coming up in march


Barb Carmen Pet Portraits Exhibit

next month at The Coffee Peddlar in Harrison, Ohio.

These are images of some of the fur and feathered friends I’ve had visit my studio, including work I’ve done for the rescue For the Love of Kittens and for Canines for Christ. On display will be wood prints, framed art, canvas thin wraps, and metal prints.

The exhibit will be on display March 6th through the 31st
during the Peddlar’s normal business hours.

Opening Night is Friday, March 6th, from 6 to 8 p.m.

It’s a casual event and all are welcome. I will be there and, if you’re reading this and live close by, I hope you’ll stop in.

I want to thank The Coffee Peddlar and owners Pat Frey and Gerilyn Jobe (you can read their story here) for making this possible. Special thanks to Peddlar staff member and friend Anna Gabbard who coordinated everything and worked out the details.

Happy Valentines Day

to my pet-loving friends!

It’s hard to believe we’re already this far into February. I hope that 2020 has been a great “new year” for you and your family and friends (so far!). 

I want to take a moment and let you know about an event coming up this weekend.

On Saturday, February 15th, Clothes Mentor of Hyde Park (Cincinnati, OH) will host a special

“Puppy Love” Day.

Customers are invited to stop in anytime with their furry family members for a day of shopping. There will be doggie treats, free doggie bandanas, and a doggie photo booth — all courtesy of Clothes Mentor. 

If you’re a dog lover, this is a great opportunity for you and your pet to get out and make some new friends!

I am really excited about this event for two reasons.

  • First, the store will be accepting donations all day for the Save the Animals Foundation, a local nonprofit, no-kill shelter — a very worthwhile cause. 
  • And second . . .

    I get to be a part of it all!

    I will be at the store sharing my pet portrait work and my special love for dogs. I hope you’ll stop by my table for a chat.

Clothes Mentor
is a first-class women’s resale store. They specialize in buying and selling gently used current-style brand name and designer fashions and accessories.

Customers looking for great clothing at a great price will not be disappointed. And customers with great used clothing to sell receive cash on-the-spot. No waiting for consignment payments.

The Hyde Park Clothes Mentor is located at 3880-E Paxton Avenue in Cincinnati, Ohio. It will be open this Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. For more information, check out the store website or call 513.871.0052.

I hope we’ll see you this Saturday!
