Clabber Girl exhibit to launch Rivers and Roads Artisan Trail

TERRE HAUTE — Works by Wabash Valley artisans will be on display at The Gallery at the Clabber Girl Museum to promote the launch of the Rivers and Roads Artisan Trail.

Rivers and Roads was created to promote the region’s hand-crafted art and food and to boost the economy in the six-county region centered around the crossroads of U.S. 40 and U.S. 41. It is a collaboration between Indiana Artisan and Indiana State University’s Rural-Urban Entrepreneurship Development Institute.

Creations by 10 artisans will be featured during the exhibition, scheduled to run July 1-30.

“This exhibit offers an excellent opportunity to see and appreciate the work of artisans who are Wabash Valley treasurers. Their skills are truly amazing,” said Steven Pontius, RUEDI director and professor of geography at Indiana State.

“It is our pleasure to participate in this collaboration to bring artisans throughout the Wabash Valley together and promote their hard work,” said Megan Marvin, public relations specialist at Clabber Girl.

“We are excited to welcome the Rivers and Roads Artisan Trail members into The Gallery at the Museum throughout the month of July.”

A Rivers and Roads advisory board — created by RUEDI, Clabber Girl, Arts Illiana and Wabash Valley Art Spaces and representatives from Clay, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion and Vigo counties — has approved these artisans for inclusion in the trail, certifying that their venues provide the public with a meaningful experience:

• Sister Jodi O’Neill, painter, St. Mary-of-the-Woods
