September at MSAS

Erin  Mulligan is a professional artist living and working out of Canton, Ohio.  She has been actively creating art for nearly her whole life.  Growing up in an artistic family, it had always been her dream to be creative, speaking to others through her art and to make this her life.  Most of Erin’s drawing technique was learned from drawing so much as a child, helped along by the encouragement from her family, and guidance of her mom and grandma.   At fifteen her grandmother introduced her to oil paints and taught her in the french impressionistic style.  In 2003 she began lessons with Frank Dale.  He is a modern day master who teaches his students in the age old oil painting technique of glazing.  This is the style of painting which Erin uses today because it allows for so much depth and incredible detail.  Most of Erin’s art has something meaningful to say, sometimes it is obvious, but sometimes, the connection is almost subconscious.

“Art is a form of communication which brings peoples souls together.  It is an expression of ideas, with or without words, which allows everyone to share at a level where we are all similar.”

“Life” is what Erin is trying to convey through her subjects- the ugly, the beautiful, the mundane, the morbid, everything and the connections which hold it all together.”

Market Street Art Spot is grateful to Summit Glove, Incorporated for sponsoring September’s reception.

It may have been slightly cool outside the Art Spot on the 12th, but it was warm inside.  Many family members gathered together as Resident Artist, Michelle Mulligan shared Gallery A with daughter, Erin T.
