Frost and a light dusting of snow on desert plants in the hour before sunrise, painted in muted, cool colors, is an award-winning painting for Indiana Heritage Arts artist Abby Laux of Celestine.
Laux, an art teacher in the Paoli-area schools, won a $1,000 IHA Award of Excellence. IHA is now celebrating its 40th annual exhibition and sale at the Brown County Art Gallery, Artist Dr. and Main St., Nashville. The show closes Saturday, June 30. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. All paintings are for sale.
The IHA show, one of the largest in Indiana, features 100 works by 64 artists. Some $30,000 in prize money was awarded.
Laux’ oil painting, titled “Lamar Valley,” is a landscape of a desert at Yellowstone National Park.
She is a graduate of Indiana University with a degree in education and received a Masters of Art in Art degree from Northwestern University in Louisana in 2012. Laux, until recently, has taught art in all 12 grades. She also will be teaching advanced college placement drawing classes in a program with Ivy Tech of Bloomington.
Laux was juried into the IHA show in 2016. In 2014, she was awarded the Eli Lilly Teacher Creativity Fellowship Grant.
