Akron Museum of Art, 1 S. High Street. Akron, 330.376.9185, “Andrea Modica: Extended Moments.”   6:30 PM The Akron Art Museum’s Knight Purchase Prize was established 25 years ago to acquire a body of work by a significant photographer. In that time, it has honored a diverse range of photographers from photojournalists to cutting-edge experimentalists.  The 2015 winner was Philadelphia-based Andrea Modica , whose work revolves around high-degree-of-difficulty processes that are becoming increasing valued in the era of digital ease and profligacy. She shoots with an 8 x 10 view camera and makes her prints using the platinum palladium contact printing process, which makes creating her photos time-consuming. That increases her engagement with her subject matter, which includes landscapes, teenage best friends and rural families.  Her work is on display now at the Akron Art Museum in Andrea Modica: Extended Moments. And she’ll be at the museum to present the Fred and Laura Ruth Bidwell Lecture to talk about her work. It’s free and open to the public.


Waterloo Arts, 15605 Waterloo Rd., Cleveland, 216.692.9500  “Walk all Over Waterloo.”  Including Fandom 216.
Bay Arts, 28795 Lake Road, Bay Village, OH “Destruction of Form + Timothy Joyce: Facing Forward.”  Opening 7-9PM.  Last fall, painter John Carlson and photographer and Cleveland Print Room director Shari Wilkins put together a show called Destruction of Form which showed at the Cleveland Print Room. In it, each artist used vernacular or found photos — a passion of Shari’s — as the basis for the work they created. Carlson’s paintings riffed on the photos while Wilkins used the photos as her basic material.
