Evergreen Retirement Community, what a neat place. There was such a buzz coming from the hallway where the show began. The hallway took you to the entrance for their dinning room. More specifically a dining room that you had to have reservations to! Families coming to visit their loved ones dressed in their Sunday best waiting to be called to lunch by the host and hostess that seated them.
"Robinson's sensitivity to color really captures the look, smell and sound of the surf." -Bruce Erikson, Xavier University
"Filled with dramatic space and beautiful handling of texture through light and color, Ammerman's painting is stunning." - Bruce Erikson, Xavier University
Third place went to Sue Grogan's painting Springtime.
"Grogan creates a beautiful composition of flowers and statuary through painterly mark-making and an abundance of luminous washes." -Bruce Erikson, Xavier University
"The saturation of Carpenter's flamingo is extremely eye-catching." - Bruce Erikson, Xavier University
"I really enjoyed both of Junker's pieces, but felt the mood captured in the vertical landscape was terrific." - Bruce Erikson, Xavier University
And Yuriko Kudo recieved the last Honorable Mention for Woman at Shaker Village.
"The strength of drawing and difficulty of subject matter of Kudo was also quite strong." - Bruce Erikson, Xavier University
Deb Ward's Red Roses on Grandma's Quilt was stunning. I feel this painting speaks volumes of Deb's love for her grandmother's keepsakes.
There were lots of other fabulous paintings by the members of GCWS. You can view the show noon to 4pm daily until October 31st.
