Our 2020 Open Class Art Show Judge, Christy Brinkman-Robertson.
Our Judge, Christy Brinkman-Robertson is the Art Curator at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, working there first as Assistant Art Curator from 2010-2016, and full-time since. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (Studio Art) at Indiana State University, then became involved with the Swope Art Museum’s youth art program while also the Gallery Assistant and Artist-in-Residence for the Halcyon Contemporary Art Gallery. She is on the education committees for both the Swope Art Museum and Art Spaces in Terre Haute.
Public exhibitions and awards:
Brinkman-Robertson has exhibited artwork locally at the Swope’s Wabash Valley Juried Exhibition and at Art’s Illiana. Her resume also includes starting an up-cycled jewelry line, commissioned paintings, an outdoor mural in Brazil, IN, and illustrations for a column in the Terre Haute Living magazine.
Working in all art mediums at one point or another, she has equal respect and love for them all. "What we should look for in art is whether all elements are used well together. Art has been defined as the product of a body of knowledge, most often using a set of skills. That leaves us with the ability to express ideas in many forms."
Our Thanks to Christy Brinkman-Robertson for assisting us this year!
Covid-19 Virus Remains a
Health Safety Concern!
Covid-19 safety measures will STILL be observed including social distancing of our patrons visiting us, we will limit the number of visitors in the Gallery, and our clerk assistants will be wearing masks for everyone's protection!
We are all anxious to get out and enjoy our community and business establishments, but we ask that you STILL stay home to reduce virus spread when possible. Wash your hands often, do not touch your face, and see your health professional if you experience a cough, temperature or other flu related symptoms.
Don't forget Art and Creativity offers a much needed distraction from the current worry and anxiety! Expressing your art interests creates a new form of beauty that we can share with others! So Paint, Draw, Color, Create! -CBAA
