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.

Again I am honored to have my contribution to the visual arts recognized and validated by professional jurors in Indiana and Illinois.

My digital artwork Angry Peacock received First Place and The Woods Enchanted received Second Place in the River City Art Association 8th Annual Juried Exhibition in Terre Haute, Indiana.

The exhibition can be viewed through Aug. 26 in the First Financial Bank in downtown Terre Haute.

A really humbling personal honor came at the end of the awards ceremony when RCAA founding member Monty “Indiana” Jones and other members of the Terre Haute-based artists group voted me recipient of the Marty Martinez Contributory Award.

This special award is given for an RCAA member’s dedicated service throughout the year, in memory of the late founding member and owner of the Raven Art Gallery in Terre Haute.
