Wabash Valley Artists Featured in Fall Art Exhibition
October 16, 2013
Capturing Oriental Beauty: Rose-Hulman’s fall art exhibition features several oil paintings from travels made by Don Monroe of Sullivan, Indiana. The artworks can be viewed on the second floor of Myers Hall on campus.
Artists from Terre Haute and Sullivan share their many talents and experiences in a fall art exhibition in hallways in Moench Hall and Myers Hall at Rose-Hulman through December 20. This is an example of how the institute showcases art to get its students to think creatively.
A free public reception honoring artists Brian Miller and Debbie Anderson of Terre Haute, along with Don Monroe of Sullivan will be on October 24 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in both campus buildings.
“Fleeting Moments” is the title of an exhibit of photographs by Miller, owner and partner of Terre Haute’s MillerWhite Marketing. He is a master of visual art in several mediums, and a thoughtful and perceptive artist who is always examining the world for insights in living.
Miller’s photography series on the second floor of Moench Hall show the artist’s response to the ever-changing moods of light, atmosphere, and textures in our everyday world. The photographs preserve and convey singular experiential moments which awaken the sense of beauty, complexity, and temporality.
Oil paintings featured in Monroe’s “International Journeys” exhibit were inspired by his travels to China, Thailand, Brazil, Russia, Italy, France, and the Caribbean. These exquisite, large scale paintings throughout Myers Hall depict places, people, and events during his travels.
Even as a very young man, Monroe was compelled to create art. He held a deep fascination with painting and has spent a lifetime building his painting skills. Now, Don shows his abilities as a mature artist, refined through years of study of his craft.
Anderson’s latest beautiful wood inlay works, featuring a variety of woods and subjects/themes, are displayed in the exhibit “Current Intarsia Creations,” located on the second floor of Moench Hall. Her works of carefully fitted gorgeous woods are a delight to behold, technically, and aesthetically.
Finally, Miller/White Marketing documents the branding and marketing process used to promote client companies in the exhibit “Grey Matters, An Integrated Marketing Exhibit,” located on the first floor of Moench Hall. The exhibit strives to help educate Rose-Hulman students and campus visitors on how effective communication happens. “QR” codes embedded in the graphics allow viewers to use their smartphones to wirelessly access more examples and explanatory data via internet web pages. Marketing publications use images, colors, space, positioning, and scale as structural visual components.
These fall exhibits are available for public viewing from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. In other campus buildings are other artworks from Rose-Hulman’s permanent art collection.
