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 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 this one!

  • We thank our February demonstrator, Laurel Herbold, for telling us all about egg tempera and for demonstrating how she creates beautiful religious icons and luminous artwork using this master’s technique.  Over 30 members, plus one guest, enjoyed this fantastic and informative demo.  And, of course, we all enjoyed the refreshments afterwards, a celebration of Slavic Heritage....featuring smokies and potica from Raddell’s, an ethnic meat market, homemade kolbasi, plus mini pierogi and kolacky......all thanks to Sandi and Ellen.  Make sure to visit our Demonstrations page to see pictures and read more about Laurel’s demonstration.....

  • Remember, Eileen Dorsey, who did the acrylic demonstration at our November meeting.  She finished the painting that she started and has let us know that this painting is part of a solo exhibit of her artwork called “Welcome Home” Paintings of Ireland.  The exhibit is hosted at the 78th Street Studio gallery.  The opening for the event is Friday, February 19, 2016 from 5 - 10pm during the monthly ‘Third Friday’ art walks.  The show closes the following third Friday in March.  For more info visit:  http://eileendorsey.com/recent-news-gallery-openings/solo-exhibit-this-february-depicting-scenes-of-ireland/
