“Art from the Heartland 2014”

April 17, 2014


April 11 – June 8, 2014

Indianapolis Art Center

Indianapolis, IN


This biennial regional exhibition is open to artists residing in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, and Kentucky. Last year was the first time I entered the show with sculpture, a recent and radical departure from my earlier 2 D work in tufted wool and pieced cotton organdy. My first submission to juried shows at the Indianapolis Art Center was in 1987, a competition juried by  Holliday T. Day, then the Director of the Indianapolis Museum of Art. I was awarded Best of Show  award for “Cool Jazz.” In the 2012 Art of the Heartland biennial, I came away with the Best in 3 D award for two of my rubber sculptures. This year I was awarded Honorable Mention in 3D for my “Black Vessel #1” sculpture. The juror was Sarah Green former Curator of Contemporary Art for the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
