Exhibit features interpretations of historic, natural aspects of river

TERRE HAUTE — The Swope Art Museum exhibit “Watermark-the Wabash River” will feature artists’ interpretations of historic and natural aspects of Terre Haute’s landmark waterway, on display through Aug. 24 in the museum’s education gallery.

Watermark formed to collaborate on an installation of mosaic stepping stones for the “2013 Year of the River” community-wide celebration. The public art installation will be dedicated in June in Fairbanks Park. The Swope exhibition features works of art that are loosely based on the designs used for the stones and includes explanations of each image’s significance and relevance, as well as background information about the public art project.

Each of the 16 artists of Watermark have participated in the project. Jo Anne Perigo Fiscus and Sujata Gopalan evoke the wonder of childhood with images of the creatures that live in the water, while Heather Loney, Jim Loney and Laura Mason present images of the fauna and flora that live near the Wabash River. Images of water birds by Susan Tingley, Edie Richards and David Erickson are the product of historical, personal and technical research.

Renderings of boats by Rod Bradfield and Trevor Bridgewater draw on the artists’ sense of adventure and fun, while Petra Nyendick and Zac Chambers investigate personal and historic landmarks through technical drawings. Works of art by Stephanie Standish and Todd Stokes are influenced by aerial views of the river and its surrounding landscape, while works by John Davidson and John Gardner explore the water itself.

The exhibit is an educational exhibition by the artists’ collective Watermark, made possible by Westminster Village. Admission is free.
