Creative Harvest opening pictures

Valerie with Amor Aeterna

The opening last Friday for the Creative Harvest 2009 exhibit sponsored by Stoner Creek Arts was as delightful as last year's. There were 33 artists participating including Cliff Sullivan, Rebecca Chamberlain (of the Ladies Historical Tea blog) and Sylvia Zingg (a fellow Berea College graduate). It was a delight to see to see them at the opening. As you can see in the photo below, the event was well attended.

In the photo below, a view of Cliff Sullivan's Morning of Reflection. Click to enlarge.

When artist bloggers meet: In this photo, Valerie and I are with Rebecca Chamberlain of the Ladies Historical Tea blog and the Bluegrass Drawing Society. We have a dear friend Polly Singer in common and we all have a great love of Pre-Raphaelite art in common as well. It was a lot of fun chatting with a fellow Dark Shadows fan. Rebecca's Ladies Historical Tea Society blog can be seen here:

If you missed the opening, fear not. The Creative Harvest exhibit runs from 2 October to 19 December 2009, so there is plenty of time to see it yet. Not only are there some very lovely paintings on display but also some bronze sculptures and other 3D work. While there, be sure to have a look at the permanent Bourbon County exhibit in the front part of the Hopewell Museum and catch a glimpse of the rich history of Paris and the surrounding communities of Bourbon County.

Thanks for posting this..It was so lovely meeting Valerie. Polly and I feel that you would be a perfect guest for next year's Victorian Ghost Story Tea so I want to book you in advance. I posted about our event at the Tea Society Blog, and Polly shared some wonderful tales of the activities that you documented at Loudon House..How perfectly eerie...
