Abstractions in solo show at Country Club of Terre Haute have forever homes


2018 CBAA Associate Members Show-a rose Blossoming Madly

I am honored to announce that two of my photography-based digital art abstractions featured in my solo show in the Country Club of Terre Haute have forever homes.

In April, a rose “Blossoming Madly” caught the eye of a young mother dining with family at the Country Club in the Allendale area of Terre Haute.

And on Mother’s Day, I was surprised by daughters of a Terre Haute woman wanting to honor their mother with her favorite among all the artwork, “(Lavender Blue) Dilly Dilly.” (By coincidence, I must note that the original for this abstraction was an image I made of wildflowers in May a few years ago.)

Both images  and their titles spoke to these daughters’ and mothers’ hearts in a special way and that makes my heart sing!

You see, both of these images and titles are unique to me and hold special meaning for me. Growing up, my mother’s nickname was “Rosebud” and in later year’s “Rose.” I also grew up with a love for one of my Dad’s favorite folk singers, Burl Ives, and the original version of “Lavender Blue (Dilly Dilly).”

Several other abstractions are featured through mid-June in Arts Illiana’s Community Outreach Gallery space in the Country Club of Terre Haute.

RCAA spring membership show in April at Clabber Girl Museum, reception April 7


Through the syc - a-mores by Sheila K. Ter MeerThis show includes my third Dresser’s Legacy photograph, “Through the syc – a-mores …” and my abstract digital art piece, “(Lavender Blue) Dilly Dilly.”

My entry “Through the syc – a-mores …” was awarded an Honorable Mention in the 2016 TREES Inc. photography contest, “Bicentennial TREES: Celebrating Terre Haute’s Canopy,” also the Vigo County Public Library’s Bicentennial Legacy Project sanctioned by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission.
The image features the sycamore trees in the sculpture “A Song For Indiana” by Teresa Clark and a nearby sycamore in Fairbanks Park at Terre Haute framed by the sheet music to the official Indiana state song, “On the Banks of the Wabash, Far Away,” by Indiana composer and Terre Haute native son Paul Dresser.

(Lavender Blue) Dilly Dilly I created using a photograph of wildflowers I had captured in May near my rural Indiana home.

A spring show by River City Art Association will be featured April 7-28 in The Gallery at Clabber Girl Museum, 900 Wabash Ave., in Terre Haute.

An opening reception to meet many of the artists is set for 6 to 8 p.m. April 7.

More than 25 works will showcase the diverse talents of the art group, including a 24- by 36-inch acrylic on Masonite by RCAA founding member Monty “Indiana” Jones of Terre Haute.

Jones said friend and photographer Brendan Kearns of Terre Haute provided the image for him to use as reference for his painting, thus the title “B.K.’s Doe.”

RCAA vice president Todd Stokes often captures the bold statement of the trees in his Dennison, Illinois, woods. This show will feature his photographic work, “Autumn Beech.”
