Senior Center Displays Cincinnati Landmarks Art

A new display of watercolors featuring well-known landmarks of Cincinnati is in the halls of the Anderson Township Senior Center through this month. Painted by the participants of the Thursday Watercolor Group, subjects such as the Cincinnati City Hall, the Cincinnati Zoo, the fountain at Fountain Square, Findlay Market, Music Hall and the Roebling Bridge are captured in both day and night scenes. 

Styles of painting vary. Denise Wynett’s painting “Procter & Gamble Headquarters” is a dramatic angular image; Cincinnati City Hall was painted from a photo taken at 4 a.m. and is intense with strong contrasts of light and dark.  Marilyn Bishop’s “Findlay Market” captures the hustle bustle of the shoppers.  Lew Ivanovich chose to paint an evening outdoor gathering in front of Music Hall.  Thirteen paintings are included in the exhibit. 

The artists gather every Thursday at the Anderson Township Senior Center and complete monthly assignments (one of which is the subject of the display). The gathering also includes critiques, live instruction and video teaching in an atmosphere of encouragement and fun. The group is open to all skill levels.  

Time is 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on a “drop in” basis. For more information, visit the center at 7970 Beechmont Avenue or call 474-3100. Hours are weekdays 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
