Mesch, Clark & Rothschild, P.C.will host an exhibit featuring the work of three artists: Eugenia Pell, Paul Mohr, and the late Arthur Diehl, September 13 through the end of 2012.

Eugenia Pell: Eugenia studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and with Paul Mohr at The Drawing Studio of Tucson. She works across media to represent beauty and emotion in landscape, portrait and still-life. Eugenia has also undertaken a substantial study and restoration of works by her late grandfather, Arthur Diehl, and her great-grandmother Marie Spartali Stillman.

The late Arthur Diehl:  Arthur was born in London and immigrated to the United States in 1893 when he was in his 20s. He was a master studio artist who was best known for marine scenes. “The most interesting aspect of these paintings is that, with the exception of still life, he painted from memory,” reflected his granddaughter Eugenia. Diehl’s works have been featured around the world and most recently at the University of Arizona Museum of Art.

Paul Mohr: Paul began portrait and figure drawing in 1987, and beginning in 1996, ran open studios for The Drawing Studio of Tucson. Paul continues his involvement and leadership with The Drawing Studio teaching, assisting in the development of programs and serving on its board of directors.  The former president of Southern Arizona Water Guild board of directors, Paul works in clay for sculpting, oil and watercolor for painting, and graphite for drawing.
