The Edward E. Parker Museum of Art: Creating Through A Season of Seclusion
INTERGENERATIONAL ART CLASSES
We have good news! EEPMOA will be hosting our second intergenerational art class this summer. The class is open to all age groups, and pairs family members together to complete projects using a variety of materials and mediums. At class’s end, a free community exhibition will be held to display completed work. Classes will be held each Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6:00 to 8:00pm for six weeks: a total of twelve classes. Registration for this class is open; however, space is limited as we expect some of last year’s class to return. Classes are free, but nominal donations will be accepted to offset expenses. We expect to begin classes in July.
PAINT & SIP / OPEN MIC NIGHTS
EEPMOA planned to begin hosting Paint & Sip and Open Mic nights at the end of March; however, both events were put on hold after the suggestion was made to limit public gatherings to fewer than ten people due to the onslaught and spread of the COVID-19 virus. Ever optimistic, we have tentatively rescheduled these events to begin in July. Feel free to give us a call to verify start dates.
FREE ART CLASSES FOR SENIORS
As always, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, we provide free art classes for seniors. All skill levels are welcome, so there is no intimidation factor. Students typically draw, paint, sculpt, learn to frame and make jewelry. Classes are usually small; therefore, we have plenty of space, with accommodations on both the upper and lower levels.
THE GALLERIES AT SHINN HOUSE
Edward Parker curates three galleries at Mount Zion Congregational Church, Shinn House. Exhibitions hang for six to eight weeks before closing, and are followed by an “Artist Speak” forum where exhibiting artists network and answer questions related to process and body of work. Food is available for purchase at these events. The “Artist Speak” forum is held at 13240 Euclid Avenue in East Cleveland.
We are currently seeking talented artists to show their work at Shinn House, which is located at 10723 Magnolia Avenue in Cleveland. Contact Edward Parker if you are interested in submitting a portfolio for review.
You are invited to stop by our studio to view the latest sculptures created by Master Sculptor Edward E. Parker. The four pieces are titled Nirvana, The Masquerade is Over, The Resurrection, and Young Queen of Soul.
It is our hope that efforts made to minimize the damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have been highly successful, so communities worldwide can re-engage, and embrace the new normal that awaits them.
If you have questions related to any of the programs or events mentioned, or would like to be added to our email blast list, please give us a call at 216.851.6910, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, Think Art for Social Development!
