Lakewood, Ohio —Beck Center for the Arts has a new visual arts exhibition, “Budding to Blossoming,” which provides an opportunity for Beck Center students to display their submitted pieces of artwork, some of which are available for purchase at Customer Service–but also the public attendees exploring these pieces.
This annual opportunity provides students the chance to learn the discipline and processes involved in creating and submitting their art to an art gallery for exhibit. This year’s event features 42 students and 95 works. Also new this year, there are four group projects from Beck Center off-site programs in the Lakewood public schools.
Entries in all mediums were accepted from any Beck Center student from our youngest artists just beginning their journey, to accomplished adults and advanced artists promoting their work for sale.
“This exhibition really shows what our local artists and young people are most passionate about today in 2022. There is a kaleidoscope of subjects – from graceful botanical watercolors, whimsical character mashups from our young cartooning students, to commentary on the world around us here in Cleveland and abroad,” says Jessica McGrath, assistant director of education, who also oversees Visual Arts Education. “This is a unique window into the creative minds of artists as they experiment with new concepts, techniques, and mediums.”
The art is displayed at the Jean Bulicek Galleria on the first floor of the main building on the campus in Lakewood, or view the art pieces digitally after May 1 on the Beck Center Facebook Album.
The program is made possible by the The Gallery Group, a supporter of Beck Center, raising funds for student scholarships.
This exhibition is free, open to the public, and appropriate for all ages.
