Two of my paintings were selected for the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning juried alumni show at Malton Gallery. What an honor to be included in this award winning college show.
Just finishing a commission for a home in Seabrook Island, South Carolina.
Fun evening at Columbus Art Museum fund raiser with two new happy collectors.
Congratulations to Mary Martin and her staff. For the fourth year in a row they have been selected as best gallery in South Carolina and one of the top twenty-five galleries in America for 2016. It’s an honor to be included in such a prestigious gallery.
Each year The Artist’s Magazine has an international competition looking for the best of the best. This year I entered for the first time, and was chosen as one of the finalists out of over 6,100 submissions. Yea!
David Dunlap and I at Art of the Carolinas annual art materials conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. What a wonderful experience to rub shoulders with so many great artists and stock up on art supplies from so many different companies. Like being a kid in a candy store.
Steve, Bob , and Dave artists at Essex Studios. Up to no good with trouble in mind, and having a wonderful time doing it.
Art in Bloom at the museum invites noted local artists to paint in the main hall. All sales benefit the museum, which is a good thing.
Art come in many forms. Here is my Granddaughter, Corinne. How lovely; she makes it seem so effortless!
My first time at the Fall show in Hyde Park. This is the premier one day out door show in the city, and I earned an overall booth award. Yea!
The Friday Nighters are a Symphony support group that recently had their 50th reunion. What a grand party. (by the way; I joined awhile ago, but was not a founding member.)
Patty Crotty and I at the Washington Park Art Gallery opening. It is wonderful how the park has been renovated, and is now the center of multiple art events: music, dance, and painting. Life is good in Cincinnati.
Spending much of the summer at Lake Lorelei cottage. Soooo glad I have a studio here to paint.
Traveling with friends out West. Went to these beautiful sandstone canyons. Wow!
Having a great time at the opening of the show for Plein Air painters of Ohio. Good time had by all.
Even though it is difficult to clean-up my working studio, it is worth it when new and long-time friends and collectors come to visit. This time the art walk coincided with the Arts Sampler week-end; so it was even more fun.
Had a fun day doing an instructional demo for Cincinnati Woman’s Club. They are lovely hosts, and most appreciative. Here is a comment from one of their emails: “If you’ve read Carolyn Scheve’s recent emails, she has one that reminds us that Trish Weeks will be our next CWC Visiting Painting Instructor. Enthusiasm like Carolyn’s bears repeating: Trish Weeks will be doing a demo this Tuesday even though she has a sprained ankle—she says she will be fine! She uses thick oils and paints with her palette knife resulting in bold strokes of vibrant and fabulous colors depicting lush landscapes, etc. I cannot wait to watch and listen and I hope you will be there to experience Trish’s talent and charisma!“
David Shuley and I at the open house for his new financial services office. David is an art collector with multiple of my paintings at his home and in the new office.
My cold wax experience at the Art Materials Exhibition in Atlanta, Ga. It was like being a kid in a toy store. I talked with the product experts and took workshops to experience new materials. Look out for more new art with all new materials...
Enjoying the opening reception with Nancy Achberger at the Cinti Art Club Signature Member Show at the club’s gallery in Mt. Adams.
