicated to exhibiting new artwork on the first friday of every month. Playing host to solo exhibits, group shows, unique collaborations and traveling installations, the gallery seeks out work that is immersive and experiential, beckoning viewers to be pulled into a world that invites deeper engagement than a quick walk-through.

– The studio (500 square feet) is an annex off the main gallery, earmarked for the development of new artists and art forms. Available as classroom space for art teachers and students, an exhibition venue for debut shows and the home of Anderson Creative’s art-themed parties, this intimate space is a hub of constant activity.

– Both the gallery and the studio are rental spaces, available for parties, receptions, fundraisers, ceremonies, classes, book groups, kids’ events, meetings and more. If interested, inquire about rental costs and policies.

– The shop (1000 square feet) is the artistic home of fabricator and inventor, Kevin Anderson. Kevin thrives on experimenting with a variety of methods and media, taking raw materials and concocting something new. An impressive problem solver, many of his creations arise from a dissatisfaction with current options, inspiring him to make new tools, furniture or solutions that work the way he wants them to. Kevin is available to tackle anything you need solved, but has special expertise in:

– Building furniture, both utilitarian and artistic
– Molding and casting (plaster, concrete, resins and fiberglass)
– Prototyping (product design, industrial design, model-building)
– Mixed media sculpture
