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...
  
  • The next Euclid Art Association monthly meeting is October 3, 2016, at 7:00pm at the East Shore United Methodist Church, 23002 Lake Shore Blvd., Euclid.  Color specialist, Glenn Kraly from Euclid Blue Copy and Graphic Center in Euclid will do a presentation on “Printing and Digital Options for your Artwork and Photos.  Euclid Blue is an Ohio corporation founded in 1991.   Some of the products and services they provide include color and black & white copies, posters/plotting (from your original or computer file), mounting, laminating and scanning...all at reasonable prices.  These very friendly and helpful people handle most of our art association’s copying and printing needs.  Glenn will be bringing some paper and printed samples and will be ready to answer your questions.  Refreshments are served after the presentation and a $3 donation is suggested for guests.
  • What an amazing start to our new season.  We had record breaking attendance at our September meeting − 44 members, plus 4 guests (two joined EAA) − to see our member’s demonstration by Dottie Geisert.  We thank Dottie for her presentation, “The Portrait, how I see it.  The approach, techniques & media.”  In college, Dottie majored in Portraiture and you can tell that this is still one of her most favorite subjects to talk about.  Visit our Demonstrations page for more information and pictures, plus a connection to Dottie’s very informative three-page handout.  We also thank our hosts for the evening, Maureen Philistine and Annette Fiorelli.  We enjoyed a table full of delicious treats.
  • This is Euclid Art Walk is Friday, September 23, 2016, from 5pm to 7pm . . . .  stroll from E. 218th St. to E. 228th St.  From the over 800 photographs submitted to the City for this event, we wonder which 30 pictures were selected to hang as ‘clings’ in downtown Euclid storefronts.  Several of our members are participating with sidewalk table displays, art to sell and interactive art projects for all, especially children.  And afterwards, Greg from Lakeshore Coffee House has invited EAA members to hang out there and enjoy listening to our president, Lee Peters play music on his iPad.  Or, head next door for a brew at the Euclid Brewing Company and see the ‘chalkboard’ that Ellen Howard created for them.
