Welcome to the Euclid Art Association...
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,
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
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.
