Poe's Garden of Mystery at Summit Artspace

Summit Artspace on East Market is channeling Edgar Allan Poe to bring mystery and Gothic fascination to a juried art exhibit and writing competition, “Poe’s Garden,” that will showcase local creatives and their love for the unearthly.

Poe’s Garden opens with a free reception with the visual artists and writers on Friday, Oct. 18, 5-8 p.m., in the main gallery at Summit Artspace on East Market, 140 East Market St., Akron. Winners of both the visual arts and the literary competitions will be announced at 7 p.m. There will be readings of the winning poetry and short stories after the announcement.

POE’S GARDEN WINNERS TO BE PUBLISHED!

The first-place artwork will be featured in the November issue of The Devil Strip, an Akron communications hub in print and online that connects neighborhoods and serves as a cultural guide to understanding the city and a springboard for contributing to civic life. The winner of the literary competition will be featured in The Devil Strip’s online edition.

The visual arts show, which runs until Nov. 9 in the main gallery, is free and open to the public. It will feature 45 pieces by 33 local artists.
