Sista Act

Women artists pick up brushes and cameras for new show.

Cleveland art
New work by nine black female artists will be unveiled at tonight’s opening reception for Summit Artspace’s STAR: Sistas Thrive Art Revolution exhibit. The 20-piece show features photos, prints, and sculptures by local artists Caressa Matthews, Christine Morrow, and Robin Sallie. Additionally, Shani Richards contributes rap-inspired jewelry, and Magalie Foster shows off paintings accented with black-eyed peas (no, not Fergie; the vegetable).

The pieces were handpicked by curator Ericka Abram, who moved to Akron from Los Angeles four years ago. She’s been scouting the city since last fall for a spot to open the Scott Gallery of Black Life -- which will showcase African American art, history, and culture.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: May 11. Continues through June 16
