Having just returned from Cincinnati’s historic Eisele Gallery, where I was thankful for being invited to exhibit amongst other dignified artists, here are my impressions and highlights.
Firstly, our organizers OPA were very gracious and welcoming, and I would like to thank them for a successful event. I would also like to thank our sponsors and the hosts at the gallery for a wonderful turnout. Besides a successful opening night, all artists and collectors alike were treated to a painting demonstration by the Juror of Awards Carolyn Lewis. This was followed by a plain air painting outing at a charming village of Mariemont.
The goal for this year’s Eastern Regional was to assemble the finest display of representational oil paintings. The works from United States and Canada exemplified the highest quality in draftsmanship, color and composition.The awards were handed out that totaled in excess of $15,000 this year. Congratulations to the winners. Here are the winners along with some other pieces that I feel worth mentioning.
