Surrealist Turovsky Adds Fourth Mural to Beck Center Outdoor Gallery
Beck Center for the Arts is pleased to announce that a fourth canvas mural, "Procession," by surrealist Natasha Turovsky has been installed at their Lakewood campus. An Artists Reception will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, October 11. Ms. Turovsky will begin a series of Northeast Ohio exhibits courtesy of International Art Curator Paul Sykes. Ms. Turovsky's works can be seen at Beck Center, located at 17801 Detroit Avenue, October 11 through January 8, 2014. Exhibits at Beck Center are free and open to the public.
"Procession", which measures at 40'x 13' feet tall, is the latest canvas mural commissioned for Beck Center by Mr. Sykes. "We live in a world where adults and children are too busy or sometimes intimidated to visit an art museum or concert hall," remarked Sykes. "I wanted to bring a gallery right out in the open so people walking by, in cars or busses, can enjoy a moment of excitement or laughter by the Turovsky paintings."
In addition to "Procession," The Natasha Turovsky Outdoor Wall Gallery at Beck Center includes "A Night at the Opera," which measures at 33'x18', "Beck Stage," 18x22," and "Marathon," 17'x51.' This gallery exemplifies Turovsky's endless technique through balanced, proportional movement, magical color mix, and meticulous attention to humorous details. "Each painting declares a different whimsical subject matter that encompasses the triumphs and faults of humans," explained Sykes.
Guests will preview Ms. Turovsky's latest exhibit and that of ceramic artist Angelica Pozo, whose pieces will be shown through November 20, 2013. The reception includes a performance at 7:00 p.m. by Oberlin Conservatory pianist Haewon Song. In addition to the Beck Center exhibit, additional pieces of Turovsky's latest collection will be shown at Luca Italian Restaurant, The O Gallery, Quail Hollow Country Club, and Cravings Café.
Born in Russia, Turovsky is a surrealist artist, professional musician and filmmaker whose work has been acclaimed throughout the United States and Canada. Since 1996, she has held tenure with Cleveland Exhibits and local Art Collectors. An award-winning movie based on her talents, "Pictures at an Exhibition" was accepted into the Cannes Film Festival, and Cirque du Solei hosted an art exhibit with her works at their corporate Headquarters in 2006.
