Euclid Art Association Summer Fine Art Show at Lake Metroparks Farmpark, June 25 - August 18, 2019
Sun and shadows set the stage for Euclid Art Association members and guests at Lake Metroparks Farmpark on a perfect summer evening. On June 27 the reception and awards event gave judge David Rankin the opportunity to explain his top choices in the Summer Fine Art Show. Rankin described the show as “diverse and competitive” in general remarks. He called My Gloxinia in Sun and Shadow a “particularly stunning piece” when honoring Patricia L. Meyer’s watercolor as Best of Show.
One show stopper, a three-dimensional hanging by Cheryl Brickman titled On the Farm, incorporated photos of farm animals and natural materials to earn 1st Place in its category. Suzette Cohen earned top honors as well with her acrylic Green Eyes, with its “magnificent subtle textures” earning Rankin’s compliment. He liked the “balance in the design” in Casa Rondena by Kathy Oravecz and briefly exchanged composition choices that gave her 1st Place in watercolor.
Jeri Kluiber’s Peek a Boo, with a raccoon added to a historical tree, earned her 1st Place in mixed media, while Joan Milligan earned the top spot in the graphic art category with her unique Moon Rise done with alcohol ink. Rankin loved the blending of colors in that one, as well as the “utterly simplistic” design of Leaf Me Be, which merited a 1st Place ribbon for Lee Peters.
Other member artists earned ribbons for 2nd and 3rd Places and Honorable Mention. The exhibit continues until August 18 during regular Farmpark hours. There is no entrance fee just to view the show.
