River City Art Association members Edith Acton, Marvetta Bee, Eloise Lovell, Jim Tabor and Sheila K. Ter Meer have artwork featured in the July Associate Members Show at the Covered Bridge Art Association Gallery in Rockville.
A closing reception is scheduled 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 29, in CBAA’s Gallery at 124 W. Ohio St. on the Parke County Courthouse square.
Edith Acton of Terre Haute has two fused glass entries on display, one of which, “Pretty Little Blue Bird,” received a Third Place from juror and portrait artist Julie Bricker of Brazil, who wrote in her judge’s comments, “Nice color choice – very pleasing.” Edith’s other entry, “Woven Heart,” has “nice layering,” Bricker noted. “I like the change in textures.”
Marvetta Bee of Greencastle has a photography entry and a jewelry entry on display, both of which, received honors. Her “Girl Time” in black and white was awarded First Place for her “Good eye,” Bricker wrote. “Humorous. Positioned well on frame.”
A Third Place ribbon went to Marvetta’s necklace titled “Winding Roads,” which Bricker said is “a nice elegant piece. This artist seems to understand how to use the metal with the stone in a unique way.”
Eloise Lovell of Rosedale has a painting and a drawing entry in the show. “Standoff at the Dock of the Bay” in acrylic has a “fun subject,” Bricker wrote. “Like the eye looking off into the distance.”
Bricker’s comments on Eloise’s colored pencil drawing, “Hibiscus and Friends,” include “I like the eggplant & hibiscus colors repeated in the imaginative background.”
Jim Tabor of Center Point entered two watercolors: “Bedford Barn,” which Bricker noted has “a great subject” and “nice greenery”; and “Sassafras Leaf,” awarded Third Place for “nice color, contrast & texture.”
Sheila Ter Meer of Brazil, Indiana, has two entries in the photography category and both received honors. “Tennessee Whiskey,” a double exposure image on aluminum, was awarded Second Place. Bricker wrote, “A good eye to see this makes a great photo. Fun title. Well framed.”
An Honorable Mention went to Ter Meer’s abstract image titled “Blossoming Madly,” which Bricker noted, “Makes one want to explore more closely. Imaginative.”
