‘Approaching the Drop Zone’ among works in Crow Show 2018


Approaching the Drop Zone

I am honored to have a digital art entry in Crow Show 2018, which opens at 6 p.m. today, Feb. 2, in Arts Illiana Gallery at 23 N. Sixth St. in Terre Haute.

“Approaching the Drop Zone,” a photography-based abstraction on metal, presented on a black acrylic float mount, is among the exhibition of 2-D and 3-D crow-themed art selected by guest curator Jeff Scher.

This piece originated from my photographic image of a magnolia bloom. In its altered state, stealth bombers swoop in over their target under the cloak of darkness on a winter’s night in the city of Terre Haute.

The opening coincides with Terre Haute’s February First Friday theme, Love Downtown.

“The crows seem to love downtown, and visitors to Crow Show 2018 will love viewing the renderings from artists across North America,” says Arts Illiana in a press release for the Terre Haute Tribune-Star.

93 pieces were submitted by 53 artists from 8 states. Artist Jeff Scher chose 62 works of art by 41 artists from 7 states.

“Scher is a painter and experimental filmmaker. His work is in the permanent collection at museums, among them the Museum of Modern Art, and has been screened at film festivals around the world, including opening night at the New York Film Festival,” states the Arts Illiana press release. “He has also created work for The New York Times, The New Yorker Magazine, IFC, HBO, PBS and the Sundance Channel. He also has made music videos for Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and others.

“He most recently animated the story of a Holocaust survivor for an HBO original documentary, which had its premier at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in Manhattan along with an exhibit of the original artwork. He teaches at the School of Visual Arts and at N.Y.U. Tisch School of the Arts, and is a guest artist this semester at Parsons School of Design.”

RCAA spring membership show in April at Clabber Girl Museum, reception April 7


Through the syc - a-mores by Sheila K. Ter MeerThis show includes my third Dresser’s Legacy photograph, “Through the syc – a-mores …” and my abstract digital art piece, “(Lavender Blue) Dilly Dilly.”

My entry “Through the syc – a-mores …” was awarded an Honorable Mention in the 2016 TREES Inc. photography contest, “Bicentennial TREES: Celebrating Terre Haute’s Canopy,” also the Vigo County Public Library’s Bicentennial Legacy Project sanctioned by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission.
The image features the sycamore trees in the sculpture “A Song For Indiana” by Teresa Clark and a nearby sycamore in Fairbanks Park at Terre Haute framed by the sheet music to the official Indiana state song, “On the Banks of the Wabash, Far Away,” by Indiana composer and Terre Haute native son Paul Dresser.

(Lavender Blue) Dilly Dilly I created using a photograph of wildflowers I had captured in May near my rural Indiana home.

A spring show by River City Art Association will be featured April 7-28 in The Gallery at Clabber Girl Museum, 900 Wabash Ave., in Terre Haute.

An opening reception to meet many of the artists is set for 6 to 8 p.m. April 7.

More than 25 works will showcase the diverse talents of the art group, including a 24- by 36-inch acrylic on Masonite by RCAA founding member Monty “Indiana” Jones of Terre Haute.

Jones said friend and photographer Brendan Kearns of Terre Haute provided the image for him to use as reference for his painting, thus the title “B.K.’s Doe.”

RCAA vice president Todd Stokes often captures the bold statement of the trees in his Dennison, Illinois, woods. This show will feature his photographic work, “Autumn Beech.”
