Art at Main Library Through April 30:
The 21st Annual Barbara Luton Art Show
The Library could not hold its annual juried art show without a professional
who selects the artwork to be included. This year’s 21st Annual Barbara Luton
Art Show was juried by Thea Spittle, curatorial assistant at the Museum of
Contemporary Art Cleveland and member of the curatorial team for the
upcoming CAN Triennial, which showcases Northeast Ohio art and opens in
the summer of 2021.
Spittle earned a Master of Arts from the Center for Curatorial Studies at
Bard College. For her Master’s project, she collaborated
with interdisciplinary artist Autumn Knight to exhibit
four video works, as well as a corresponding publication
to highlight Knight’s creative writing practice. During the
summer of 2018, she participated in SOMA Summer, an
art residency program in Mexico City, where she worked
with 30 international artists to create a publication about
Before beginning her graduate program, Spittle
worked as a produce clerk at a grocery store in Seattle,
Washington, as an admissions counselor at the Cleveland
Institute of Art, and founded the sunroom, an art project
space in her parents’ Cleveland Heights home. At the sunroom she showcased
installations by local and regional artists including Jerry Birchfield, Lauren
Yeager, Elizabeth Emery, Nikki Woods, Annmarie Suglio, and Liz Roberts +
Elena Harvey Collins.
