Exhibits 2013

Framed:  Works by Thelma Frame

January 26 – March 23, 2014

The Richmond Art Museum will be hosting an exhibition by Richmond artist, Thelma Frame to start the 2014 exhibition year.  A native of Hebron, Indiana, Thelma graduated with an elementary teaching degree from Indiana University.  It was not until retirement from teaching that Thelma began pursuing art in earnest, working with local artists such as Bob Brubaker, Rosie McNees and Don Dennis.  

Raised on a farm, Thelma has been drawn to the Indiana landscape, depicting Hoosier barns, farms and countryside roadways.  An active ‘plein air’ painter, Thelma is a member of the Indiana Plein Air Painters Association, attending the New Harmony First Brush of Spring annual event as well as other paint outs throughout Indiana and Ohio.  Thelma’s work has won several prestigious awards, including the Hoosier Salon, Indiana Heritage Arts, Richmond Art Museum, Art Association of Randolph County, Darke County Fair and many others.

Please join us to celebrate the life and career of one of Richmond’s most noted and beloved artists.  A special opening and reception will be held on Sunday, January 26th from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
