The 'Mask Affair' is what's hot in downtown Canton at Journey Art Gallery. This is my second year providing visual stimulation for the event, but don't think my work closely resembles the feeling of actually being there to witness it first-hand. The work here is worth the trip to Journey. So what exactly is the Mask Affair?
Su Nimon, the gallery owner, puts together the biggest fundraiser of the year known as the Mask Affair. She invites artist to participate by giving them a mask and allows them to come up with most creative idea to display in the gallery. No restrictions. Each mask is $75 and the proceeds this year go to The Children's Network of Stark County.
The event this year is even bigger. Four walls now occupy the gallery and the level of craftsmanship is exceptional. I bought two of them last year and I already see numerous mask I want.
I recommend you stop down on 4th street in downtown Canton and see the show before it ends November 14th. It's a beautiful space and Su and Jeffery always greet you with a warm welcome.
