‘Jazz and Blues’ on display at Greek’s Pizzeria – Terre Haute


Excited that my “Jazz and Blues” diptych will be displayed in Greek’s Pizzeria at 600 Wabash Ave. in Terre Haute for a few months. Thank you owner Justin Fox!

Jazz by Sheila K. Ter Meer

“Jazz” received a Third Place in an exhibition during Union Hospital’s 125th anniversary celebration in 2017.

“Blues,” created using the same photographic image, also is floated off white acrylic.

Both photography-based abstract art pieces were created using a photo I made of a flower on a cactus that only blooms once at year and at night!

‘Voodoo’ and ‘Flood of Emotions’ receive awards in Abstract April show


It is a great honor to receive recognition for my photography-based abstracts in the Abstract April show on display through April 30, 2022, at the Covered Bridge Art Gallery in Rockville, Indiana.

Judge Cheryl Harris, a professional designer, illustrator, fine artist and muralist from Covington, Indiana, awarded my ‘Voodoo’ First Place in the Photography (Digitally Enhanced) category and Best of Show!

(April 30 update: I was pleasantly surprised at the closing reception and awards ceremony to learn that “Voodoo” will have a new home with a Rockville art collector!)

I created my entry using a photograph I made of a sunrise over Kentucky Lake. It is a dye sublimation process on high gloss HD metal with a silver flush mount presentation.

In addition, my ‘Flood of Emotions’ received a Third Place in the same category. It is another one-of-a-kind creation using the same photograph of Kentucky Lake. It also is my first image I presented on textured metal and then had it float-mounted off a brushed aluminum background.

Rockville is in Parke County, Indiana, the Covered Bridge Capital of the World.
