A Big Week

This week is a pretty active one. I will have paintings in at least 5 local shows. If you want to attend any I will list them for you.

  • THE INDIAN HILL ART SHOW
    This is actually more of an art fair with a ton of artists set up throughout the Indian Hill Episcopal Church. It is a fund raiser, with a % of the sales going to the churches outreach programs.
    Indian Hill Church, 6000 Drake Road, Cincinnati, Oh 45243
    Friday, November 14 from 6 pm to 9 pm.
    Saturday, November 15 from 10 am to 2 pm.
    I have heard this is a quite an event. There will be free valet parking on Friday. There will be workers that will pick up and store work for you so you don't have to carry purchases. They will be accepting cash, checks and Visa/Master card.

  • SECRET ArtWorks Sale
    Friday, November 14, 2008
    6 - 9 p.m.
    Westin Hotel Ballroom, Downtown Cincinnati

    The 2008 Secret ArtWorks is a fund raising event featuring the exhibition and sale of 5” x 7” works of art from local, national and international artists. All works of art sell for $75 each. The ‘secret’ behind each piece is the identity of the artist – which is revealed after the work is purchased. Last year’s smashingly successful event was rated by CityBeat readers as top fundraiser of 2007!

    Secrets are out! You can view the Secret Works of Art here. I have 5 cards this year. This page is updated regularly so check back often! Click here.

  • Fund Raiser for "Friends of War Orphans"
    I have 3 paintings in this art auction benefit at the Starbucks in Old Montgomery (Montgomery Road near Montgomery Inn restaurant). I think there are around 10 artists involved in this event. Come buy some overpriced, over roasted coffee and check out the art.
    All of my paintings are 8x10 landscapes with a starting bid of $100, one of which has a bid on it already.
    You can click here to see the art.
    The works will be on display from Sat. November 1st through Sat. November 22nd. As in similar events, the bidding sheets will be up during the weeks that the show is on display, and the final bidding will take place on November 22nd, 2008 from 6:00-9:00 pm at a festive event.

  • Fun Razor for Women's Art Club Cultural Art Center
    Art Sale- Raffle - Silent Auction

    First annual fall fundraiser November 15, 6-9 p.m. Exciting evening of Jazz, light fare, and Art. Money raised from this event will benefit Phase Two of the renovation plan. On completion, we'll have more studio space to rent and an additional classroom.

    If you don't know, the second floor of this building is the space that Carl Samson and I have had our eye on to start a full time Classical Drawing and Painting School. It is a great space, and as it is a historic old barn, they need money to update and restore this building.

    It is not free, but $25 per person in advance, $30 at the door.

Richard - We were lucky enough to have purchased your "Study in Green" at the Artworks event. Would love to take a look at some of your other work sometime.

Great. That was one of the best ones I have done. Glad you like it.
I am at the studio a lot, so anytime you want to stop by to see what I am up to, email or call. I have work in Rottinghaus gallery in Obrienville now. A lot of it is small paintings that would make good holiday gifts.
