Reception Scheduled to Celebrate New Art in Cuyahoga Falls City Hall

Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, May 20, 2019 – Western Reserve Hospital plans to install “Watercolor Study of Bugs”, consisting of original artwork by Amy M. Mothersbaugh, a local artist and business owner.

Mothersbaugh has been an iconic community artist and business owner in Cuyahoga Falls since 1983. She recently closed her gallery on Front Street to work out of her home studio as a children’s book illustrator.

"Amy Mothersbaugh is a revered artist and true local icon here in the City of Cuyahoga Falls," said Mayor Don Walters, Cuyahoga Falls. "We are honored to be able to celebrate her unmatched talent by sharing her work with the community and thank Dr. Robert Kent and Western Reserve Hospital for sponsoring these installations at City Hall so that our residents and visitors can continue to enjoy free access to local art."

The pieces created for “Watercolor Study of Bugs” began as a portable watercolor study series several years ago as she cared for her parents. This art show includes over 200 original art pieces including butterflies, moths and insects.

“Like a butterfly or a moth that stops only for a moment to refresh before faithfully moving on to another opportunity, I am moving on to what awaits in my art career,” said Mothersbaugh.

All are welcome to view Mothersbaugh’s art show at the reception, sponsored by Collide: Cuyahoga Falls, on Thursday, May 30 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. in City Hall, located at 2310 Second Street in Cuyahoga Falls. Following the reception, light appetizers will be provided from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at HiHO Brewing Company, located at 1707 Front Street.

“Watercolor Study of Bugs” can be viewed on the first floor of City of Cuyahoga Falls City Hall during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., through August 2019.
