July 31, 2015

Works of art by adult participants in the Indiana State University's Community School of the Arts' summer painting classes will be on display at the Clabber Girl Gallery through Aug. 28.

An opening reception will take place during First Friday festivities, 6-7:30 p.m. Aug. 7. Live music will be provided by Dylan Raymond.

Participating in the exhibition are Chia an Chao, Leslie Johnson, Crystal June-Danford, Hank Metzger, Liz Metzger, Gary Morris, Saundra Newsom, Milli Hoffman-Patrick, Cheryl Redman and Cathy Warner.

Plein-air painting, taught by Jo Anne Fiscus, allowed students to paint on location and covered topics including how to stain canvas, draw directly with paint, mix color, paint texture and deal with constantly changing light. Indoor acrylic painting, taught by Sarah Cole, introduced students to the genres of still life, portraiture and landscape.

Indoor painting and drawing workshops resume mid-September and are designed for individuals with beginning to intermediate experience levels. For more information, call the Community School of the Arts' office at 812-237-2575.
