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!
