When one thinks about the concept of surface, one might think about something as being superficial, or limited to what is perceivable on the surface of an object. But the word surface can be interpreted in a multitude of ways: To provide something with a surface. To apply a surface to something. To rise to the surface. To come out of hiding. For information or facts to become known. To make information or facts known. To appear or to be found. The word surface also implies that there is something beneath or contained by the surface itself. The three artists in this exhibition approach surface in varied and unique ways.

Grace Summanen, Elizabeth Emery, and Nicole Schneider are three Northeast Ohio based artists who approach abstraction in similar ways, and whose work is connected both formally and conceptually. These artists rely heavily on intuition, chance, and improvisation as driving forces when determining form in the final works. Each also approaches materials in a similar way through the use of found, discarded, and mass-produced objects in combination with traditional art materials. This juxtapositioning of materials is further enhanced by the interplay of differing colors, textures, and surface qualities. These pairings of materials draw attention to harmonious and alternately discordant formal and conceptual relationships. The resulting works display a playful, experimental attitude towards art-making.
