Lively Lemurs

June 5, 2022

By Janet Dodrill

Wonderful Live Lemur Animal Life Drawing Session with @animallifedrawing Holly Surplice at Duke Lemur Center @dukelemurcenter with host Sara Clark. Live Coquerel’s Sifaka Lemurs and Ring-Tailed Lemurs in the woods. We watched them eat, groom, rest and nap. Beautiful creatures, and 50% of the session was donated to support the center. The animals gave the nod that they wanted to be left alone, so we sketched from photos that the center provided of a Black and White Ruffed Lemur and Blue-Eyed Black Lemurs.

Waterloo Arts Gallery, Art of the Ornament 2021

December 11, 2021

By Janet Dodrill

This year I created and donated an ornament to the Waterloo Arts gallery auction fundraiser. The auction was to benefit Waterloo Arts.

The auction was held December 3, 2021 at Waterloo Arts, 15605 Waterloo Road, Cleveland, Ohio 44110. The creative, mostly handmade, ornaments can be viewed at https://waterlooarts.betterworld.org/auctions/art-ornament-2021

My design was based on the Guardians of Transportation –– a Cleveland landmark that are massive carved stone pylons which line the Hope Memorial Bridge downtown, and also the name of two Cleveland sports teams.

Peninsula Plein Air Competition Exhibit through November 22, 2021

October 23, 2021

By Janet Dodrill

Peninsula Art Academy (www.peninsulaartacademy.org) hosts a Plein Air competition, open to all artists, October 14-16, 2021. Paintings are created (or 2-D work) outdoors in natural available light over the course of three days (Thursday through Saturday) around prime landmarks and locations around beautiful Peninsula, Ohio including in the Cuyahoga National Park. By the end of the third day (Saturday) the work must be completed (two pieces allowed per artist), framed and ready to hang. The exhibit is on Sunday, October 17, 2021 directly following, with a reception and awards ceremony from 3-6pm. Juried by David Rankin.

This was my third year participating in the event, and though both demanding and challenging, it was a very enriching way to build my skills and technique, and the experience even allowed me to meet several local area artists. I created two paintings, Cedar Grove Cemetery, 16″ x 20″ oil on canvas, and GAR Hall, 8″ x 10″ gouache. I am looking forward to future events offered by the Peninsula Art Academy.

The exhibit runs October 18 – November 22, 2021
