Solo show in Arts Illiana Community Outreach Gallery, Terre Haute


Arts Illiana COG Corporate Square mid-June to mid-December 2020

Here is a sneak peek at my solo show in the Arts Illiana Community Outreach Gallery at Corporate Square in Terre Haute, Indiana.

A total 22 pieces are featured on both levels of this open entryway to the complex on Ohio Boulevard. Several have received awards and honors at local, regional and national juried shows.

Arts Illiana COG Corporate Square 2

The COG is managed by River City Art Association of which I have been a member since January 2013, when my professional artistic journey began in Indiana and Illinois.

In the beginning my shows featured representational photographic images. To set my artistic license apart from contributions by other artists  in the Wabash Valley, my focus shifted to creating one-of-a-kind photography-based abstractions from my photographic images.

Since I am not a professional photographer, this shift to expressionism is now my passion with an occasional “happy accident” in realism.

Search the categories at the top of this post to see examples of my artwork featured in this show as well as other shows since I started my website Sheila T Illustrated in October 2011.

Elvis has left the building!


Vegas Elvis 1977 in Swope Art Museum

Vegas Elvis 1977 has left the building.

His next show is a fundraiser for Swope Art Museum in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Vegas Elvis 1977 was honored in 2019 to appear at the Swope’s 75th Annual Wabash Valley Exhibition and now it’s his turn to give back.
I have donated this photography-based abstraction for a silent auction on May 3 during Swope Art Museum’s annual Marilyn Pendergast Spring Dinner and Fundraiser in the Country Club of Terre Haute in Allendale.
Each year, the dinner honors someone involved with the Swope for their contributions. Each year, proceeds from the silent auction help fund the upcoming annual exhibition.
Leading up to the fundraiser all donated original works of art will be on display in windows at the Swope, 25 S. Seventh Street.
In addition to the Swope, Vegas Elvis 1977 had shows in Arts Illiana Gallery and The Gallery at Clabber Girl Museum. May 3 will be his fifth and final public appearance in Terre Haute . He will then be added to a Swope patron’s private collection.
What an honor!
