The other day we decided to take the afternoon off and visit the ‘Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography’ in downtown Canton, Ohio. So glad we did, because we had the pleasure of viewing a special exhibit of National Geographic Photographer Steve McCurry. I believe there were over 50 prints showcasing his extraordinary eye. He has traveled the world to faraway places that most of us will never visit. He studies the people in these places poised in the landscape of the country. Really a visual education. Next month, the Joseph Saxton Gallery will be presenting an exhibit called ‘Wilderness Visions’ by Clyde Butcher and he will be at the gallery in person on May 7th. We’ll make sure we take another day off to see his work.
There are many other galleries to visit as well and we enjoyed going through them. The ‘2nd April galerie’ is the hub of the arts explosion. There are three different levels of art to explore and many of the artist’s studios are upstairs. You can definitely make a purchase for yourself or for a special gift.
Stay overnight in one of our beautiful romantic guest rooms and enjoy an Ohio weekend getaway. Spend an afternoon in Canton and have lunch at one of the many outstanding restaurants in the downtown area.
Hope to see you soon,
