4 Friends of T.C. Steele Newsletter 4 Summer, 2014 Arts Outreach Program Site staff and volunteers just completed the first year of the Arts Outreach Program. The project goal was to increase awareness of the famous Hoosier artist T.C. Steele, provide quality art educational program to rural communities and to create new community partnerships throughout our region. We reached out to public libraries, schools and art and history organizations throughout our region to help us coordinate and market these programs to the community. We gratefully acknowledge the sponsors of this program: National Endowment of the Arts, Indiana Arts Commission, Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County, IVY Tech Bloomington, the Friends of T.C. Steele and the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites. Last October, three short training sessions were conducted for our volunteers and then two test runs were made at the BETA Club in Nashville in November. In January, another round of volunteer training was held, then the programs began. From January to June, the program implemented 17 art educational workshops in 7 different counties for 302 participants and with over 150 hours of volunteer time. From adult workshops with working artist, to children painting murals, to informative presentations for adult clubs, these programs took various shapes and sizes. The organizations that we visited in 2014 were Brown County Public Library, Brown County Historical Society, Village of Nashville Art Walk, Bloomfield Public Library, Hatfield and Burris Elementary Schools in Mitchell, Lawrence County Historical Society, Monroe County Public Library -Ellettsville Branch, Hinkle-Garton Farmstead (in partnership with the Creative Aging Festival), Morgan County Public Library- Monrovia Branch, Mooresville Public Library, Melton Public Library and the Owen County Art Guild. The real stars are the volunteers and artists: Debbie Bartels, Laura Bulla, Ellen Cramer, Brenda Jackson, Tina Jernigan, Wyatt LeGrand, Kesha Minns, Amanda Moore, Alex Price, Betty Wagoner and Rick Wilson. (Visit us on Facebook to see more photos of our outreach project.) Book on Hoosier Group Artist William Forsyth Author and Indiana art expert Rachel Berenson Perry discussed her latest book, William Forsyth: The Life and Work of an Indiana Artist, June 15 at a Sunday at Home program at the T.C. Steele State Historic Site. The work describes this early Indiana artist and explores his art. It offers insights into Forsyth s sometimes mercurial personality, his relationships with his students, and his devotion to educating the public about the importance of art. Forsyth and Steele were colleagues. The book is on sale in the Friends of Art Museum Shop at T.C. Steele State Historic Site. Ms. Perry is the former fine arts curator of the Indiana State Museum, where she organized and curated all of the art exhibitions from 2003 to She has written numerous articles for American Art Review and Traces of Indiana and Midwestern History (Indiana Historical Society). Her books include Painting Indiana III: Heritage of Place (Indiana University Press, 2013); Barry Gealt: Embracing Nature (Indiana University Press, 2012); Paint and Canvas: A Biography of T. C. Steele (Indiana Historical Society, 2012); T. C. Steele and the Society of Western Artists (Indiana University Press, 2009); and Children from the Hills: The Life and Work of Ada Walter Shulz (Artist Colony Press, 2001).
5 5 Summer, 2014 Improvements Continue at Steele s Boyhood Home The Palladium window, a central feature of the Colonial Revival house, has been rebuilt and installed. This window faces due east so it provides for a great sunrise. Upstairs renovation, including electrical and fixtures, is fully completed. The second floor will be a dormitory for visiting artists. The original railing around the stairwell (seen in foreground of the picture below) has remained in place all these years and is absolutely beautiful, albeit it very simple; no new wood or patch work was needed. The wood plank floor has been restored to the best condition possible with the red paint left on the floor. John Moore, interpreter/guide at the T. C. Steele State Historic Site, recently visited the Boyhood Home in effort to gain a better understanding of Steele, his life and work. Steele s Boyhood Home Hosts Painters On June 14, Tim and Meg Shelly welcomed the Indiana Plein Air Painters Association (IPAPA) to the recently restored Boyhood Home of T.C. Steele. The fine weather encouraged 26 painters, including the Treasurer of the Friends, Charlie Matson, to make the trip to Waveland and put their impressions on canvas. Local residents inspected the works and shared refreshments with the artists. The President of the Friends of T.C. Steele State Historic Site, Stephanie Dean, attended the wrap up activities and presented the Shellys with a framed print of T.C. Steele recently recovered painting as a gift of appreciation from the Friends. Tim and Meg are also showing their support of Indiana artists by rotating an impressive collection of paintings in the restored home which has already been visited by several school groups. To learn more about the Home and related activities, go to T.C. Steele Boyhood Home on Facebook. If you come to Waveland, be sure to visit the Waveland-Brown Township Library, it boasts a large T.C. Steele oil that was a gift of the artist. The scene is local, although no one is sure exactly where. The library is a short three minute/ two block walk from Steele s boyhood home and is an outstanding architectural example of the typical small town Indiana Andrew Carnegie Library design. The Steele boyhood home is located at 110 South Cross Street in Waveland, IN. Tim and Meg Shelly of Elkhart, IN have purchased the home where the artist lived from age five through attending college prep school at the Waveland Collegiate Institute. The Shelly's are distant relatives of T.C. Steele.
