Sister of Providence artist opens exhibit in Terre Haute
Sister Jody O’Neil, artist in residence for the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, opens a solo exhibit today (Thursday, Jan. 19, 2012) at Corporate Square, 2901 Ohio Boulevard. The exhibit will continue until July 12.
Sister Jody, who works in several different media, will show 11 matted and framed photos and six framed watercolors, all of which are available for purchase. The exhibit, arranged through Arts Illiana, is free and open to the public.
The photos were taken in historic Rome and at The Vatican during the time of the canonization of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin in October 2006. The watercolors are on yupo. Yupo is a smooth, 100 percent recyclable, tree-free, durable, synthetic paper surface made from polypropylene pellets and manufactured in the United States. The pigments in the fluid watercolors were acquired worldwide.
Sister Jody derives her inspiration from nature and within the creative process working with the media to allow the media to manifest itself.
Sister Jody has two other exhibits scheduled this spring. She will be at the 24th annual Downtown Sarasota Festival of the Arts at Sarasota, Fla., Feb. 18-19 and she will have another solo exhibit at Coffee Grounds in Terre Haute May 1-May 31.
Sister Jody may be contacted at Roethele Art Studio at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods at 812-535-1018 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Her website is www.creationsights.org.
