Two Tim Myrick Watercolors Win Awards


CLEVELAND, OH. NOVEMBER 17, 2010: Two original watercolors by Tim Myrick won awards in different prestigious competitions:

“Coventry Street Depot” was the recipient of the AMPERSAND AQUABORD AWARD in the North East Watercolor Society’s 34th Annual International Juried Exhibition 2010, which took place at the Gallery at the Kent Art Association in Kent, CT, through November 7, 2010. The landscape, featuring the Coventry Street RTA station at Shaker Boulevard and Coventry Road in the Shaker Square area of Cleveland, Ohio, captures the luminous early-morning light.

“A Peek at the Past" was the recipient of the 3rd Place Award in the 22nd Annual Art in Gadsden Exhibition, November 2010. It will be on display at the Gadsden Arts Center in Quincy, Florida [greater Tallahassee area] through December 2010. As with many of his works, the old barn which is barely standing, is reminiscent of Mr. Myrick’s childhood in the Florida panhandle, where, as a youngster in the 1960’s and 70’s, he and other members of his family, often worked in the tobacco fields.

The jury also selected a second Myrick original, “Guarded by Elephants” , for inclusion in the Annual Art in Gadsden Exhibition.

Mr. Myrick describes himself as a story-teller: “Through my short stories, I try to give the viewer a sort of 4th dimension into my work”. His goal is the marriage of visual art and prose to create an image that connects with the viewer and reader. His original watercolors include an Artist’s story – a frame-able written description of the inspiration for the painting, and its creation.

His watercolors are primarily realistic – both landscapes and figurative. His has been described as a unique blend of talent and skill - employing masterful techniques including dry-brush, to create watercolors with unusual depth and detail.

Mr. Myrick was born and raised in Quincy, Florida. He relocated to Cleveland, Ohio to attend the Cleveland Institute of Art, graduating in 1981. While he resides and works primarily in the Shaker Square area of Cleveland, he considers both the Tallahassee and Northeast Ohio regions to be his twin ‘home-towns’. He is as proud of and loyal to the Cleveland area and the Cleveland Browns, as he is of his Southern heritage, saying “Southern is a state of mind.”

His original work and signed prints are available through the online gallery:
