The show opens on Oct. 16th and runs until Nov. 15th, with various special events held throughout.
First, What is the Greenacres Artists Guild? From their website:
"Greenacres discovered that there was a void in the Cincinnati area for artists who are committed to the principles, methods, and traditions of Cincinnati’s Golden Age. Therefore, we teamed up with elite professional living artists from the Cincinnati area who are focused on the traditional approach to art and formed the Greenacres Artists Guild. Each member of the Greenacres Artists Guild was personally selected and invited to join the organization based on their abilities and approach to art."Of course you wanna see the show but I imagine your main concern is "when will Richard Luschek be there?!"

Here are a list of time when I will be there in my fancy clothes, or there actually painting- in my fancy clothes. I have six pieces in the show including the one being held by Eva Gabor in the photo above.
Greenacres is a very lovely place to visit on its own. It is a wonderful old Restored English Norman style manor house. It has formal gardens and fountains, a greenhouse and old barns with horses.
8400 Blome Road, Cincinnati, OH 45243 United States,Occasionally people get scared away by the signage and the appearance of a fancy residence. But look for the signs directing you to the Arts Center.
Opening Night is this Friday, Oct. 16th of the Greenacres Artists Guild 'Fresh from the Farm' Art Show. This event is free and open to the public. Please join us from 6-9pm at the Greenacres Arts Center as we celebrate some of the finest Cincinnati artists. Log on to www.green-acres.org or call 513-891-4227 for more information. Facebook Event

Join Greenacres Artists Guild members Will Hillenbrand, Clem Robins, CF Payne, Loren Long, and Richard Luschek as they highlight the world of illustration in a family-fun fashion! Watch Clem and Richard work on art right before your eyes. Learn about the world of sketching with CF Payne. Hear Loren Long talk about how Otis came to be, and Will Hillenbrand speak about the process of creating picture books. Attendees will also be encouraged to enjoy hayrides, story time, book signings, make and take art activities, and more!
This event is free. Ill probably be drawing monsters or knights or knights being eaten by monsters.
The next two events are the ones I am most looking forward to, but they do cost some money.
Greenacres Art and Beer Tasting Tour
Friday, October 30 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Local breweries will be there to offer tastings and discuss their beer. Plenty of food and drink and art and me. I will be painting a still life- set up very close to one of the breweries so I can drink and paint. Should be interesting. Tickets are $50 and can be bought at the door or ordered here. Feel free to come in costume, as this is the day before Halloween.
Greenacres Art and Coffee and Tea Tasting Tour
November 14 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Instead of being tipsy on beer, I will be all hopped up on coffee, probably painting a still life with some coffee. Local coffee roasters will be there with coffee and treats. Tickets are $20. They can be bought at the door or ordered here.
