Canton Museum of Art opened a wonderful exhibit featuring the art of Gary Spinosa on Wednesday May 3. I was lucky enough to attend the exhibit opening and meet the artist. Gary Spinosa was extremely kind and humble when speaking about his work. He said he is inspired by nature and life events. A lot of his work reminded me of ancient Mayan and Aztec temples, with tall stairs leading up to an alter. Ancient Egypt and relics are a basis for much of his creation.
If you are looking for a wonderful evening and a way to support local arts be sure to check out Avatars: Relics of the Future, open through July 23. CMA did a beautiful job displaying these unique pieces and you are sure to leave feeling as if you saw something sacred, mystical, and though provoking.
