From Local Sources

JASPER — The Dubois County Art Guild artwork at the Jasper City Mill will change Thursday. The public is invited to a free reception at the Jasper City Mill from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday for the new exhibit featuring the work of Barbara McCullough of Jasper.

McCullough is a past classroom teacher and accomplished artist. She spent 23 years teaching art in the Southwest Dubois County School Corporation.

She is a plein air painter as well as a studio artist and actively paints outdoors several days every month.

“I am continually on an inspirational journey searching for interest, color, and light,” she said. “I always strive to form an emotional bridge between the subject and my viewer. I am reminded of the words of the famous American painter, Edward Hopper, ‘If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.’”

McCullough has a degree from the University of Southern Indiana, Evansville, and graduate studies from Indiana Wesleyan University, Marion, and Arrowmont School of Art at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She is a member of the Indiana Plein Air Painters Association and the Dubois County Art Guild where she has won numerous awards. She also has served as president of the Dubois County Art Guild.

In addition, the gallery walk will have a collection of art work by guild members. All artwork at the Jasper City Mill DCAG Gallery Walk is original and for sale. The work consists of oil, watercolor, drawing, acrylic, photography, print, sculpture, and 3-D pieces.

Fall is a beautiful time for a reception in the river walk area. Those looking for something different and original for their home or just browsing for enjoyment will find that the Jasper City Mill provides a unique shopping atmosphere.
