Featuring Local ArtisTS


featuring North Canton artist Irene Tobias Rodriguez  We will also be showing the works of East Canton artist Tom Kilpatrick and Jon Wilson a self-taught artist from Louisville who were to be featured in the March show we cancelled due to COVID 19. Umbrella Jewelry by Louisville’s Kimberly Gursky is also on display. We will follow the health recommendations of the State of Ohio relating to spacing and wearing of masks. Masks are requested but not required.
Irene Tobias Rodriquez was born in Cleveland spending her childhood in Wickliffe, Ohio. She graduated from Bowling Green State University in 1964, with a degree in Art Education. She continued with post graduate studies through Hiram Collage and the University of California, Berkeley California. Irene taught art for many years in public schools of Jefferson, Mentor and Middlefield. She has also taught at the Canton Museum of Art and the North Canton Public Library. She has worked with a variety of media focusing mainly on acrylic paints and art quilts covering various subjects. Her work has won numerous awards. Most of her work is representational but sometimes works in abstracts. Irene developed a technique she calls “Puzzle Paintings” by cutting a board into puzzle type pieces and reassembles the pieces to create a completed, slightly distorted looking work.

Tom Kilpatrick’s interest in art was cultivated as a child by his mother who enjoyed many art mediums including oil painting and watercolors, settling into china painting in her later years. He grew up in Lorain County Ohio and finished his education with a BFA in graphic design from Kent State University in 1970.
At KSU Tom was introduced to many different art disciplines such as sculpture, printing, drawing and, of course, oil and acrylics to name a few. He dabbled in stained glass for a while but primarily chose acrylic painting with a truly electric mix of subjects. He is fascinated by water, clouds, reflections, light and shadow and often sees patterns of abstract in realism which his art often reflects.
After 35 years of raising a family and living a “normal” life, Tom started painting again with a renewed passion. Since moving to Canton, he has joined the Canton Artist League and the Canton Museum of Art. His paintings have been in many galleries and shows throughout Stark and Portage Counties.

Other artwork on display will include some artists from previous shows, including Mike Criswell, Rick Silvey, Ken Kirkland, Barbara Taylor Aiken, Cathy Grunder, Frank Dale, Abi Yeagley, Susan Nolt Banks, Russ Hench, Hannelore Brown, Denise Ramey, Tracey Phillips, James Bennet, Sara Horvath, Linda Christman, Dee Vitello and others.

The Ahh Gallery is a project of the Louisville-Nimishillen Historical Society, open Thursday and Friday from 1 to 6 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm.  History is always on display at the gallery, and the Louisville-Nimishillen Historical Society is always interested in area artifacts, photographs and stories.   Support and donations of history items are always appreciated by the historical society.  The Art and History Gallery was founded in November 2014.  The Louisville-Nimishillen Historical Society sponsors free monthly programs, offers art classes, and invites everyone to come see what’s happening in historic downtown Louisville.  For more information, please call (330) 875-2829.  The Ahh Gallery is part of the 20/20 Vision Louisville, an economic development project of ArtsinStark and the City of Louisville, whose goal is to transform three historic blocks on East Main Street downtown into a destination for locals and tourists alike.
