Euclid Art Association Spring Fine Art Show at Euclid Public Library May 13 through May 20, 2017 by Ellen Howard and Susan Herrle
The Euclid Art Association's Spring Fine Art Show opens on May 13 at the Euclid Public Library, featuring well over a hundred works by local artists in a variety of media. The organization has members from all over Northeast Ohio and as far away as New Jersey.
One of the club’s biggest annual events, this judged show with awards provides a fantastic opportunity to view and buy original artwork. Last year nine pieces of art were sold, with eleven the year before that. The show flyer is a tribute to the artwork of Pat Snook, a long time Euclid resident and member of Euclid Art who passed away last year. The flyer features her Delicious Zero Calorie pastel, a popular attraction at the 2016 show.
In addition, visitors may take a chance on the beautiful floral bouquet watercolor created by Cathy Welner and Bob Moyer at the February EAA meeting and framed, compliments of Jon Boyton at Driftwood Gallery in Euclid. Raffle tickets are available at the show for $1 each or 6 for $5, with drawing at the end of the show. The artwork will be displayed on the Euclid Library gallery wall for two weeks before the show.
Artists reception is Wednesday, May 17 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. The public is welcome to attend. Meet the artists and not only enjoy beautiful artwork, but punch and goodies as well. The exhibit lasts from Saturday, May 13 through Saturday, May 20 during library hours.
The Euclid Art Association was established in 1958 by five ladies, mostly Euclid school art teachers, with a common interest in art. In the early years, there were many Sidewalk Art Shows in downtown Euclid, as can be seen in this old picture. Now, the Euclid Public Library hosts the group's premier fine art show and has been doing so for many years.
