‘City in Pane’ and other works receive honors in July-August


First Place and Second Place: City in Pane, giclee print on canvas

I purposely, but I must say anxiously, waited until selections in a couple of prestigious juried competitions were decided (not invited to either) before I posted my honors back in July and August.

Sycamore Frost, First Place in TREES Inc. 2019 contest; First Place in Covered Bridge Art Association Associate Members Show in 2019 and Third Place in 2020 Annual Midwest Photography Show.

It was a great honor to receive a Second Place, Third Place and Honorable Mention in the Annual Midwest Photography Show late-July thru mid-August at the Link Art Gallery in Paris, Illinois.

I also received a First Place in the photography/digital category at River City Art Association’s 12th Annual Juried Exhibition in August in Terre Haute, Indiana.

I am not a professional photographer so competing in both juried categories was quite a challenge for me.

Until this year!

My giclee print on 14 x 20 canvas titled “City in Pane” was awarded Second Place at the Paris show, and a 11 x 14 version,  First Place in the Terre Haute exhibition!!

Telephone Network Interface

The Third Place in the Paris show went to my photograph, “Sycamore Frost,” which received two First Place honors in 2019.

The Honorable Mention at Paris was awarded to “Telephone Network Interface” on aluminum. I have since re-titled it  “Stranglehold,” and it is now displayed in my solo show at Corporate Square in Terre Haute through mid-December.

Upcoming show:

“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.  Artwork in that exhibition can be purchased on the website at gaslightartcolony.com

 

 

“Rivers & Waters” art show: Bridgeton Waterfall


Here is my latest work on display with the River City Art Association in Terre Haute, Indiana.

“Bridgeton Waterfall” in May at Bridgeton in Parke County, Indiana.

“Bridgeton Waterfall” and its companion piece, “Froth,” showcase Big Raccoon Creek that flows beneath the Bridgeton Covered Bridge and over the dam, creating a waterfall alongside the Bridgeton Grist Mill as it meanders through Parke County, Indiana to the Wabash River.
The most photographed scene in Parke County was even more captivating on May 18, 2013 as the swollen creek spilled over limbs of a large tree left on the dam by recent floodwaters.
The water’s surface sparkled like diamonds in the afternoon sun and trees on an island just a few yards downstream cast shadows on the dam, adding a hint of blue to the gold in the waterfall’s curtain.
My adrenalin rushed faster than the water over the dam as I dangled my upper torso precariously over a stone barrier to position my camera as far down and away from the wall as I could to capture the colors of the dam as well as the cascading effect of the water falling over the tree limbs to the pool of foam below.
