The Three Amigos: A Painterly Tribute to Ron Joranko
September 18, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - October 14, 2014 @ 4:00 pmFree
The Artists Archives of the Western Reserve (AAWR) announces an exciting upcoming new exhibition, The Three Amigos: A Painterly Tribute to Ron Joranko, which will be on display at the Artists Archives’ gallery from September 18 through October 24, 2014. The public is invited to attend the free art exhibition as well as the opening reception which will be on Thursday, September 18th from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Ron Joranko (1935 – 2008) left his career as a tax accountant in 1993 for the life of a plein air painter. Within two years he landed his first one-man exhibition at a Tremont gallery. In pursuit of his career, he began classes at Tri-C under the tutelage of Ron Johnston. Joined by another classmate Cleveland artist Loren Naji, the three comrades formed a life-long friendship working locally and traveling internationally. The Three Amigos will feature landscape, still-life, and figurative work by Joranko, a stunning plein air portrait of Ron by Ron Johnston, and selected paintings by Loren Naji.
Former art educator, Ron Johnston, will lead a plein air painting excursion at the Kentucky Gardens in Ohio City (W. 38th St. off of Franklin) on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Johnston will be offering suggestions and critiques for participating artists. Although not a traditional classroom or class, this is the perfect opportunity for participants to work on and learn more about plein air painting.
Donations are welcomed.
