“Through the syc-a-mores …” goes to personal art collection


This is one of three Dresser’s Legacy pieces I created for Indiana’s Bicentennial which later received an Honorable Mention in the TREES Inc. Bicentennial Trees photography contest.

Description: Sycamore tree in fall framed by the sculpture “A Song For Indiana” by Terre Haute artist Teresa Clark located near the Paul Dresser Home in Fairbanks Park along the banks of the Wabash River, framed by Dresser’s sheet music that later became the Indiana State Song.

It is on display through Jan. 2 in Swope Art Museum Education Center as part of River City Art Association’s “Pearls of the Wabash” companion exhibit to a Smithsonian Institute Water/Ways exhibition in West Terre Haute, made possible by Indiana Humanities and hosted by RiverSCAPE in Terre Haute. After Jan. 2, it will be in the personal art collection of a Terre Haute resident.

The RCAA/Swope exhibit opened Nov. 20 and runs through Jan. 2. Of the 43 pieces by 16 RCAA artists I also have on display my Rivière Haute, a photograph I made in April 2013 of the flood in Fairbanks Park in Terre Haute where the Wabash River crested at 27 feet. Rivière Haute was later juried into the 2013 TREES Inc. “Trees and The River” photography contest.

Also in RCAA’s Pearls of the Wabash exhibit is the Dresser’s Legacy set titled My Indiana Home and Banks of the Wabash, Far Away that I created for Indiana’s Bicentennial. Also framed by the sculpture “A Song For Indiana” by Terre Haute artist Teresa Clark located near the Paul Dresser Home in Fairbanks Park along the banks of the Wabash River, framed by Dresser’s sheet music that later became the Indiana State Song.

A second RCAA reception for “Pearls of the Wabash” will take place 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 3 in the same Swope location during the Miracle on 7th Street event in downtown Terre Haute. A meet and greet with some of the artists will be Noon to 6 p.m. Dec. 4.

There you can also view my photography-based abstract “Wetland: “Flood of Emotions” on textured metal, floated off etched aluminum background.

New abstracts in ‘River Life’ show at Illinois gallery; Facebook Live event Oct. 17


“City in Pane,” as well as two new abstracts, “Flood of Emotions” and “Where Two Rivers Flow as One,” will be on display in the Gaslight Art Colony gallery in Marshall, Illinois Oct. 17 through Nov. 14.

A virtual opening for River City Art Association’s “River Life” membership show is set for 5 p.m. CDT Oct. 17 during the GAC gallery’s Facebook Live event.  My pieces and more than 40 other works in that show can be purchased on the website at gaslightartcolony.com

“City in Pane,” a giclee print on canvas, recently received two awards in photography. The building in this photograph reflects the Terre Haute, Indiana, landscape to the west where the Wabash River flows just beyond.

“Flood of Emotions” makes its debut in the ‘River Life’ membership show. The photography-based abstraction I created using my landscape photograph of a sunrise over Kentucky Lake.

“Where Two Rivers Flow As One,” another abstract previously titled “X Marks The Spot,” I created last year using my photograph of rooster tail feathers.
