Last Saturday my husband and I went to the ViewPoint show, sponsored by the Cincinnati Art Club.  

The venue this year was Art Design Consultants - a beautiful venue at the far eastern edge of the City.

A view of a few of the art patrons.
I tried to get a couple photos of the venue itself - it began filling up shortly after we arrived, and I kept stopping to talk to people I knew, so I didn't get too many photos.

It always amazes me how many people I've come to know in the local "art world"!  Only problem is I usually don't get around the whole show because I'm always stopping and chatting.  I did walk around ADC completely, but I'm sure I still missed seeing a few of the paintings.

I also wore heels, not all that high, but high enough that after a while I could no longer feel my toes!  I was able to sit through the awards ceremony - and was happy to hear the names of several people I know called out!
One of the "rooms" set up around the outside edge of the facility.
Art Design Consultants places artwork in public and private venues, and I'm assuming that usually these walls in these "rooms" are set up with clients' artwork for viewing by possible buyers.  But right now these rooms are filled with ViewPoint artwork.

Another "room" - you can see one of the large windows.
Well, no award for me, but I thought it was cool that I was one of only 4 who had two works accepted into the show, and they hung mine together!  I think they kind of compliment each other and it's always interesting to see your work hung in a gallery setting - looks different than when it's hanging on the wall at home!
Here are my two paintings.

Congratulations, Deb. Looks like not many local watercolorists got in this time so it's even more or an honor to be chosen - and to have 2 paintings in! They look good together, maybe someone will fall in love with them and buy them both!
