Visual Art Showcase Mark Keffer aroundKent Kent Ohio

Visual Art Showcase 20

Visual art in Northeast Ohio is made up of a wide variety of approaches, subjects and materials, which is not unexpected, seeing that it reflects the state of art nationally, even globally. Unlike periods in the past, where there was a dominant movement, such as Abstract Expressionism or Pop Art, we’re currently in an era of ‘pluralism,’ where no overriding thematic direction seems to take precedent over another. (Maybe it’s too close to discern in the moment it takes place?) This lack of conforming influence can be seen as an exciting and healthy state of affairs, because it provides a greater sense of freedom in art that can lead to more unpredictable results. It can also present a challenge for artists to find a distinct and meaningful voice when so much seems possible, but so much of the art of the past still echoes in our minds.
