Afternoon in private studio offers chance to see artist at work

Mary Deutschman's triptych of New Orleans musicians uses rich color and composition to illustrate her subjects.

Westlake-Westshore Arts Council, with an educational event sponsorship from Nordson Corporation, is facilitating an Afternoon in the Bay Village Studio of painter Mary Deutschman on Saturday, June 22, from 1 to 5 p.m.

Known for her powerful use of color and inviting compositions of jazz musicians from Cleveland and New Orleans, scenes from the West Side Market, California beaches, the Metroparks and more, Deutschman will demonstrate her approach to painting. From a photographed subject, she will develop a sketch, a computer color study and capture a moment of time on canvas.

Deutschman states that for her, there is joy in each part of the painting process. She loves the mixing of paints, the buttery feeling of the oils and the brilliant colors that come into being. She states her “head gets into the ‘zone’ where writers write, musicians play and dancers perform.”

To receive additional information and to register for this unique event with painter Mary Deutschman, who has exhibited locally and nationally with paintings in numerous corporate collections, please call 440-835-5765. Space is limited.
