RCAA member Korinne Lee Cantin of Terre Haute is one of several award winners in the Swope Art Museum’s “70th Annual Wabash Valley Juried Exhibition.”
Winners were announced on Saturday, June 28, at the exhibition’s opening reception. This year’s distinguished juror was Carter E. Foster, Steven and Ann Ames Curator of Drawing at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
Twenty-one awards, sponsored by local organizations and individuals were presented, along with four purchase awards.
Korinne received the Emily and John Gedrick Award of Recognition for her encaustic on panel titled “To Build A Fire, 2014.”
Korinne studied art education at Indiana State University and is now an elementary art teacher.
As a student, her work received awards and recognition from the art department and in student shows.
Her encaustic paintings commonly depict atmospheric scenes, resounding with isolation and solitude. Her work often contains the conflict between nature and human interlopers.
The Swope annual exhibition will be on view through August 23.
