    Cliff McGuire is an artist who enjoys a long standing career in various mediums in both the fine and commercial art fields.
His fine art paintings and wood sculptures have been exhibited in juried and invitational shows at Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, Pennsylvania State University Art Gallery, as well as regional art festivals and private galleries.

Commercially, Cliff established the graphic art firm "artrnedia", in 1970. As the leading artist of artmedia, he produced exhibits and displays, illustrations for publications and advertising for major corporations.

Cliff's training in both fine art and commercial art was completed at Pittsburgh's Ivy School of Professional Art, where he enjoyed studies under the guidance of notable artists. This background has influenced Cliff to share his knowledge with new generations of artists. When he was invited to join the faculty of Oakbridge Academy of Arts in Southwestern Pennsylvania, he accepted the challenge and was the Dept. Chair I Assistant Director for 20 years until the schools closing in December of 20I3.

 Cliff's fine art arises from his devotion to nature and detail. He stretches and prepares his canvases on frames of wood he has cut, machined and assembled himself.The habit of beginning any project from "scratch" even extends to his home, which he designed and built in a rural setting in Pennsylvania for his wife Bonnie and their three daughters. His love of nature is evident in the open design of his home. Nature is, has been and will continue to be the inspiration for all his work. 

 

 

Stop in see Cliff's work along with the work of over 50 Local and Regional artists.

 The purpose of the Indiana Art Association is to promote interest, appreciation, and participation in the arts. We aim to stimulate the artistic growth and development of our members as individual artists through encouragement, education, exhibits of work, and exchange of ideas. It is our desire to motivate public interest in the arts and function as aesthetically wise consumers and citizens ourselves.
