River City artists remember founder

TERRE HAUTE — As a gift to the community, the late Wabash Valley artist Marty Martinez’s wife, Debi, is placing his watercolors on display at the Vigo County Public Library for the month of November.

Martinez founded River City Art Association, Inc., and was both a teacher and mentor to artists in the community. A painter since the age of 12 and a resident of Terre Haute since 1976, Martinez displayed his dry brush watercolor paintings in the Valley for 34 years.

Martinez painted throughout his life while working for 43 years as a physician’s assistant, 22 years in the Naval Reserve, and while running his own gallery and frame shop for 17 years. His art has been publicized in Texas, Wyoming, Indiana, Illinois and New Mexico and has been exhibited throughout the Midwest. More of Martinez’s watercolors may be seen at The Landing at Fort Harrison through the month of November.
