Beachwood-bred Woldman to show with three other women artists
If you think it might be intriguing to see a painting of a promise, you should consider viewing the ethereal work of Susan Woldman. She has created 31 images, based on the book The Promise Effect that she co-authored with Josselyne Herman-Saccio, and all those paintings will be on display when the Beachwood Arts Council presents Art Effect. This exhibition will be on view at the Beachwood Community Center from November 10 through December 3, 2011 and will feature Woldman along with painters Natasha Turovsky and B. Skufca, and photographer Elisa Vietri. Woldman has a distinctive style that she describes as “colorful, mystical, and playful.” These images are giclee prints on canvas with added painting and textures, including 24-karat gold …

See the work - and the process - of a local painter
Beachwood is home to passionate patrons of the arts; the proof is the longevity of the city's arts council. But the city is home to a number of professional and amateur artists. Take Alex Klayman. He's been drawing and painting nearly 10 years, and his work lines the walls of his home. Still, Klayman calls himself an amateur. "I don't have an education in art, I'm self-taught. I'm still learning," he said. He's learned to get rich colors by mixing oils and layering pastels. But the most important lesson is to take his time. "When I first started, it took two, three days, sometimes half a day to finish a piece," he says. "Now I do it slower, and hopefully better." To see Klayman's pieces, browse his online gallery.
