2018 ANNUAL ART SHOW - AUGUST 4 - 12, 2018

Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society Annual Exhibit

The annual watercolor event of 2018 offers fine art watercolors in the new loft gallery at “The Barn” (Woman’s Art Club and Cultural Center) 6980 Cambridge Ave. in Mariemont, Ohio.  The doors open for the free public reception Sunday, August 5, 1-4p.m.  Just two weeks long, guests can enjoy the art beginning August 4 and continuing through August 12.  Weekend hours: 1-4 p.m.; Tuesday—Friday hours: 10 a.m. -2 p.m.

The 80-member Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society exhibit offers viewers a great variety of subjects and imaginative applications of the most challenging medium for works on paper.  Look for colorful landscapes, figures and flowers available for purchase.  Each painting is framed and ready for hanging.

Juror for the exhibit is Rachel Wolf, the editor of “Splash” a North Light publisher’s book showcasing the watercolor products of hundreds of artists throughout the world.  She will award three financial prizes plus several honorable mention ribbons.  Awards will be given during the reception.

A commission of 20 percent will benefit the Woman’s Art Club and Cultural Center which is a handsomely renovated dairy barn dedicated to teaching and displaying local visual and performing artists. Of special note this year, the upstairs loft, carved out of the existing barn structure, is accessible by elevator and is fully air-conditioned.

The Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society is a 16-year-old organization dedicated solely to painting in water media which includes watercolor and acrylic paint used in a variety of applications to paper or manufactured supports.  Members from the Tri-State convene monthly, March through December for watercolor presentations followed by studio time when members work on their own.  The location of the meetings is the Cincinnati Art Club, 1021 Parkside Place in Mt. Adams.  Guests are welcome to attend.
