Deleted Scenes


brucebitmeadimage

The Art Junction was thrilled to host Bruce Bitmead in the summer of 2012 for his exhibit Deleted Scenes.  Bruce Philip Bitmead was born in Buffalo, New York in 1963 and graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1983, starting to paint in earnest that same year. He has been exhibiting his works steadily since 1987, mainly in Illinois, Pennsylvania and New York, with solo shows in California and London, England. Bitmead spent much of the 80’s and 90’s employed as a graphic designer and illustrator in Chicago, but returned to Buffalo in 1998, where he concentrates on his personal work. Bitmead is no stranger to North Central Ohio, having served as an artist in residence in the 90’s at Black River Local Schools and Willard City Schools. “Since 1983, I have alternately concentrated on drawing, painting and sculpture in both representational and abstract manners. The skills I learn in one discipline inform the others, which has enabled me to slowly but surely develop a cohesive artistic vision over the past 29 years. I am glad for the opportunity to gather various types of work and present them in one exhibit at the Art Junction.”

Artists’ Open Studio


DSCN9496

The Art Junction was thrilled to exhibit work from the Artists’ Open Studio in the winter of 2012.  Artists’ Open Studio, Inc. was created for adults with developmental disabilities from Huron County. However, it is a place for aspiring artists of all abilities who enjoy sharing their creative spirits among other local artists. Each person works independently, yet with the support and encouragement from the group and AOS staff. Artists come from many walks of life with various skills to our uninstructed meetings. Painting & ceramic studio artists gather weekly at Christie Lane in Norwalk.

Artists’ Open Studio sponsors an annual Art Exhibit – traditionally held the 3rd Friday of June at the Ernsthausen Performing Arts Center Gallery, 350 Shady Lane Dr, Norwalk. Artwork may be purchased at our shows or from our displays at Christie Lane with profits going directly to the artists. AOS also creates products for sale to purchase art supplies for the artists from Christie Lane. Purchases of handmade ceramic tile, recycled glass jewelry, note cards, stationary, and custom printing help to support AOS.
