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.
