A solo exhibit of plein air paintings by artist Larry Golba is on display through February 16 in the Perrysburg Municipal Building, 201 W. Indiana Ave. Curated by Main Art-ery this exhibit features 25 beautifully executed landscape paintings that warm up the Municipal Building walls and take viewers to places that are void of frigid temperatures and double digit inches of snow. Larry Golba’s ability to capture the essence of an outdoor scene as a painterly snapshot in time have won him over 150 awards.
Golba, a retired public school art teacher is able to explain his focus and technique easily. Larry has spent most of his life drawing and painting the landscapes and seascapes in his immediate surroundings and throughout his travels. He says, he “strives for well-composed, colorful and dynamic paintings that express a moment in time, atmosphere and mood, and the ever-changing effects of light and shadow. His paintings are impressions of personal experience and observations recorded on paper or canvas”.
Larry Golba holds a BA from Bowling Green State University and a Masters of Arts from Eastern Michigan University. His dedication to a life of painting and influential teaching has earned him a coveted place as part of the highly regarded “old guard” of prestigious artists of Ohio. He is a long time member of the Ohio Plein Air Society, Northwestern Ohio Watercolor Society, The Tile Club of Toledo, The Monday Morning Painters, The Group of Four, and The Toledo Artist Club.
