River City Art Association members Steve Harrold and Sheila K. Ter Meer have artwork in the 75th Annual Wabash Valley Exhibition, today (Sept. 6) through Oct. 20, in Swope Art Museum at Terre Haute, Indiana.
The exhibition opens at 5 p.m. with food and cash bar in the reception area just outside the Hulman and Schell galleries on the second floor of the museum at 25 S. Seventh St. Award announcements at 6 p.m.
From nearly 470 entries submitted by 165 artists, this year’s distinguished juror David Butler selected a variety of styles and media, choosing 57 works by 45 artists. Butler is former director of the Swope Art Museum (1995-2000) and current Executive Director of the Knoxville Museum of Art.
“Butler was impressed with the quality of the entries, which come from artists in five states,” the Swope said in its invitation to artists.
“My choices were … driven by a desire to include a diverse mix of subject, media, style and approach,” Butler said.
Admission to the exhibition of contemporary art and opening reception is free.
