Solo show in Arts Illiana Community Outreach Gallery, Terre Haute


Arts Illiana COG Corporate Square mid-June to mid-December 2020

Here is a sneak peek at my solo show in the Arts Illiana Community Outreach Gallery at Corporate Square in Terre Haute, Indiana.

A total 22 pieces are featured on both levels of this open entryway to the complex on Ohio Boulevard. Several have received awards and honors at local, regional and national juried shows.

The COG is managed by River City Art Association of which I have been a member since January 2013, when my professional artistic journey began in Indiana and Illinois.

In the beginning my shows featured representational photographic images. To set my artistic license apart from contributions by other artists  in the Wabash Valley, my focus shifted to creating one-of-a-kind photography-based abstractions from my photographic images.

Since I am not a professional photographer, this shift to expressionism is now my passion with an occasional “happy accident” in realism.

I am honored to announce that guest curator Michael Ornstein, painter and actor best known for his role as Chucky in Sons of Anarchy,  selected my photography-based abstraction “Fireworks” for the “Red” exhibition through Oct. 18 in Arts Illiana Gallery in Terre Haute.

The “Red” exhibition call was open to artists in North America. Artists from 13 states submitted 159 works of art.

Seventy-two of those submitted works of art from 59 artists were selected for the show by Ornstein, whose works are featured in the North Gallery at Arts Illiana during the run of the show.

The closing reception with awards by Ornstein will be 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 18.
