There is an exhibit now in progress at Alley Art and Framing, featuring the Diverse Five, a group of artists in the Dayton/Springfield area, of which Karen Benedetti is one. Her new Music Series is featured along with Rina Thau's music related artwork as well.
Here are a few photos from the opening reception for this exhibit. It is not too late to go out to allley Art to see or purchase some of these paintings.

Sunday, September 27th, was the date of the Alzheimer's Walk at Old River Park. It was a beautiful day; and Karen joined Mike Crass and Donna, owners of Alley Fine Art/Framing in Springboro, OH, on the walk for Alzheimer's research, at Old River. Lots of people showed up, and there was even a band.
Donna and Mike just finished the walk.

Sunday was a very hot day for Art on the Commons in Kettering, Ohio, but that didn't stop thousands of people from coming to the show. Art on the Commons is an annual Art's Festival which brings the national arts community to Dayton's doorstep. Artists whose talents range from fine art to pottery to crafts to jewelry. Each was there to display his or her artistic gifts to the public.
All in all, it was a very nice day for an art show. Karen and her husband went out for pizza afterwards, with her studio partner, Sharon and her friend, Francis. It was a lovely end to the day.
Booth 68 was Karen's residence for the day. Many sweat droplets were shared at this space only a stone's throw from the fountains at the Kettering Commons.
Karen and Dick talked with a lot of friends. One of them was Rosemary Starr, a friend of theirs from the University of Dayton "Learning in Retirement" program.
Here is a photo, of the proud new owner of one of Karen's paintings.

Here are some pictures from my opening with George Armstrong at Bear's Mill. We had a wonderful opening, on a beautiful evening.
The weather was nice, and refreshments were served on the deck. George's Armstrong's homemade salsa was the hit of the evening!

Monday night, Rosie Huart and I hosted the opening for our newest exhibit, "Soul and Spirit."
Rosie and I are dear friends with similar interests and styles which are complimentary to each others' work—one of the reasons we love partnering up.
As she and I wandered through the exhibit, chatting with patrons, fans and friends, I realized how well we balance each other. Every time I felt like I couldn't quite answer a question appropriately, Rosie was there to back me up. She even brought music, helping to set the stage for this great opening.
Over the years, she has introduced me to many people who have brought much value to my life... I am always impressed with her, and always grateful to call her my friend.
