For the second year my work has been accepted into the Woman’s Art Club juried show!
The reception was held May 3 with a good turnout and awards given. As I walked in I met the husband of the club’s president who was quick to inform me that unless they had called me, I had not won a prize – thus, I walked in very dejected that I was a Big Loser! (This is a joke – he saw my license plate which is MS LUCKY and then he asked me just how lucky I was – had I won a prize!)
The GCWS was very well represented at the show – Tamara Adams (large portrait, which is her speciality), Susan Grogan (cat on yupo - a surprise to me), Carolyn Hibbard (a beautiful, soft, pastel floral), Susan Hoffheimer (great fun – an older gentleman who has “still got it”!!), Sharon Roeder (a Venice scene on Aquabord - which invited quite a few comments), Ginny Tilbury (stylized figure), Barbara Zentgraf (who won an award for her Maine beach scene in soft, pastel-like colors) and myself. There were quite a few others who I knew who won awards, also.
This show will hang through May 17 and is open Thursday through Sunday from 1-4 p.m. at the WACC “Barn” in Mariemont, OH (6980 Cambridge Avenue).
If you get a chance, go see it – it’s really a great show – lots of diversity in medium, sizes, prices!
RICHESON 75: STILL LIFE AND FLORAL – 2009
WOW! I’M EXCITED!!
Three of my pieces have been accepted into one of the Richeson 75 shows – Still Life and Floral.
These shows are sponsored by the Jack Richeson Company and the Richeson School of Art and Gallery. The paintings will be hung and juried in their gallery in Kimberly, WI. Then the paintings will appear in their online gallery as well as a catalog published for the show.
I would have been excited to have one accepted, but all three that I entered! Pinch me, I must be dreaming!
Take a look at the show currently “hanging” – (www.richeson75.com) to see Chris Beck’s work (http://chrisbeckstudio.blogspot.com).
I’ll let you know when I see the Still Life and Floral show on line, or you can check the Richeson website in a couple of weeks.
