BUSY APRIL

April was yet another busy month. It started off with one of my best First Fridays to date. It’s always fun meeting new people and visiting with old friends! Two weeks after First Friday we participated in a small sale at St. Peter’s United Methodist Church in Posey county and met more new friends and caught up with a few old friends.

On Sunday, April 3rd, I was recognized for being the Efroymson Bridge Fellow at the 46th Annual Juried Student Art Show at USI, where two pieces of my artwork are on display until May 1st.

There were a couple of “just for fun” weekends as well. One actually was a work weekend, but a fun weekend as I got to model for and photograph one of my favorite models, Liv.  You can see some of these pictures on my Facebook and Instagram pages.

The weekend of the 23rd was spent in St. Louis helping one of my best friends celebrate her 25th birthday, so nice to relax and have fun as I gear up for a busy May!

I was invited to do an interview for the Evansville Podcast and we discussed my artwork and my Immerse show at the Evansville Museum. You can still access and listen to the podcast here if you haven’t had a chance to do so.

Many thanks to all who came out and supported Immerse at the Koch Immersive Theater. It was a surreal feeling to see my pieces of art displayed on such a large scale and for so many people at once. Thank you all for such congratulatory feedback and compliments. It was a pleasant surprise to find out that Immerse was the first art installation to ever make use of the Koch Immersive Theater; I look forward to enjoying more artist’s work in that amazing venue.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible. Information about the event can be viewed here.

Thank you for a great April and I look forward to seeing you in May!

Meetup, Evansville Museum’s Event Page, Facebook Event, and Interview with Evansville Podcast Promoting the Event and Jenna’s artwork.

Thursday, April 28, 2016.

Artist Jenna (Citrus) Rueger is presenting an aural and visual art display of her work in the unique environment of Koch Immersive Theater. While usually reserved for planetarium shows, the domed projection screen inside the Museum’s planetarium is more than just a venue to see stars and giant screen movies. Her work, which consists of photographic designs, original paintings and artwork are to be displayed on the big screen in 360 degree, eye encompassing splendor. Some of the pieces that are to be displayed are reminiscent of rotundas, fractals, and abstract imagery. Many never before seen images of paintings, photographs, and tessellations will be projected for one show only.

Miss Rueger is this year’s Efroymson Bridge Year Fellow at the University of Southern Indiana. This fellowship is presented to a recent graduate from USI and allows the recipient a year to prepare a portfolio for the purpose of applying to graduate programs for a MFA. Jenna will host a solo exhibition of her work in December 2016 at the McCutchan Art Center/Pace Galleries located at the University of Southern Indiana to complete her fellowship.
