Postcards of Shows to Come

This is a postcard for the upcoming show by Sandy Maudlin and her Wednesday morning students - the show begins Friday, March 28th - today! - with a reception from 6 - 8 pm. These are advanced students so you would really see some interesting and experimental and just plain good artwork from this bunch. The show continues through April 19th so try to stop by and see the work, if you can. Where? Go to the Middletown Arts Center (in Middletown, OH) at 130 N. Verity Parkway.

Good luck to Sandy, Susan, Shirley, Kathy, Joanie, Lorri, Louise, Mary, Mary Jane, Barb, Carol and Jean!!

And I picked up 1,000 postcards yesterday afternoon for the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society show. "Colorburst@Evergreen" is the name of our annual spring show and will be up from Sunday, May 3 (artist reception from noon-4 pm) through Sunday, June 15th. If your Mom likes art, it would be a great place to purchase an original watercolor painting for Mother's Day!

And congratulations to Janet Vennemeyer, Joan Ammerman, Deb Ward, Susan Grogan and Tamara Adams for having their paintings chosen to grace the postcards this year! Sharon Cranston of Evergreen Retirement Community (230 West Galbraith Road, Cincinnati), chose the black background for the paintings and I think it looks very elegant.

I don't have anything specific to do today so have plenty of time to spend painting and catching up on everyone's blogs (I'm behind by days on some of them).

I hope the show tonight and throughout the exhibit, is successful. Are you in this show?

Neat looking postcard for the art group show too.

I wish I was close enough to enjoy some of these shows with you! they look to be exciting and I love the art on the great postcards.

I'm not in the first show, Ann. It's for Sandy's Wednesday class (I'm in the Tuesday class). The Wednesday class has a lot of "pros" in it, those who have been showing and selling their work for a while now.
Thanks, Deb. I helped set up the second one (it's the Evergreen show) and I might be in that show - not sure yet. I want to see both of the shows, though. Hi, Susan! Hope you are feeling better :)
