GETTING INTO ART SHOWS




Jerry and I both entered 2 things into the Bethesda North Art Exhibit, an annual juried show.  And we both got it!  So I have 2 paintings (my blue hydrangea paintings) and Jerry has 2 photos.  We take them up to the show this month and they remain in the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for a year.  How cool is that?






And the postcards for the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society annual member show were distributed at Wednesday's meeting.  I was thrilled to see my painting of pears (the one that sold) on the postcard!!  So that will be going out to lots of people and I brought a few home for me to keep and give to family and friends.  The inset painting is by Susan Grogan, one of my favorite painters in the GCWS.




Come by and see the show, if you're in the area in September or October!

WOW!! That is great news! Big congrats to you and Jerry. I'm excited for you both-too bad I don't live up there anymore (I'm from Ohio) I'd love to see your work in person.

Hi Rhonda,
Way to go--both of you! No wonder you've got such a winning grin on your profile photo.
Keep up the great work, Rhonda.
Sincerely,
Gary.

Dear Rhonda - congratulations - your pears look outstanding - took a few minutes to catch up on your last three posts - I was falling behind over the week-end. Love the series of pears and what a great art day with Trish - makes we wish we had workshops in our little area - hopefully we will see that change in time. Have a great week-end and also congratulations to Jerry as well. God Bless!

Thanks, everyone! I wish you all could come to both openings (of course, I don't even have an opening date for the Bethesda/Mary Jo Cropper one yet).
Katherine, I emailed you the specifics - hope to see you there!!!

Woohoo! Congrats! Your pear piece is so stunning and to be used to promote is such an honor! Bravo!

Laura Moore said...

Hi Rhonda. Congrats for having your painting chosen and to Jerry too. You are becoming the belle of the pear. It's becoming your forte and signature piece I think. Good for you. Take care.

RH Carpenter said...

RH Carpenter said...
