Procession - Turovsky

Beck Center’s Canvas Mural Gallery Grows with Fourth Installment

Dedication Ceremony Information

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. A dedication ceremony 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. Beck Center is located at 17801 Detroit Avenue.

“Procession” 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 intimidated to visit an art museum or concert hall,” remarked Sykes. “I wanted to bring a museum right out in the open so people walking by, in cars or even on 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 museum exemplifies Turovsky’s endless technique through incredible balanced proportional movement, magical color mix and meticulous attention to humorous details.

Sykes and Beck Center will host a special Artists reception from 6:30 p.m. 7:30 p.m. with Mayor Michael Summers where guests will get a preview of her latest exhibit, and that of ceramic artist Angelica Pozo, and a special performance by Oberlin Conservatory pianist Haewon Song. Ms. Turovsky’s exhibit will run through January 2014, and additional pieces of her 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 recently accepted into the Cannes Film Festival; and Cirque du Solei hosted an Art Exhibit with her works at their corporate Headquarters in 2006.
