Artists featured at Vigo library during August

Works by Keshia Pearman, Edith Acton, Johnathan Harris, Bill Wolfe and Michael Ries will be on display in August at the Vigo County Public Library at Seventh and Poplar streets.

• Keshia Pearman, an Indiana native and student at Indiana State University loves reading, writing, making collages, taking and collecting pictures. Her interest in photography developed in high school. Her favorite categories of photography are nature and conceptual. Pearman believes there is beauty in everything and tries to capture this in her photographs. She likes to take images of ordinary objects and show them in a new light.

Pearman is the recipient of the Wabash Valley Art Guild spring show 2007 second place in photography and the Provost’s Purchase Award 2008 Indiana State University Juried Student Exhibition.

Displayed at the Library will be “In Love With” and “Dragonfly.” Pearman says, “I love this picture because at first look you don’t really see the dragonfly and then you do and go ‘Ah, now I see it.’” More of Pearman’s work can be found on her Web site at

• Edith Acton holds a master of science from Indiana State University. She has taught at Montezuma and Schulte High School.

Acton has always been interested in art. After trying ceramics and stained glass, she has found her niche with fused glass. The medium satisfies her creativity and challenges new and improved art works. She says, “There are never two pieces the same so originality is always there.”

• Johnathan Harris grew up in Cambridge City. He now resides in Terre Haute and attended Indiana State University earning a bachelor of science degree in art history and a minor in painting and drawing. While at ISU, Harris worked on “Tunnel Times,” an underground newspaper, as an art and film critic and cartoonist/illustrator. He also worked on a literary journal, “Toad H’ Way” as cartoonist/illustrator and participated in performance art pieces.
