Alison Alsup Reception in MassMu’s Studio M

The Massillon Museum will host a reception for artist Alison Alsup and her Studio M exhibition, Prairies to Peaks: Biking to Colorado’s Tallest Mountain, on Saturday, March 18, 2023, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The event is free and open to everyone.

 
Prairies to Peaks features detailed watercolor paintings, and pen, ink, and graphite drawings recounting the artist’s 1,000-mile solo bicycle trip from Cleveland to a summer job, where she worked and lived on Mt. Elbert—Colorado’s tallest peak.  Viewers are invited to contemplate women in adventure sports, the beauty within stranger interactions, the country’s magnificent nature, the horrible destruction America has faced due to colonization, and other complexities that are associated with outdoor recreation.
 
Alison Alsup, born in Delaware, Ohio, is currently studying drawing and painting at the Cleveland Institute of Art, having also completed a semester abroad at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Palestine.

 

A MassMusings podcast interview with the artist will be posted at MassillonMuseum.org on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, at noon. The exhibition will continue through April 2, 2023.

 

The Massillon Museum is grateful for operating support from the Ohio Arts Council and ArtsinStark, marketing support from Visit Canton, and the support of the citizens of Massillon. This exhibition was funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

 

Exhibitions can be seen during regular MassMu hours, Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.
