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 monthly meeting of the Euclid Art Association is Monday evening, April 6, 2015, starting at 7:00pm.  We are featuring the artwork of John Troxell, a local Cleveland artist and muralist, working in a realist, representational style using acrylic and oil.  At our meeting, Troxell will demonstrate using acrylics...in a BIG way!  The 14x60 ft. mural that he recently completed is in downtown Cleveland on the outside of the Urban Farmer restaurant at east 6th and St. Clair and features a herd of cattle!  His other works can be seen in private and public collections across the United States including the Cleveland Clinic, The United States Courthouse, Cleveland, OH, Parker Hannifin Corporation, Sherwin Williams Corporation, and several local and national restaurants.  He paints commission murals and works on canvas for galleries, interior designers, architects and building contractors.  He attended Marine Military Academy in Harlingen, TX and Case Western Reserve University, where he studied with Anita Rogoff.  He is a graduate of Academy of Realist Art in Seattle, WA.  His award winning artwork has been exhibited in many group shows throughout Ohio, Michigan, New York and Washington State.

    So please join us.  Our April meeting is held at the East Shore Church United Methodist, 23002 Lakeshore Blvd., Eucild, OH 44123.  All are welcome and guest are asked for a $3.00 donation.
  • Thank you to Mary Urbas, the featured speaker at our March meeting.  We learned much good information from her presentation on "Showing Your Work at Art Shows".  As the Gallery director at Lakeland Community College, Mary talked to us about presenting your work, carefully reading the "Call to Entry Form", pricing your work, and what judges look for.  Good news!  Mary is willing to teach her six weeks Business of Art class for us...many members expressed interest!  Special thanks to our hosts, Carolyn Swaffield and Ellen Howard.  For more on the meeting, please visit our Demonstration page.
  • Are you getting ready for EAA's Spring Fine Art Show at the Euclid Library, May 2 through May 9, 2015?  WE ARE.....forms and instructions were sent out to everyone with the March newsletter and are now available on our website.
  • Our friends at the Hillcrest Art Guild are having their 2015 Winter Show, February 27 through March 30, at the Beachwood Library, 25501 Shaker Blvd.  Stop by and see their artwork.
  • Congratulations to Sue Ann Kulcsar for winning second place at the Lake Farm Park Quilt 2015 Show in the Garment category for her kimono.  "I wanted the kimono to look like butterfly wings.  It is reversible."  The Quilt Show runs from February 14 through March 25, 2015.  Check Lake Farmpark's website for more details.

    We congratulate Rosalie Kastelic on her One Woman Show - Tribute to Color.  "It was very humbling indeed to see 20 of my favorite works on one 40 ft. wall."  Her artwork is hanging on the Healing Wall at Magruder Hospital in Port Clinton, Ohio and will be there for the next 2 to 3 months.

    Our March 28, 2015 workshop “Faces in Watercolor” with David Rankin is now filled.  To see what David has in store for us, take a look at what he put together on his website for this workshop:

    “Develop a basic shape of a face along with it’s shadow structure using a less detailed line drawing.  Then you...paint it using only 1-3 layers of watercolor.”  David says that he is continuing to work on the images that we will be painting in the workshop.  So, come back to this link, often.  Not signed up, but interested...we can put you on a stand-by list in case of a cancellation.

    On April 25, 2015 our workshop is "Layered Cut Paper Portraits" by Kerry Remp.  There are still openings available for this workshop.  Artist, engineer, musician, Kerry Remp will show us how to create a Layered Portrait....an artistic creation using sheets of colored card stock that are hand-cut with an X-acto knife and stacked together to represent the person/ object.  Learn the process that Kerry uses to transform a photo/picture into a Paper Portrait with 3-D depth.  Learn about.....selecting an appropriate image, posterization, rendering layers, color selection, cutting and putting it all together.  During the workshop, we will make a 4-layered portrait of Johnny Cash.  Check out our Workshop webpage for more details.
