Luschek Art Opening-palooza

Today dropped off my final of 3 paintings which will appear in 3 different Art Openings in Cincinnati this weekend- one on Friday and two on Saturday.

The first opening on Friday is with the OPA, a national collection of painters promoting excellence in representational art. This is the first time I have enters an OPA show, it being local was what got me to finally give it a shot. At least 5 other Cincinnati painters were also honored by being accepted into this show.

"If Wine is Sublime..." showcases rare books, maps, and artworks all about grapes, vineyards, and wine. The books date from the late 17th century to the present day and cover all aspects of grape growing, wine making, and medicinal usage of both the fruit and the fermented beverage. The gallery exhibition of art comes to the Lloyd from artists across the country and internationally and in a variety of media.
There is a wine tasting opening night, you have to call to register.
If you miss the opening, I suggest you stop by, the library is a hidden gem of books on science and botanical .

The Second show Saturday night I will have a painting in Cincinnati Art Club's big annual national juried art competition- Viewpoint. This show is getting better every year. The Art Club has been getting some very good judges. This year the judge is Cincinnati artist-illustrator, C. F. Payne.
