Black Friday At Luschek Studios

The scene is a mad house as shoppers wait outside my studio to get great deals on paintings. I did a screen grab from the local news reporting at the scene. I swear, this is totally real.

Unfortunately the studio is not open today, so all those full blooded American shoppers will have to wait to buy their Luschek originals until next week. I do have a few local places offering my work at very reasonable prices. Of course anything on my site is available for sale.

Rottinghaus Gallery & Custom Framing has some of my smaller paintings for sale for the Christmas holidays. Including the small little diptych below of a nut and bolt separated by a wrench. It is a study in male/female relationships in case you were confused.
They are framed in two cute antique frames.

I do still have some work hanging at the Greenacres Art Center. While the show is closed, you always can call to make an appointment. 

The other big event is
The Panorama of Cincinnati Art XXIX

Opens 5-8 p.m., Friday December 05 | $100.
 The Cincinnati Art Galleries hosts the opening reception of Panorama of Cincinnati Art. The exhibition features paintings by artists of Cincinnati's Golden Age and some of Cincinnati's top contemporary painters. Reservations are required for the opening night at $100 per person. Reservations can be made by phone. The exhibition is a benefit for the Taft Museum of Art. A portion of reservation and painting sales will go towards supporting the museum. Exhibition is free and open to the public after Dec. 5. Through Dec. 31. Gallery hours: 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday- Friday; 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday.

My Bengals painting will be in the show and illustrated in the fancy catalog. The Bengals are doing pretty well this year, so you really owe it to yourself to own this piece of history.

The Last Big Secret

Tomorrow is the last Secret Artworks event.
While I can't show you the card I did this year, it being a Secret and all, this is the card I did last year of a creepy Mr. Clean Doll with a light bulb hanging over his head.
