From 5 to 8 p.m., this Saturday, Nov. 29, Summit Artspaces’ third floor Box Gallery hosts a book launch in conjunction with its latest exhibition, Present Tense: Contemporary Art in Ohio.

Organizers received more than 300 entries from a state-wide open call to artists. The book features all 80 works selected for the show and includes 84 full-color pages showcasing works by local artists in painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry and even performance.

“The rationale for the project was to provide a showcase for contemporary art being produced in Ohio in a way that would garner wider exposure than a physical gallery exhibition would,” says Summit Artspace’s building manager Don Parsisson. “For less than the price of any one included artwork, a viewer can own images of the entire show.”

Copies of the book will be available for $25 at the event, which is otherwise free and open to the public.
