For the past 5 years, I am proud to say I have been juried into a prestigious Art show called Art Comes Alive. ADC, Art Design Consultants, Inc. in Cincinnati, OH sponsors Art Comes Alive, an annual fine art contest & exhibit that awards the best emerging and professional artists working in North America. The selected artists who are showcased in a final exhibit here in Cincinnati and are also awarded prizes including: purchase awards, gallery contracts, publishing contracts, solo/group shows, publicity, and cash prizes. This year, I won two awards; gallery representation and a group show. The invitation to the group show is above. I am very happy to be exhibiting with Bonita Williams Goldberg, Diane Seeman and Helene Steele at the YWCA Women’s Art Gallery. The YWCA Women’s Art Gallery was established in 1993 to empower local women artists. Although primarily serving the Greater Cincinnati area, the gallery has been proud to host several shows featuring women artists from around the world. As a forum for women’s issues relating to important YWCA programs and services, the gallery has sponsored photographic exhibits on the topics of domestic violence, breast cancer, and women and aging. It is the only gallery in Greater Cincinnati exclusively for women’s art. Admission to the Women’s Art Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, call the YWCA at 513-241-7090. The opening reception is Friday, January 19th, from 6-8pm. I hope you are able to join me for the opening but the show runs through April 16, 1018. If you get a chance to see the show, please let me know what you think!
