Art Show Season

Fall is a busy time for art shows. So, if you have been thinking about how much you would love to drink cheap wine, eat cheese cubes and look at some art, then I have a few events for you!

43rd ViewPoint show at the Cincinnati Art Club
My painting A Monster Attacks at Breakfast is showing at the Cincinnati Art Club. You can see all the paintings in the show if you click here to see the slideshow.
I was also honored with the Viewpoint Chairperson Award. 
I did not get any photos of me receiving my award last Friday so here is another photo of me accepting an award.
Show continues weekends (Saturdays and Sundays)
November 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 2011

Indian Hill Church Art Show
I have done this show two other times. It is a pretty good show, though it can get crowded. They have a new  event this year that is pretty cool. Artists were asked to do a 6x8 painting, these "miniatures" will be on sale in a separate area. Here is mine.

Finally, I am in a secret art auction that is a fund raiser for LAM Foundation.
Here is the information for this event. I plan on being at the signing event on Thursday.
                             Who is the artist?

A charity/fine art show for which the artists will create an 8” x 10” unsigned original piece of fine art that may, or may not be in their style. (hence the Masquerade).

The signing of the artwork will take place on the last day of the show.

All artwork will be 8” x 10” and priced at $250 with half of the proceeds going to the LAM Foundation. The $250 price will be in effect until November 3rd when a silent auction will begin and end on Nov 10th.

To support the LAM Foundation Charity. (A lung disease striking mostly young women)
