Evergreen Retirement Community, located at 230 West Galbraith Road, former residence of the Phillip Meyer family, offers a secure and nurturing environment for its residents. This makes it a perfect setting for the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor society to exhibit their work in their Sixth Annual Colorburst Exhibit.

The opening reception will be held Sunday, May 4th from noon until 4:00p.m., offering guests an excellent opportunity to meet the artists and tour the beautiful facility and grounds. The exhibit will be open daily from noon until 5:00p.m. through June 15th, with a GCWS artist on site each weekend to answer questions and assist with purchases of artwork.

Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society artists work in all types of watercolor and water media, including acrylic, casein and gouache. Members meet monthly at the Cincinnati Art Club, 1021 Parkside Place in Mt. Adams.

Newly appointed president, Shirley Knollman says,"Members look forward to their monthly meetings as a way to grow in their art journey with speakers and demonstrations for enrichment. Education is an important focus of this group; the society also assists a high school senior each spring with a scholarship to help further their art career. Colorburst is a major exhibit for members to display their work from year to year."

Sharon Cranston, liaison for Evergreen Retirement Community, says "This exhibit benefits both communities by allowing the artists to exhibit in living spaces where works can be viewed morning and night by residents, their families and guests. It is enjoyed by many. This event opens doors to guests who might not otherwise get to see our facility."
