The Mansfield Art Center is very pleased to partner with the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve to present City Artists at Work, 1998 -2018. The Artists Archives of the Western Reserve is a unique archival facility and regional museum that preserves representative bodies of work created by Ohio visual artists and, through ongoing research, exhibition and educational programs, actively documents and promotes this cultural heritage for the benefit of the public.
This exhibition, curated by current AAWR executive director and former CAAW co-chair Mindy Tousley, will be the first in what is hoped will be a continuing partnership between AAWR and the Mansfield Art Center. It brings together over eighty works, in a variety of mediums, by forty of the artists who were involved in the CAAW group over its twenty-year span.
