Another honor for my photography-based digital art abstraction titled “Party Girl.”
On Aug. 3, I received a First Place at the River City Art Association 10th Annual Juried Exhibition awards ceremony in First Financial Bank at Terre Haute, Indiana.
Juror and artist David Erickson, also professor emeritus of art at Indiana State University in Terre Haute, selected the winners.
All 82 works by 29 artists in the exhibition remain on display during regular banking hours through Aug. 30. In September, “Party Girl” and other winning entries will be on display in First Financial’s Springhill Branch in Terre Haute.
“Party Girl” made her debut in the 2018 Juried Exhibition at Arts Illiana Gallery in Terre Haute. . . read more.
Following is an excerpt from Terre Haute Tribune-Star feature writer Mark Bennett’s story published today, Oct. 26, 2014:
“Last week, Terre Haute dedicated a sculpture at Fairbanks Park, commemorating Paul Dresser, his masterpiece, “On the Banks of the Wabash Far Away,” and the river itself. The bronze art piece, titled “A Song for Indiana,” by local sculptor Teresa Clark encompasses the man, his composition that became the Indiana state song, and the official state river, the Wabash.
At the dedication ceremony in the Girl Scouts building adjacent to the riverside park, Clark told a crowd of more than 100 people, “This piece is based on where I felt Paul Dresser’s inspiration began” — the images in its melodic chorus, the moonlight, the sycamores and the iconic stream.”
