My name is Carlene Holtz, and I have been involved with the Geauga Arts Council for many, many years. It is my dream to have a home for the Arts Council where we can create our own community including all disciplines of art, music, dance and theatre. I enjoy bringing like minded people together to coordinate and implement ideas, host events and pursue future endeavors in Geauga County. Please become a member today so we can help make your visions a reality!

My Story

 Carlene is a Chagrin Falls native and South Russell resident, a mother, artist, business owner, and current President of the Geauga Arts Council. Her works typically evoke a sense of reverence for the natural world through painting, sculpture and mixed media. Having previously owned and operated a landscape and garden design company, she now combines both art forms in her work.


 Visionary and founder of MC Art Studio, Carlene has been bringing the arts to her community since 1999 when she opened A Garden's Way Gallery in Burton. She has exhibited work in juried shows throughout Ohio, including the West Woods, the Russell Art Show, Fairmount Fine Arts Center, the Burton Art Show, and the Chagrin Valley Art Show. It is her dream to cultivate a space that welcomes artists to create, collaborate and share their artwork with the public.
