River City Art Association member Sheila K. Ter Meer was notified Oct. 2 by Indiana University East campus art director Ed Thornburg that her abstract digital art entry, “Angry Peacock,” was chosen for the 39th Annual Whitewater Valley Art Exhibition at IU East in Richmond.
The competition, juried September 29, included 70 artists and 184 art pieces.
Of the number of submissions, 58 works by 43 artists were selected by a three-judge panel for the exhibition in the Tom Thomas Gallery and Meijer Artway in Whitewater Hall.
The exhibit opened with an artist/donor reception on the evening of October 20 in Whitewater Hall. The artists were invited to that event, and one First Place, three Second Place, and four Third Place awards, and five Honorable Mention awards were announced.
The exhibition can be viewed through Dec. 8.
Ter Meer is a resident of Brazil, Indiana, honored in regional, state and national competitions for her nature photography and digital art abstractions.
