"52 Weeks/52 Works" Exhibition

November 9 - 30
Opening Reception: Friday, November 9, 5-8 p.m.
Baldwin Wallace University, in collaboration with Academy Graphic Communication (AGC-the Creative Advantage), presents "52 Works/52 Weeks," a major exhibition featuring over 60 Northeast Ohio artists.

Spearheaded by Paul Jacklitch, professor of art at BW, and Candice Champion, vice-president of AGC, "52 Weeks/52 Works" showcases an array of painting, sculpture, assemblage, ceramics, metalwork, jewelry, glass, fiber arts and photography by professional and student artists, constituting a visual testimony to the distinctive caliber of technical virtuosity and creative energy in the region.

The exhibition anticipates AGC’s publication of a high-quality desk calendar featuring a photograph of one work for each week and 22 additional works in a "notes" section. Champion, a BW graduate in studio art, first initiated the calendar project, now an annual publication, in 2001. Her call for entries consistently elicits well over 100 submissions from which she selects the works for inclusion in the calendar and, this year, for exhibition at BW’s Fawick Gallery. "52 Works/52 Weeks" is a veritable celebration of the visual arts in Northeast Ohio.
