Artwork by RCAA’s Sheila K. Ter Meer in Arts Illiana Gallery ‘Self Portraits’ exhibition


Born on the Libra-Scorpio Cusp for Arts Illiana

This abstraction of my conflicted self, titled “Born on the Libra-Scorpio Cusp,” has been selected for “Self Portraits: The Original Selfie,” the current exhibition in the Arts Illiana Gallery in Terre Haute, Indiana.

My digital art and other “Selfies” selected by guest curator and Terre Haute artist Rachel Hellmann can be viewed through July 21 in the gallery at 23 N. Sixth St.

The full title is “Middle Child Born on the Libra-Scorpio Cusp.”

A brief explanation (because it would take several minutes and space here to explain the imagery cocooned by the two opposing profiles):

The Libra-Scorpio Cusp – Oct. 20 through 26 – also is referred to as the Cusp of Drama and Criticism.

I was born a middle child on the middle date of this transitional phase. (The drama – and passion – begin.)

So you ask, which of these signs of passion pulls me stronger?

According to DailyHoroscope.com … “The greatest challenge for Libra-Scorpio cuspers is to balance the mental nature of Libra with the emotional side of Scorpio.”

I believe God predetermined my birth date and birth order, but I must admit, the traits of a Libra and a Scorpio combined with the clinical explanation of middle child syndrome often fit my psychological profile to a T !

When it comes to my artwork, I am my own worst critic.
