Indiana Heritage Arts Annual Exhibition
June 11-25th, Brown County Art Gallery, One Artist Drive, Nashville, IN.
Exhibit open until June 25, 2011.
This year, the show was juried and prizes selected by Judge Kathryn Stats of
Salt Lake City, Utah.
Judge Stats selected a painting by C.W. Mundy as the IHA
Gold Prize Winner, an Impressionist oil called “Creek Near Story.”
C.W.’s statement :
“Having looked at the list of artists juried into the 2011 show, I realized what a talented and creative group of artists we have in our state. It is quite an honor for me to be juried into this high quality exhibition and then to win such a nice award.
Regarding the technique of this particular painting, it was the first of several paintings, in which I experimented with scrubbing in a tonal value with a 1 & 1/2 inch house paint brush… then laying color with a combination of palette knife and mongoose brushes. My intention was to build a strong centrality of focus in a landscape with value and edges to
“guide the eye”.
I’m so grateful to the Lord for giving me this desire to create!
Thank you to all the I.H.A. board for your hard work, to the judge for her efforts to jury and judge, and to all my fellow artists for your encouragement to me and for your passion to create.”
