Welcome to the Euclid Art Association...
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,

Many of us were disappointed that we did not get to
see Susan Cone Porges’s demonstration, as planned, for
our February meeting.
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

kimono to look like butterfly wings. It is
reversible." The Quilt Show runs from February
14 through March 25, 2015. Check Lake Farmpark's

We congratulate Rosalie Kastelic on her One Woman

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
“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
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
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
