River City features paintings of artist Judith Lynn Smith

TERRE HAUTE — River City Art Association features artwork by Judith Lynn Smith throughout April in the Vigo County Public Library at Seventh and Poplar streets.

Smith is originally from Indianapolis and holds degrees in education from Indiana University. She taught school for many years – all ages and subjects, including art. She has been involved in business – administration, sales, and currently co-owns a small business. She has recently been able to pursue her life-long love of art, through painting in oil.

“I have been an art enthusiast since childhood – but only recently had the opportunity to study oil painting. After just a few lessons – it became my passion,” Smith says in her artist statement. “I very quickly became involved in exhibitions and competitions throughout our state. I am a member of many of the art groups, guilds and clubs in Central Indiana. This has provided a wonderful opportunity to meet other artists – who have been so supportive and encouraging.

“I am continually working to improve my painting skills, and have appreciated the comments of many of the master artists I admire – that all artists are continually learning and broadening their technique and subject matter. In fact, it is the challenge of improving in any career, sport, hobby or art that is the motivating factor to an interesting and successful life.

“As a former teacher I believe that children should be encouraged in the arts – and I am convinced that every child – and adult — has creative abilities. When given the opportunity to explore different mediums, each will find the one they find most fulfilling and enjoyable. Having been involved in the exhibition/competition community of Central Indiana only three years this summer, I have greatly enjoyed the art community here in Terre Haute. I have had works exhibited at Swope Art Museum, Halcyon Contemporary Gallery and Arts Illiana, as well as exhibitions hosted by River City Art Association and Wabash Valley Art Guild.

Smith currently has paintings on exhibit at various locations in Terre Haute, Zionsville, Indianapolis and Crawfordsville, as well as exhibitions and competitions throughout Central Indiana.
