The Geauga Arts Network Group (GANG) is pleased to welcome abstract artist Mary Ann Sedivy to its monthly meeting on October 16th, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Heinen’s Café, 402 Center St. in Chardon. She will be presenting examples of her work and will discuss her technique and artistic journey. This educational event is free and open to the public. No reservations are necessary.
Sedivy has been painting since childhood. She has worked extensively with oils, but has more recently migrated successfully to acrylics. She creates vibrant, expressive paintings characterized by an abundant use of color. She has executed many works in a landscape motif, and her evolution into more abstract work continues to be inspired by nature.
She is professionally engaged as an art teacher and art department chair at Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin High School. She takes great pleasure in living and working in Geauga County, from which she draws great inspiration. She says, “The farmlands, wetlands, the trees and open spaces, and woodlands are very calming. As the seasons change, the colors also change.”
Sedivy’s work has been exhibited at many prominent venues, such as BAYarts of Bay Village, Fairmount Fine Arts Center, Lakeland Community College Fine Arts Gallery, Ohio Plein Air Society High Road Gallery, and Solon Center for the Arts. She also features prominently in several private collections. Her works can be viewed at Mary Ann Sedlivy.
The Geauga Arts Network Group is an ad hoc group whose mission is to promote communication, collaboration, and cooperation across artistic disciplines for artists living and/or working in Geauga County. For further information, contact Nicky Bucur at 216-240-1501.
