(North Canton, OH – Aug. 2, 2019) – Paintings by Mike Locus will be featured in a showing titled “Abstract Expressionism in the 21st Century” through Sept. 20 in the Stark State College gallery on the second floor of the Student Center.
Locus renewed a childhood interest in art in the late 90’s as a reprieve from a high-tech career.
“My art centers on a belief in art as an outlet to freely express,” he said. “My art is not meant to merely entertain, but to bring the viewer to a place where the infinity of spirit resides.”
The public is invited to attend a reception for the artist from 6-7:30 p.m. Sept. 11 in S201 of the Student Center. Stark State is located at 6200 Frank Ave. NW in North Canton.
All art is available for purchase with 25 percent of the proceeds going to the College’s aesthetics fund for the purchase of artwork for the campus.
The gallery is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. For additional information about the show, call 330-494-6170, ext. 4733 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
