Euclid Art member, Harry Pierson, passed away on October 11,
2017. He was 91 years old! We are saddened by his passing and send
our deepest sympathy to his family and his longtime partner, John J.
Covolo. Harry joined Euclid Art in 1992 and was an active board
member for 20 years. He served as negotiator for art show venues and
was the auctioneer at many of our Christmas parties. Harry worked in
both watercolors and mixed media and recently won 2nd place in mixed
media at our Lakeland Show this summer. He had a great sense of
humor and made everyone laugh.
