The wit, whimsy, and infectious enthusiasm of a Cleveland art teacher is being celebrated.

In today’s State of the Arts, many former students are seeing their late teacher’s paintings for the first time in a retrospective of his work.

Entering the Tregoning Art Gallery a huge colorful canvas strikes the eye.

It’s full of meticulous realism, and elaborate fantasy.

And it’s one of many paintings native Clevelander Anthony Eterovich made of his home town.

The family of Cleveland industrial designer Viktor Schreckengost has decided not to create a museum in the city dedicated to his work. But many of his creations will remain in Cleveland where they will be displayed.
