Acrylic paintings by River City Art Association member Sandy Fisher are featured throughout October in the Vigo County Public Library at Seventh and Poplar streets in Terre Haute, Indiana.
Fall flowers and the fruits of the harvest are the theme for Sandy’s Artist of the Month display.
This can be a sad time, Sandy said, to see summer coming to an end. But she likes to think of it as another awakening of God’s gift in the form of a burst of color.
During the summer, we’re surrounded by many forms of green – in our grass and trees, she said. When fall comes we experience so many more colors – reds, yellows, oranges, tan, etc.
“I have tried to capture some of these colors for you in these paintings,” she added.
Sandy’s artwork also has been featured in shows at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Sullivan Area Art Guild gallery in Sullivan, Ind., and Gaslight Art Colony in Marshall, Ill.
In August, Sandy’s acrylic painting, “The Dress,” won the People’s Choice Award at RCAA’s 10th Annual Juried Exhibition.
Sandy also currently has a Native American exhibit in the Carnegie Heritage Art Center of Greene County at Linton, Ind.; florals and still life paintings in RCAA’s new Community Outreach Gallery in Terre Haute Regional Hospital; and “The Dress” is one of two works in RCAA’s “Fall for Vigo County” membership show also this month in The Gallery at Clabber Girl Museum in Terre Haute.
Sandy is a lifelong member of the Terre Haute community. She attended Thornton, Woodrow Wilson and Wiley High schools. She also owned and operated a beauty salon for 42 years.
Everything she does she gives credit to The Lord for giving her the opportunity to share her life with others through her paintings.
