Java, Jazz 'n Art in New Richmond

I'm going to make time today - it's a glorious day for a drive down by the river - to see the artwork in the "Java, Jazz and Art" show in New Richmond, OH. Do come on by and have a cuppa and see some good art. Whether you can afford to buy now or not, take a nice drive and support our local artists.

I'm going because I know Marilyn Bishop (the founder of the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society) has several paintings/prints for show and sale and she always has interesting and innovative stuff.

All day today 11 am - 6 pm.
Jerry and I did go - lovely drive and million dollar view of the river, so calm it was like looking at blue glass. Marilyn Bishop and Ginny Hall (both members of GCWS) had paintings in the show and in the Freedom House Gallery, as did Rob Coomer and Vicki Jones (both members of TriState Photo Society). Well worth a day out with a stop at Front Street Cafe for something good to eat and drink.

As much as I'd love to come, and as fun as the drive along the river sounds, it's a bit of a stretch to drive all the way to Cincinnati :-)

But - we are now having our annual show - would you drive here to see it? :-)

LOL! That is for the local folks who read my blog (but never comment - I know they read it because they stop me to tell me), so I wouldn't expect you to come for a 1-day event, Nava. And I might not drive to see your annual show - but if I flew there and got to meet you, too, that would be an extra bonus and I might just do that - afterall, I just travelled to Vancouver Island to visit a friend I made online (making contact with her from her husband being an artist in 2 groups of mine) - so it's not impossible to think, as Judy Tenuta used to say, "It COULD happen!!"
