Euclid Art Association Spring Fine Art Show Enhances Library
The Euclid Art Association Spring Fine Art Show enhanced the Euclid Public Library from May 11-18 this year. Featuring paintings, graphic art, photography and three-dimensional art, the 157 works on display represented 41 of the EAA members. These participating artists, along with other members, families and friends, celebrated on the evening of May 15 at a public reception, deemed one of the best ever. Over 100 guests were honored as Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail, who had come from a Keep Euclid Beautiful planting event, shared brief remarks about how Euclid Art works to beautify and enrich the city. President Lee Peters announced awards and presented cash prizes to the artists.
Valerie Rose Gale won “Best of Show” along with “First Place” in the Acrylic/Oil category for her large painting entitled Adelaide’s Tree. After the Spring Fine Art Show ended, this large work was still displayed in the library gallery hall through May 30, along with a selection of award winning pieces. Inquiries about purchasing the art can be made at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don Wilson won the coveted raffle prize, a watercolor titled Gladiolas in a Vase, donated by David Rankin, an internationally renowned artist. Thanks to David and to 4 Corners Custom Framing on E. 185th Street. EAA also thanks the library personnel.
To commemorate the 60th year of its founding, the Euclid Art Association’s display included a large Pop Art version of its signature paintbrush. The club meets on the first Monday of each month, September through June, at the East Short United Methodist Church. Besides the demonstrations by artists at each meeting, EAA sponsors exhibits, workshops, an art scholarship, and members’ pages on its website, www.euclidart.com.
