As the weather in southern Ohio turns beautiful, my thoughts switch to apple cider, Indian corn, pumpkins, and, of course, barns. Lots going on this autumn.
October 28 – Fundraiser for the Humane Society of Adams County, which promises to be a fun night. It’s called Howloween. Dinner and live auction of my eight paintings of the barns of Adams County, including one of the Smiley Farm barn, the oldest farm in Ohio, dating to a land grant from King George in 1772. The eighth generation is young, but interested in farming. The event begins at 6PM, GE Pavilion, 1200 Jaybird Rd, Peebles, OH. RSVP at 937 544 8585. $25 ticket includes dinner. A worthy cause!

November 16 – Open house at our co-op gallery. I’ll be doing a palette knife demo of a barn painting. The reception features wine and food – from 5 to 8PM. I might also do a demo on a Saturday in November or December.
November 17. Art North Art Show. My painting, American Legion, was accepted into this juried competition, held at the Westheimer Gallery, Sharonville Cultural Center, 11165 Reading Rd, Sharonville, 45241. Reception – food and drinks – from 5:30 to 8:30, November 17. Open to public.
December 7. A silent auction fundraiser for Sharon Woods Historic Heritage Village. This will be held at our artist co-op gallery in Mason and will feature a piece done by nearly two dozen of our artists, including one from me. Includes jewelry, photography, ceramics, watercolors, acrylics, oils, and more. Part of the proceeds will go to the village. Wine and food will be provided.
Greene County Barn Paintings – Hopefully my 15 paintings of Greene County barns will be held at Caesar Creek Vineyards and Winery next spring. TBA
For the month of October I will be a featured artist in our co-op gallery in Mason and my paintings will be displayed in the front window. I’ve included a few new ones, some larger pieces but all barns. Four will not be for sale, saving them for an all-Ohio series, a traveling exhibit of about two dozen barn paintings in a fundraiser in 2018-2019. The address of the gallery is 105 E. Main St, Mason, OH 45040. Some of my paintings are inside, but the ones in the window have trouble competing with the glass for a good photo.
