Seven River City Art Association members have artwork in the Vigo County Public Library’s NEA Big Read Art Competition/Exhibition on view through March in the library at Seventh and Poplar streets.

The library invited RCAA and other area artists to create artwork inspired by the 2017 book selection, “Their Eyes Were Watching God,” by Zora Neale Hurston.

A reception for library patrons to meet several of the artists is set for 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. March 29.

Prizes will be awarded to the Best of Show, selected by a special judge, and People’s Choice as voted by library patrons viewing the exhibit throughout March.

RCAA entries include:

“Light of the Town,” fused glass, by Edith Acton of Terre Haute.

“Honey Bee and Comb,” intarsia/inlaid wood, by Rod Funk of Terre Haute.

“Reflections,” fabric and thread/oil paint, by Valerie Funk of Terre Haute.

“Dust Bearers,” watercolor on paper, by Dian Der Ohanian Phillips of Terre Haute.

“Nature Made Everything Else,” photography by Todd Stokes of Terre Haute and Dennison, Ill.
