Pompeii Art Show

Two days ago I received an email that I have been hoping for, though not really expecting.  My pastel, Road to Vesuvius, was accepted into the Pompeii Art Show at the Cincinnati Museum Center.  Only 25 pieces were chosen for this show, so I'm very honored to be participating.  The show will take place on Thursday, June 21 at 6 pm at the Museum Center.  It's a funder raiser for the Center, so tickets for the reception (which also includes entrance into A Day in Pompeii exhibit) are $35 or $30 for members.  All of the artwork will be part of another fundraiser, a silent auction, with 50% of the proceeds going to the Center.  In addition, the top three chosen by the audience will be featured on a poster promoting the exhibit and offered for sale in the Center's gift shop.  If you would like to go to the reception, tickets can be purchased through the Museum Center's web site - I hope to see you there!

And as promised, I put together a short slide show showing the work in progress.  This is the first time I've remembered to take photos throughout, and the first time I've done this much pre-planning.  A few of the slides are a bit off center - it's hard to get everything in the same spot, especially since I have to move the camera out of the way each time due to limited work space.  And I apologize for the small size of the video, anything larger didn't want to upload.  Obviously I still have  few kinks to work out.  The accompanying music is an instrumental by U2, titled Near the Island.

  3. Thank you ladies! Sylvia, who says artists are grown up? LOL
