“My grid paintings incorporate imagery deduced from organic forms, like rocks and dried pieces of clay, and function as a spreadsheet of one-shot, individual paintings grouped together. Once the organic properties are placed within a geometric system, a dialogue of patterns, both symmetrical and asymmetrical, typify this reciprocal relationship,” Payne said.
Richmond residents W. Ray Stevens and Doris Turnbaugh each began their art training at an early age and today paint their surroundings in oils and watercolor.

Whitewater Top Ten 2007 Cash Awards and Purchase Awards
Richmond, Ind. – Between the two major red scares of the twentieth century, a police raid on a Communist Party Bookstore in Oklahoma City marked an important lesson in the history of American freedom. Shirley A. Wiegand and Wayne A. Wiegand share the compelling story of this important case for the first time. They reveal how state power – with support from local media and businesses – was used to trample individuals’ civil rights during an era in which citizens were gripped by fear of foreign subversion.
Indiana University East will accept art entries beginning Monday, September 24 for the 2007 Whitewater Valley Annual Art Competition.
