A feature about Sculpt EVV and the Art House:
Let the outdoors in.
The “courtyard” view.
Accidental shots are the best, I saw many shots took them, then tried to rework them for a “real” composition, but the first shots were all the best—where I pointed and shot.
The last look as we left the building.
Our second class meeting.
Next to the Alhambra Theater in the Adam’s Gallery for planning.
Walking from our new “classroom” to our Art House!
We are all about to experience, for the first time for each of us, the interior of the house. Who knows what we are going to find!
Thankfully, the house was not a disaster just in a bit of disarray.

View from the first room looking back toward the 2nd room
2nd room from before, we found a wedding dress with a train in the closet off to the left side of this frame, we hope to incorporate it into the finished product.
The door on the left, where the light emanates from, is the bathroom, two closets are positioned behind the door.
This image reminds me of the experience we shared as we entered. My classmates, professor, and I all went urban exploring (with permission of course) in our “new house”. One themes we pulled from our initial experience was that of wonder and finding out the unknown, much like when we were children and everything was new and full of unexplored territory. We want to integrate this idea into the house for sure: giving people an experience that they will remember in a positive, or at least not negative, light.
We began cleaning out the house Saturday morning, May 17th 2014. After less than an hour, the 10 of us had the house empty and organized. Then we met to discuss what we were going to do with the interior space. We brainstormed and landed on a few common ideas we wanted to pursue. For our next class we will have sketches and proposals for how we are going to execute our designs (DES9s).
DES9: art is not being able to be categorized
art blurs the lines between media
sometimes a media choice is not clear
DES9 alleviates the boundaries between media and uses art as an integral way of life.
combined with the 9 “typical” categories of art:
We are about to DES9 a house.
Venius Meiggs: Evansville local and an amazing jewelry maker.
I first met Venius at Sculpt EVV a few years ago and I see her at every local arts and craft show I make it to. Her work is amazing and crosses a variety of styles.
From emerging sexuality to young love on the brink of adulthood, to antics of the author and his coworkers, to the tragic effects of war on the author’s best friend from high school, this work contains experiences and insights of the author gleaned from years growing up and rearing a family while working factories and coal mine in southern Indiana and western Kentucky. Humorous, poignant, and thought provoking, the poems and stories focus on individuals and the effects of the world around them on the individual’s psyche and actions.
About the author:
Born in 1951, Terry Seaton resides in Evansville, Indiana with his wife, Donna, and their dachshund, Lucky. After working in factories and a coal mine, Terry earned his degree in English education from the University of Southern Indiana and began teaching English and journalism at Mt. Vernon High School in 1995 where he continues to teach. Described as a southern writer by John Hawkes and Rust Hills, Terry’s writing draws on experiences from his life to focus on interpersonal relationships and effects of place and events on individuals.
This is Terry’s first published book.
Terry, my high school creative writing teacher, approached me last year with a photograph I had taken. He brought the photograph to a meet with me at PG. And he said, “I want this image as a book cover.” This led to a fairly long process of proofing the book, copy editing, picking corresponding images for some of the poems, and finally hitting the publish button.
