The Gallery at Lakeland honors women artists in March for Women’s History Month

Posted: February 28, 2019

The Gallery at Lakeland presents “Celebrate Women’s History Month, from WOMAN XII…Created by women, of women and about women.” The exhibition runs Feb. 24 through March 29, with an artist reception and awards ceremony slated for Sunday, March 24, at 3:30 p.m. in the Dr. Wayne L. Rodehorst Performing Arts Center. The gallery is located on the first floor of the D-Building on Lakeland’s main campus, at 7700 Clocktower Dr., Kirtland, Ohio, 44094. All shows are free and open to the public.

Every spring now for a dozen years, The Gallery at Lakeland has supported Women’s History Month by producing a special exhibition dedicated to art of women. The show is the brainchild of Mary Urbas, gallery coordinator at Lakeland and the curator of the exhibition. The show features an extensive display of pieces from artists from all over the country. This year, 39 artists are exhibiting their works, with the gallery walls and display cases filled with pieces representing a variety of media, including oil, acrylic, watercolor and gouache painting, drawing and collage, textiles, weaving, jewelry, glass mosaic, bronze sculpture, ceramic sculpture, assemblage art, mixed media, digital painting, digital photography and photography.

In addition, the Lakeland Women’s Center is hosting their annual Women of Achievement Awards event before the gallery reception. The ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. in the Rodehorst Performing Arts Center and is free and open to the public.
