Artist Reception & Art Sale
Saturday, October 22 @ 6 – 8 PM
Sunday, October 23 @ 11 AM – 2 PM

Calling all artists! Come and paint the lovely settings and quaint village architecture nestled in this quiet corner east of Cincinnati. Parks, walking trails and overlooks are abundant within the borders of the Village, but you can also create your art in any location you choose within the I-275 loop around Cincinnati. Your imagination will be supercharged by what you see. After the plein air painting, we will host a welcoming reception and public exhibition to show and sell your work!

ABOUT THE JUDGE: Diane Young was born in Waynesburg, Kentucky. From an early age she began to seek beauty and peaceful places which called her to come and look – in the forest, by a quiet creek, even in cow country. This is where her journey began and where her heart’s desire to be a landscape painter was born.

Since then Diane has spent daily hours in the field observing nature, the effects of light, the changing atmosphere and the spirit of the place. She has painted hundreds of paintings en plein air while looking at the scenes that make her heart sing.

She works to orchestrate the right elements to paint believable paintings which take the viewer to that very spot. Through her paintings she asks you to walk through the scene as she did, to see the beauty and be at peace!

Diane has deepened her understanding by studying the master plein air and realist painters of the turn of the century: Willard Metcalf, Edward Redfield and Hugh Bolton Jones are among her favorites.

Her passion to paint keeps her going and keeps her growing. This relentless desire to produce beautiful paintings has become her most treasured gift,and she longs to share it with others.
