Vigo County Library features River City Art Association talent

The Vigo County Library and Seventh and Poplar streets presents for the month of September, River City Art Association, Inc. artists‚ Edith Acton, Rob Robbins, Jane Lubbenhusen and James Dugger.

Exhibited in the lobby are fused glass creations by Acton. The display features Acton’s beautiful glass jewelry. Acton’s lifetime search for the perfect medium finally ended in creating unusual artwork with fused glass. “Fusing glass into artistic forms has been the most satisfactory medium; there seems to be an endless amount of learning and creating to peak interest,” Acton said.

Acton has always lived in the Terre Haute area and has a family of three children, two daughters and a son. She is the proud grandmother of eight grandchildren. Acton has a master of science degree from Indiana State University and taught home economics at the high school level before retiring

Robbins photographs document the past and present for the future. Robbins is strictly a digital photographer and enjoys photographing almost everything he sees. An attempt is under way to photograph many of the old buildings and features in and around Vigo County.

Robbins’ photographs have graced the pages of National Speleological Society publications pages and publications of the Nature Conservancy as well as the cover of the programs for the North Alabama Land Trust and the Wabash Valley Community Band program covers for 2008 and was a featured artist during 2007. Robbins also has a number of photographs in the Wabash Valley Visions & Voices — a digital memory project preserving the past and present for the future at Indiana State University.

Lubbenhusen began painting in the 1970s but had to put her passion for creating on hold while she taught school at Rio Grande in northern Vigo County and raised her family. Married to Dick Lubbenhusen, Jane has three children and six grandchildren.
