to the Euclid Art Association...
next monthly meeting is Monday, March 7, 2016,
at 7:00pm in Fellowship Hall of East Shore United
Methodist Church, 23002 Lake Shore Blvd., Euclid.
Guests are welcome for a $3.00 donation. At
this meeting, we will feature the magic marker
artistry of Michael Winston.
Michael is one of Euclid Art’s very favorite
demonstrators. He returns to demonstrate his
surrealistic “floral dreamscapes”, as he calls
them. His dreamscapes have rhythm and
movement that excites one’s imagination and his
three dimensional use of color makes his work the
topic of conversation wherever it is shown.
He is the leading magic marker artist in the
country. Michael’s art has been displayed in
art shows, gallery shows, hospitals and private
businesses around Northeast Ohio. A bit more
information about Michael...he is a retired Chief
Petty Officer in the United States Coast Guard
Reserve. He served 22 years before he
retired in 1994. He was a member of Port
Security Unit 302, which was mobilized for
Operation Desert Storm in 1990.
You will certainly enjoy seeing Michael work his
magic....get lost in the movement and color of his
wonderful designs. You do not want to miss
