‘Crow Court’ juried into Crow Show


I am honored to announce that my photography-based abstract was selected for the 2022 Crow Show in Arts Illiana Gallery in Terre Haute, Indiana. I created this graphic in nature piece I titled Crow Court during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.

My entry is an 8×10 dye sublimation print on HD metal, floated off an acrylic backdrop. I created the abstraction by manipulating my photograph of a patch of Crown Vetch, another invasive species. (Coincidence: Crow vs. Crown, Covid vs. Corvid, what a difference one letter makes!)

By definition, crow court is judge, jury and executioner. The crows circle and punish another crow that has committed a crime, such as stealing food from younger crows.

Arts Illiana’s fourth biennial Crow Show opened Jan. 21 with a reception in the gallery at 23 N. Sixth St. in downtown Terre Haute. The exhibit can be viewed during the gallery’s regular hours — 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays — through March 18. Admission is free.

Sixty-five art pieces were selected for this year’s Crow Show by guest curators and Indiana State University alums Haley Burton and Marquise Gibbs. The 44 featured artists hail from Indiana, Illinois, California, Colorado, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts and Canada.

A closing reception is set for March 18.

‘Party Girl’ stepping out around town


“Party Girl,” formerly titled Midnight Revelry.

This midnight reveler is still gallivanting about Terre Haute.

Community Theatre of Terre Haute, Feb. 2019

“Party Girl,” my photography-based abstraction on glossy paper, is strutting her stuff in the Community Theatre of Terre Haute through Feb. 26.

She then dances her way over to  The Gallery in Clabber Girl Museum in Terre Haute to celebrate Mardi Gras during River City Art Association’s “March ARTmania” show  March 1-29.

Psychedelic Weed

Also in Community Theatre, “Psychedelic Weed” on metallic paper will follow “Party Girl” to the “ARTmania” celebration in the Clabber Girl hot spot.

Another presentation of “Party Girl”  on high gloss aluminum also is the life of the party in my one-woman show  on display now through mid-June in Arts Illiana’s community outreach gallery in the Country Club of Terre Haute.

Her entourage includes several of my photography-based digital art abstractions that you’ll find here on my website: “Angry Peacock,” “Disturbance in The Force,” “Jazz and Blues,” “The Spark,” “The Scare,” “Orbs Kaleid,” “Dilly Dilly,” “Apache,” “Something Blue,” “Middle Child Born on the Libra-Scorpio Cusp,” “Blossoming Madly,” “Toward the Light,” and my Crow Show piece titled “Approaching the Drop Zone.”
