Christine Gorbach - 2018

Christine passed away on November 22, 2018, in Akron, Ohio. Art was her passion and through a plethora of talents, including abstract painting, film making, music, and dance, she brought beauty and color into the lives of all who knew her. She taught art in the Cuyahoga Falls School system for 30 years and at the college level for ten more years. She worked for Kent State University as a supervisor for Art Education and adjunct professor.  Her art was exhibited throughout the world and she was the recipient of many prizes and awards and entered numerous competitive art shows. As a singer, she performed with the Crooked River Woman's Chorale and Summit County Choral Society. She performed in many plays and also at the Severance Hall in Cleveland and Carnegie Hall in New York City. Christine was an intelligent, artistic, and loving person and will be missed by all who knew her.

She also was a Docent at the Akron Art Museum and taught home classes to adult students at her studio. She had a business that created collectible miniature paintings for dollhouses that were exhibited in England.  Mary traveled to England, Spain, San Juan Islands, and other European countries. The paintings done there earned her a strong artistic reputation nationally and internationally.  As an artist, she won many, many prizes and awards and entered numerous competitive art shows.

She was an active member of the Akron Women's Art League Society of Artists, Gallery Board of the Women's City Club, and Signature Member of Hudson Society of Artists along with being a respected teacher at the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center. 


Mary Harvey Sanders Artist's Statement:  I try to look at nature and get an impression of what I see, but mainly I use my memory and the vision that I see in my mind to show the vision I have seen in nature.  It is a "feeling" of being there on the scene; there is the essence of trees...but not the heavy weight of trees.
