First Friday Art after Dark
June 2, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An evening of Art and Exploration. This month we are featuring Seascapes by Eva Volf and as an added adventure featuring photos by members of the Chagrin Valley Astronomical Society. ” Where the Sky Meets the Earth.” Free to the public. Refreshments served.
Eva Volf is a full-time fine artist based in Aurora, Ohio. She is best known for her atmospheric seascapes. Through oil on canvas Eva captures the ever-changing variety and character of ocean waves, a great metaphor for life itself.
Eva`s creative talents have been influenced by Aivazovsky, Turner, and Robinson. Some great resources that she uses include her en Plein Air Sketches of the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and Lake Erie.
Eva is an exhibiting member of Hudson Society of Artists (Hudson, Ohio) and Oil Painters of America. Her work is collected nationally and internationally.
Enjoy sipping your coffee while looking out onto the ocean that hangs above the fireplace in your living room!
The Chagrin Valley Astronomical Society was founded in 1963 to increase the astronomical knowledge and technique of our members and for public service in our community. Our goals are the promotion of public education in astronomy, the continuation of valuable research, and the preservation of unpolluted skies for future use of both the astronomer and the general public. We own two acres of land at 15735 Huntley Rd, in Huntsburg Twp. 44046, where we operate Indian Hill Observatory. The site currently has three observatories that house six telescopes.
The primary focus of the CVAS is observing and photographing celestial objects and events. Many members are active in other aspects of astronomy such as Observing variable stars, telescope making, astrometry, etc. Most members have a keen interest in the academic side of astronomy and are more than happy to share their knowledge in these areas.
Chagrin Valley Astronomical Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
