79th annual Wabash Valley Exhibition

More than 800 artworks from artists in Indiana and six other states entered the Swope Art Museum’s 79th Annual Wabash Valley Exhibition.

The Swope had its awards ceremony honoring participating artists with 37 prizes Nov. 3. The Howard E. Wooden, Sr. Best of Show Grand Prize went to former Terre Haute South Vigo art teacher Rod Bradfield for his picture, “The New West,” a dramatic depiction of wildfires in a canyon in the American West.

John Yau, who lives in New York City, was the art show’s juror. Yau is an art professor at Rutgers University in New Jersey, and the highly respected writer of numerous nationally published art criticisms and the editor of “Hyperallergic,” a journal dedicated to serious, playful thinking about art in the world today.
