Following the recent passing of Crealdé  artist, Paul McNear, the arts school released the following statement in their newsletter:

“We mourn the passing of long-time open studio monitor, Paul McNear. Paul was a nearly constant presence at Crealdé for the last 30 years. He served in various capacities and was always a positive ambassador for the school.
Paul began as a sculpture student at Crealdé in the late 1980s and was selected as a Fellowship Program student in 1991. Following his time as a student, Paul began serving as a monitor for the Sunday life-drawing open studio, and he continued in that role until retiring for health reasons in early 2016. Paul also taught Painting & Drawing classes from 2010 through 2013. An accomplished sculptor, Paul’s “Terpsichore” is on display at the Albin Polasek Museum in Winter Park.
An integral part of Crealdé, Paul touched many lives through the Sunday open studios. He certainly will be missed.”
