Juror selects 3 photographs for Arts Illiana Gallery’s ‘Spaces & Places, Oh My . . .’

Here’s what’s happening Jan. 20-April 7, 2023: Guest juror Jamie Nichols selected 3 of my works out of 89 pieces entered for the first exhibition of 2023 in Arts Illiana Gallery at Terre Haute, Indiana.

Among the 58 works selected by Nichols for “Spaces & Places, Oh My . . .” is my City in Pane, a 14×20 giclee canvas, created during the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown in 2020 and pictured below at a 2021 Wabash Valley Art Guild Spring Show; and Wyoming Vista, a 12×20 landscape on high gloss metal with acrylic float, which received a 3rd Place in Sept. 2022 at Covered Bridge Art Association Gallery in Rockville, Indiana.

Also in “Spaces & Places” is my triptych on high gloss metal titled Approaching Fear Head-On, which illustrates Gephyrophobia, fear of crossing a bridge. It received a 3rd Place in an August 2022 juried exhibition hosted in Terre Haute by River City Art Association.


Wyoming Vista Third Place honor bittersweet

“Wyoming Vista” was awarded Third Place in the Photography category at the 2022 Fall Open Show scheduled Sept. 4-25 in the Covered Bridge Art Association Gallery at Rockville, Indiana. Thank you to ISU professor emeritus of art David Erickson, the show judge.

This awe-inspiring landscape from a 2020 motorcycle ride through the Beartooth Mountains with my Leroy is a dye sublimation print on aluminum and float-mounted off white acrylic.

I lost my Leroy to cancer August 24, so remembering one of the many experiences we shared in our 20 years together is now bittersweet.
