CENTRAL OHIO WATERCOLOR SOCIETY 2019
Viviian entered two paintings in this exhibit
The Central Ohio Watercolor Society show was on exhibit at The Ohio State University Faculty Club until July 7.
I had these two works on exhibit.
Below are the two images of those paintings with the juror Tom Schroeder's comments.
" The wispy sprays of pine laden with snow are wonderfully suggested in this piece. The movement of the brushstrokes work very well to capture the texture. This also has a magical abstract quality. Lots to feel with this one"
VIEW TO THE NARROWS
" I can relate to the lighting of this winter scene. The moment is the brief golden hour which is much less than an hour".
It is the instant of the day when it actually looks like it might be kind of warm out, but we know it isn't. The values are well placed to help frame and contrast."
Vivian is pictured here with her painting, "Warm Current", which won the Ohio Watercolor Society Bronze Medal, at the 41st Annual Juried Exhibition at the Florence O"Donnel Wasmer Gallery, Ursuline College, Pepper Pike, Ohio. Following this it travelled to various venues throughout Ohio.
These works were exhibited at the Mansfield 7th Annual May Show, May 4 to July 2, 2019. "Red Iris" pastel, "Waterpark" watercolor, and "Creekside" watercolor, were accepted into this show.
"Summer Climb",a watercolor, won "Best In Show" at the Upper Arlington Art League Show at Mill Run Lutheran Church during May 2019.
"Vivian Ripley's Endless Passage" was also an article in the Columbus Monthly Magazine, May 2018. Pictured here are "Warm Current", "Master Guide and Trapper", and "The Artist's Studio".
