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...
       
  • Euclid Art Association’s next monthly meeting is Monday, October 2, 2017.  The meeting starts at 7:00pm at the East Shore United Methodist Church, 23002 Lakeshore Blvd, Euclid in the Fellowship Hall.  Guests are always welcome for a $3.00 donation.  At this meeting we feature award winning artist, Christine Weigand, demonstrating Painting with Cut PaperChristine has an Interior Design degree from Kent State University and she is well versed in the art of color, good design and composition.  Her art has won numerous awards as well as the hearts and minds of countless admirers.  At the meeting, Christine will cut and assemble a piece from beginning to end....and it’s a good guess that it will be a cat!  Christine lives in Ohio with her husband, sons and three cats.  Check out her gallery of pictures at www.littlegreycatstudio.com.  Come and enjoy the evening’s demo and refreshments after, served by our hosts, Ellen Howard and Sandi Richards.

  • The Euclid Art Association is saddened by the sudden death of artist Robert Moyer, our friend, demonstrator and workshop instructor.  He passed away on Wednesday, September 13....he was 93 years old!  We send our deepest sympathy to his family and close friends.  Bob was a co-instructor for our October 7 workshop.  We are grateful to Cathy Welner for agreeing to go ahead with the workshop on October 7th.....please read below for details, as the subject of the workshop has changed.

  • Euclid Art’s 2017-2018 season got off to a fantastic start.  Our meeting on Monday, September 11 was well attended by over 40 members and guests, including one new member.  Our president, Lee Peters acknowledged the 16th anniversary of 911, and, after a brief business meeting, Suzette Cohen started her demonstration on poured, or fluid, acrylics. Lee’s audio/visual setup was superb and as a result, every seat in Fellowship Hall had a clear view of Suzette’s attention-getting demonstration....we watched her create amazing and beautiful abstracts.  And, for the evening, we all let our imagination ‘go with the flow’!  The theme for the evening’s refreshments was ‘Remembering 911’.  We thank our hosts, Nancy Daly and Sue and Tom Herrle.  Check out the Demonstrations Page for more info and pictures.

  • SIGN UP NOW.....Workshops for the Fall of 2017
     
  • Saturday, October 7, 2017 "Floral Watercolor Workshop" with Cathy Welner, Ohio's premiere award-winning artist.  Cathy will share the techniques she uses to create amazing floral watercolors.  Cathy works in a sensitive painterly fashion, allowing the flow of pigment and brush to evoke a mood and transcend photographic realism.  She captures the essence of the subject and creates a certain warmth between the viewer and the painted image.  Cost is $45 for members, $55 for non-members.  Cathy has an impressive art bio and currently teaches watercolor classes at her home and at Cliffside Artist Collaborative in Hinckley, Ohio.
     
  • Saturday, October 28, 2017 Development of the Portrait in Black & White with award-winning artist, Dottie Geisert.  Dottie has been an active member of Euclid Art since 2015.  This workshop consists of a lecture, demonstration and presentation of Dottie's approach to the portrait in black and white.  Having taught classes in the portrait from the very basic to the more advanced, Dottie will resent a clear and readily understandable approach for the students.  After a complete understanding of the approach and applications of these theories, the student will be given the opportunity to apply the learned material to the drawing of a portrait from a live model.  Cost is $40 for members, $50 for non-members.  Dottie currently teaches multi-media art classes at the Wildwood Cultural Center in Mentor, OH.

    Workshops are held at the Euclid Art Gallery, located on the 2nd floor of the Euclid History Museum, 21129 North Street in Euclid.  To register call or email Susan Herrle at 216-481-5105 or suetom.herrle@sbcglobal.net , include EAA in subject line.  More details can be found on the Workshops page.
