Learn about artistic 'Frame & Structure' from local artist Edward Beyer

Edward Beyer's "Appalachian Barn #6" in pastel.

The arresting paintings and drawings of Edward Beyer derive from familiar impressions and influences found in nature. His reputation has jockeyed his work into the Butler Midyear Show, Adirondack Watercolor Show, The Artist Magazine, Arts for the Parks, the Ohio State Fair, Zanesville Arts Center and the Best Of Drawing (North Light Books). 

Beyer’s paintings and drawings evolve using a strong sense of design, shape, line and color. Barns are a subject he is well known for and have landed his name on the permanent collection of the Butler Museum of American Art, B.F. Goodrich Corp. Headquarters, and several private collections. Born in Rockwood, Tenn., and a graduate of the Art Academy of Cincinnati, Beyer now resides on the west side of Cleveland with his family.

You can see his work in action and learn from the best during “Frame & Structure,” his one-day workshop on Saturday, Sept. 7, at BAYarts from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Ed will share the steps he takes to create this structured composition of the exterior façade of a structure. Oil and acrylic painters and pastel artists are welcome! Visit bayarts.net to register and check out more of his artwork at edwardbeyer.com.
