Visitor bureau exhibits local artists' work

ANDERSON, Ind. — Paintings of flowers and photographs of happy couples on their wedding days fill the walls in part of the Anderson Madison County Visitor and Convention Bureau.

“Who else’s visitors center has something like this?” local artist Carlos Seal said.

Seal, along with seven other artists, have their work displayed at the bureau. She said it’s another great way to get exposure.

“It’s very satisfying,” she said. “And we all wanted to point to which one was ours, especially me. That’s the artist ego – if you paint it, you want to show it.”

Seal’s painting of pink poppies is displayed at the bureau, along with five other Madison County Art Association artists’ paintings.

Individuals normally submit a collection of their work to be displayed, but art association president Beverly Mills said the organization decided to do it a little differently this time.

Since just about all of its members have had exhibits there before, they decided to start entering artwork as a group. Each person made their own pieces, but they submitted paintings around the same theme: florals.

The paintings from the group’s members include oils, acrylics, water colors and pastels.

Professional photographers Jack and Susan Boldman submitted some of their pictures, mainly wedding photos.

Although the exhibit normally doesn’t contain professional work, the husband and wife said photography is an art form.

“There’s a big connection between painting a flower in your head,” Jack Boldman said, while pointing to one of his photos, “that girl with the white flowers and greens, making that picture, making her look like that, seeing it… to me it is art. You have to think of it as art.”

The duo started taking friends’ wedding pictures 25 years ago and started their business about 10 years ago. They could look at the same thing at a shoot, but see the subjects and photograph them differently.
