Artists of Rubber City's 

28th Annual Juried Show

Juror: Ellen Rudolph, Chief Curator, Akron Art Museum


 “I am extremely impressed with the wide array of artistic impulses represented in Artists of Rubber City. Inventive and skilled use of materials, nuanced expression of ideas and sensitive handling of the tiniest of details are among the aspects of the artwork I particularly admired. The artists' evident openness to sources of inspiration both internal and external, beautiful, broken, imperfect and unexpected--is truly exciting to see.” - Ellen Rudolph, Juror


First Place -  Mark Giangaspero for his pastel portrait “Artificial Identity” 


Second Place - Christopher Darling for his body of work, three digital prints with graphite: “Cumberland Park, 33”, “The Cleveland Orchestra Plays Respighi”, “East Cleveland Bus Stop”


Third place - Melissa Markwald for her work “Van”, an oil on panel portrait


 Honorable mentions: Charles Felzen Johnson, Ibojka M. Toth, James Leslie, John Freiman, Kevin Paul Hudak, and Shannon Fee.
