Again I am honored to have my contribution to the visual arts recognized and validated by professional jurors in Indiana and Illinois.
My digital artwork Angry Peacock received First Place and The Woods Enchanted received Second Place in the River City Art Association 8th Annual Juried Exhibition in Terre Haute, Indiana.
The exhibition can be viewed through Aug. 26 in the First Financial Bank in downtown Terre Haute.
A really humbling personal honor came at the end of the awards ceremony when RCAA founding member Monty “Indiana” Jones and other members of the Terre Haute-based artists group voted me recipient of the Marty Martinez Contributory Award.
This special award is given for an RCAA member’s dedicated service throughout the year, in memory of the late founding member and owner of the Raven Art Gallery in Terre Haute.
I’m so excited. I just can’t hide it. Received this email notification yesterday that 2 of my entries will be featured in the 2016-17 “Indiana, Naturally” exhibition in the Indianapolis International Airport!! The inaugural exhibition in 2014, I had one entry accepted.
I created Dogwood Forest just this spring and I will post it later but till then, here is a link to images I posted in 2012.
