Cleveland artist Anthony Eterovich was known for the range of his work from abstract to realistic, portraits to scenes of Americana. His work goes on view at Artists Archives of the Western Reserve in Fulfilling the Eye: Anthony Eterovich (1916-2011).
Eterovich was born and raised in Tremont, and earned a degree in portraiture from the Cleveland School of Art (later Cleveland Institute of Art) in 1938. After serving in WWII, he went on to get education degrees and teach in Cleveland Public Schools for more than four decades, as well as evening and weekend classes at CIM for more than 50 years. He also exhibited widely around the region including many times at the Cleveland Museum of Art’s popular May Show.
Fulfilling the Eye covers the full eight decades of his artistic career in more than 30 works, from 1930s charcoal studies of his classmates and children during the Great Depression, to his late work.
The opening reception, which is free and open to all, will include a short talk by his daughter Karen Eterovich.
