TERRE HAUTE — Halcyon Art Gallery is presenting a compelling overview of visually arresting art movements of Terre Haute area artists. The exhibition, “Convergence: Two Groups, One Vision,” on display through Feb. 28, features more than 36 vivid paintings, prints, watercolors, drawings, glass, photography, wood, encaustic and sculpture by members of River City Art Association and Wabash Valley Art Guild. It is curated by Jo Anne Perigo Fiscus, past president of the Art Guild and Todd Stokes, River City president.
“Convergence: Two Groups, One Vision” is expressing a personal vocabulary through engaging art materials to its limit, says Ray Chen, executive director of the Halcyon. Both groups explore increasingly subjective forms of representation. They also share a vital sense of celebration and an eagerness for inspiration.
In addition to Perigo Fiscus and Stokes, participating artists include Amy Campbell Stineger, Bill Wolfe, Bob Riseling, Bruce Fiscus, Chuck Waggoner, Dave Gahimer, Debbie Anderson, Debbie Goodin, Deborah Hickman, Don Turner, Edith Acton, Jean Kristeller, Jim McMullen, Josh Spidel, Judith Lynn Smith, Julia London-Meddles, Kathy Matlock, Korinne Lee, Laura Mason, Michael Elmore, Mike Bender, Monty Jones, Roger King, Ruth Ann Brady, Scott Hinton, Sheila K. Ter Meer, Spencer Young, Thomas Dagley and Tom Makosky.
The Wabash Valley Art Guild and the River City Art Association are very pleased to bring the first-ever joint art exhibit in the Terre Haute Community, Perigo Fiscus said. This exhibit features a variety of work from West Central Indiana and East Central Illinois’ finest artists. Full story
