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 Euclid Art Association’s Annual Spring Fine Art Show at the Euclid Public Library starts Saturday, May 14, and runs through Saturday, May 21, 2016.  The show is open during regular library hours.  Come and see original artwork by local artists.  We will have over 145 pieces of artwork on display, including beautiful watercolors, photography, oils, acrylics and more.  This is a judged show and awards are given.  Tom Evert, an Ohio native who holds degrees in both painting and dance from Ohio University, will be the judge.

    Artists Reception is on Wednesday, May 18, 2016, from 6:30pm - 8:30pm at Euclid Library’s Lake and Shore Rooms.  All artists and members are asked to bring finger food, plated and ready to serve.  Invite all your family and friends to attend and the public is also welcome!

    Euclid Art is holding a raffle featuring an original framed floral artwork by the late, Dianne Boldman, a local award winning artist who taught art for over 30 years and was a member of the Ohio Watercolor Society.  We estimate the picture to be worth $500.  Tickets are sold during the show for $1 each or 6 for $5.  The drawing will be held Sunday, May 22.
  • Our next monthly meeting is on Monday, June 6, 2016 starting at 7:00pm and will feature our annual Members’ Art Critique night.  This year our artwork will be critiqued by the judge of our annual Spring Fine Art Show, Tom Evert.  This is always a very popular meeting and many members take advantage of this opportunity.  Our members are requested to bring only one picture to be critiqued (or else the meeting could last all night)!

    Please join us, even if you do not have artwork to be critiqued.  We guarantee that you will learn a lot.  Our meeting is held at the East Shore Church United Methodist, 23002 Lakeshore Blvd., Euclid, OH 44123.  Guests are always welcomed and are asked for a $3.00 donation.
  • More about Tom Evert.....he holds degrees in both painting and dance from Ohio University.  Upon graduation, he moved to New York City to apprentice with The Murray Louis and Alwin Nikolais Dance Companies.  From 1975-77 toured as a dancer and arts-in-education teacher with the Phyllis Lamhut Dance Company.  After being involved in arts education programming in the schools for 31 years, Evert emerged as a prominent “teaching artist” nationally and internationally.  Through the sponsorship of the Kennedy Center’s Ohio-State-Based Partnership, Tom has been actively presenting workshops for teachers on the integration of arts activities into the teaching of the core curriculum.  Tom, who began his college career in the visual arts, designs and constructs many of the sets for his dances, is also a muralist and is a sculptor of figurative works for which he has received commissions and prizes in invitational shows.
  • At our May 2, 2016 meeting, we put together an impromptu program.  Our planned demonstrator was unable to attend due to illness and we thank our artists and president, Lee Peters, for stepping forward and providing us with a very inspirational and fun evening.  Close to 30 members and guests participated in the evening events and enjoyed a delicious refreshment table thanks to our hostesses, Carolyn Swaffield and Diane Marra.  How many of those homemade cupcakes did you eat?  Visit the demonstration page for more info and pictures from the meeting.

    We also thank our local printer, Euclid Blue Printing, 908 East 222nd St., Euclid, 44123 for sharing examples of their printing services and offering a discount to Euclid Art members.  We encourage our members to see Glenn at Euclid Blue for personal service and excellent quality of your printing needs.
