Description: Art Explosion Toledo is an organization that unites local visual artists with alternative venues for displaying their work. It will host a free Opening Reception for the public to celebrate its inaugural Artists Showcase.

The event will take place at Ukazoo Books, located at 830 N. Westwood Avenue, from 4-9pm. The reception will have refreshments, music, door prizes and a silent auction.

On a regular basis throughout the year, the organization will promote a new Artists Showcase at a new venue. Each will feature a select compilation of local artists’ works.

Artists participating in the Opening Reception include Klair Russell, Amy Hernandez-Bullano, Dani Herrera, Chris McAnall, Vicki Lee, Greg Justus, Jeff Weisner, Jeannine Dailey, Jace Ryan, Chris Eicchenberg, Janet Ritter Davis, Sarah Sobel-Poage.

Art Explosion Toledo founder Michael Palmer said the events give the public access to artwork they may not otherwise have an opportunity enjoy.

Palmer is a local fine artist whose paintings were featured in the 2011 Art in Public Places program in Perrysburg. His works have also appeared in galleries nationwide and the book, An Artist's View - New York. Palmer will be among the artists displaying work in the inaugural Artists’ Showcase.
