The Cincinnati Art Club Viewpoint Show, a national show, juried this year by Nita Leland, began Friday night.  This is a big deal, with valet parking and all the awards given to the winners in each category (oil, acrylic, pastel/drawing, watercolor).  I didn't go (I didn't even go last year when I got in the show).  Jerry and I did sneak over to see it Saturday afternoon (they are only open from 2-5 Saturdays and Sundays). 

It is a very strong show and a watercolor even got first prize!!  My friend, Sharon, got in this year with a fluid acrylic painting of a lock.  And a friend I used to take lessons with, Karen Pettit, got in with her beautiful zebra.  There were some outstanding oils, acrylics, pastels, and watercolors throughout.  A lot of different techniques - some on yupo - for the watercolors so we were well represented.  A few collage works (one got 2nd prize).

If you're in the Cincinnati area, do go see the show.  It's worth the trip! 

Congratulations, Sharon and Karen!

Glad you enjoyed the show - and also glad you did not divulge the winners - they will go onto the website this week (our webmaster is out of town) probably by Wed. or later.

Deb, I never even thought about the winners not knowing who won - don't they all know by now? I just assumed they would be at the show or have received notice. Hope I didn't break any rules - Jerry wanted to bring a camera and I told him we weren't allowed to do that!
