(Myer Schulick, Boat House Row)
Two Tyler alumni, both retired and living at The Watermark at Logan Square in center city, are still active working artists who recently participated in a national competition for residents of Watermark senior communities. Their original artwork won local recognition and has been submitted for the 2012 Expressions Art Calendar contest, which will feature works from 25 Watermark communities around the United States.
Myer Schulick (MFA Painting), a lifelong Philadelphian, paints the iconic buildings of his hometown as a commitment to his personal philosophy: “How Do I Thank My City?”. His painting of “Boathouse Row” is one of two pieces that earned the juror’s recognition. The other is a large and intricate scale-model of a famous sailing ship, the whaler “The C. W. Morgan.” Schulick’s paintings are in various public and private collections throughout Philadelphia, including the office of Mayor Michael Nutter, law firms and The Waterworks Restaurant.

Her artwork has appeared in several art shows including Perkins Art Center of New Jersey, Wayne Art Center, Bryn Mawr Rehab & Princeton Hospital.
