Our purpose is to stimulate an interest in the visual arts among our members and to promote the establishment of a Fine Art Center in the Community.

 Welcome to the Euclid Art Association...
  • Our October monthly meeting is fast approaching!  It's on Monday, October 5, 2015 at 7:00pm in the Fellowship Hall of the East Shore United Methodist Church at 23002 Lakeshore Blvd., Euclid.  Everyone is welcome and guests are asked for a $3.00 donation.

    The demonstration for the evening will feature the cartoon art of Len Thomas, aka "Aloysius".  Len studied Advertising Art at Cooper School of Art in Cleveland and minored in Art at Hiram College where he majored in business.  He started drawing at a very young age, but at age 19, while in the Service, he drew cartoons on sweatshirts depicting the humorous side of Army life.  The sweatshirts were a big hit and sold for $5.00 apiece back in 1962.  His 'editorial' and 'gag' cartoons have appeared in various local city papers over the years.  He has had a varied and interesting career, which, I'm sure, he will tell us all about!  In addition to cartoons, Len is also an oil painter!  So, come and enjoy an evening of cartoon and art.  See you at our October meeting.

  • The Lake Farmpark Show is fantastic!  There are 83 pictures in the show.  A lot of people worked very hard on Tuesday to set up the show and we thank them all.  We especially thank Denise Gressley and her staff at Lake Farmpark for making all this possible.  Many of us enjoyed the 'cookies and cider' reception on Thursday evening.  What a gorgeous fall night to be at the park!

    We congratulate our Best of Show winner, Mary Alice Valvoda for her "Flight Through Time", a digital art photo collage on canvas.  Interestingly, the only other digital art entry in the show also won an award!  Ellen Howard's Paper by 53 sketch "Hilton Infancy" won Honorable Mention.  Ellen is also our show coordinator.  Didn't she do a great job with this show!

  • A BIG THANK YOU . . . What a fantastic opportunity for Euclid Art to hold our September meeting at the Apple Store, Eton Village.  Apple invited us to use their state-of-the-art business conference center for Tom's presentation.  We thank April Smith from Apple, along with the Apple team, including Chris Woodman, for making this possible.  And, of course, many thinks to Tom Woodman, our featured demonstrator, who showed us how he uses the iPad and Paper by 53 app to create art and architecture.  For more on this meeting, visit our Demonstrations page.
