On October 11, 2013, the Beck Center for the Arts was proud to unveil a fourth canvas mural by renowned artist Natasha Turovsky. The event also kicked off a series of Northeast Ohio exhibits courtesy of International Art Curator Paul Sykes. Ms. Turovsky’s works will be on display at the Beck Center through January 8, 2014. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
The new mural is titled “Procession” and measures 40’ x 13’ and is the latest large work commissioned by the 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.”
The new mural will join the other works which adorn the exterior walls of the Beck Center including “A Night at the Opera,” which measures at 33’x18’, “Beck Stage,” 18x22,” and “Marathon,”17’x51.’’
“Each painting declares a different whimsical subject matter that encompasses the triumphs and faults of humans,” explained Sykes. 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.
