Gallery Exhibition Schedule
“A Thrilling Act: The Art of Anthony Eterovich”
Thursday, November 29 to Friday, December 14, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 29 from 4-7pm
Anthony Eterovich, (1916 – 2011), was a Cleveland native who learned, taught, and made gorgeous art in the city. Accomplished at painting and drawing, this exhibition draws from 70 years’ worth of work. His paintings are rich in color and texture. Eterovich painted and drew the people, places and things he saw in his daily life in realistic and abstract styles, and combinations of both.
He was a graduate of the Cleveland School of Art. He went on to teach in the Cleveland Public School system, as well as the Cleveland Institute of Art. He was also the Scholastic Regional Affiliate in the Cleveland area for many years. Join us in celebrating the life’s work of a man who was thrilled to be able to do what he loved.
Special thanks to Karen Eterovich Maguire, daughter of the artist, and Bill Tregoning of Tregoning & Company.
