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, November 3, 2014, starting at 7:00pm.  At this meeting we are featuring the artwork of Stuart M. Abbey Stuart will be talking about and demonstrating “Watercolor Pencils and Adding Dimension to 2-D Surfaces”.  Stuart is currently the president of the Creative Artist Association in Mentor.  He works primarily in watercolors but also ventures into acrylics, gouache, pen and wash, and other media.  Stuart received his Bachelor of Science degree in Art Studio in 1960 from Western Reserve University, including two years at the Cleveland Institute of Art.  He did post-graduate work in art education and art history at Cleveland State University.  And, he studied watercolor painting throughout the United States and in France.  He is a retired newspaper journalist with 40+ years of writing experience....now experiencing an even busier career as an artist.  Stuart is also a member of the Mentor Community Arts Commission; The Paint Company, a watercolor society in Kirtland; member of Art Essence Cooperative Gallery in Painesville, Ohio and associate member of the Ohio Watercolor Society.  Join us to see this very accomplished artist demonstrate his work.  The meeting is held at the East Shore Church United Methodist, 23002 Lakeshore Blvd., Euclid, OH 44123.  All are welcome and guests are asked for a $3.00 donation.
  • Many thanks to our October demonstrator, Peggy Wertheim, a wearable surface design artist.  Over 25 people enjoyed her talk, displays and demo about Batik, Shibori and Silk Painting.  We learned a lot about silk!  And wouldn’t you just love to own one of her beautiful silk scarves?  Oh, you can!  Attend one of her upcoming holiday shows:  Sunday, October 26: B’nai Jeshurun Sisterhood 2nd Annual Holiday Boutique at 27501 Fairmount Blvd, Pepper Pike, OH 44124, noon to 4:00pm.  Or, December 6 & 7 at the 27th Annual ArtCraft HOLIDAY sale at The ArtCraft Building, 2570 Superior Ave, Cleveland, OH 44114, 10am - 7pm on Saturday and 11am - 5pm on Sunday.  (For more about the meeting and pictures and to find out where Martha Germano got that delicious pizza, go to the Demonstration page.)
  • Our first Fine Art Show of the 2014 - 2015 season is at Lake Farmpark, 8800 Chardon Rd. (Rt. 6), Kirtland.  The show runs from September 17 through November 2, 2014.  We have over 70 entries!  We would like to thank Beth Florian and her staff at Lake Farmpark for helping us make this a successful event.  Fall is a great time to visit Lake Farmpark.  They have a lot of interesting weekend activities and special events that attract a lot of people.  We hope you get a chance to visit the park and see our show.  Congratulations to Eddie Mitchell for winning Best of Show for 'Super Cindy', at right.

  • Euclid Art would like to thank the people at IngenuityFest for the opportunity given us to participate in this year's event and I would especially like to thank Dennis McDonald, Ellen Howard, Rozenia Cunningham and David Simmerer for all their help with the show.  Everybody had a great time and we had a chance to introduce ourselves to many people who were unfamiliar with Euclid Art.  Photos from the event...
  • Workshop Information:  On Saturday, October 4, 2014, we held our first workshop this season - David Rankin's "5-Minute Sketching Recipe for Faces of all Kinds!".  It was a big success and everyone raved about how much they enjoyed David and his Fast Sketching Techniques — which is also the name of his book available used or kindle from Amazon.  Thank You, David, for a great class!
     

    Good News!  David Rankin will be back on March 28, 2015 doing a workshop for us on “Faces in Watercolor”.  David will provide us with two faces to draw on watercolor paper in advance of the workshop.  You will learn a simplified procedure to create faces in watercolor.  Details are developing.....
     

    Then, on April 25, 2015 our workshop is "Layered Cut Paper Portraits" by Kerry Remp.  Check out our Workshop webpage for details.  Also, see more of Kerry's Layered Portraits at http://www.paperart4u.com/.  Here is his latest layered portrait of the Beatles......
