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...

  • Our March 2, 2015 meeting will feature a presentation by Mary Urbas.  Mary has over 35 years experience in the professional art world as a gallery owner, curator, juror, teacher, consultant, and exhibiting Fiber and Clay Artist.  She was also the judge at our 2014 Lake Farmpark Fine Art Show.  Mary will be talking to us about “Showing your work...Art Shows”.  She has a wealth of information to share with us and a limited time to do so.  Her presentation will just tantalize us to want to learn more.  Mary teaches a six week class on “Business of Art for Artists, Presenting and Promoting Your Art”, which members may be interested in taking.  Learn more about Mary, here.

    We hope to see you at our March 2nd meeting and guests are always welcome for a $3.00 donation.  The meeting starts at 7:00pm and is held in Fellowship Hall of East Shore United Methodist Church, 23002 Lakeshore Blvd., Euclid, OH 44123.  Parking is behind the church or across from Marc's Pharmacy door.  The entrance is through the back door of the church.  Refreshments are served afterwards.  Please come!
  • Many of us were disappointed that we did not get to see Susan Cone Porges’s demonstration, as planned, for our February meeting Too much snow and the church where we meet was closed.  Our program director, Melanie will reschedule Susan Porges for our next EAA season.

    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.
