MARSHALL -- Gaslight Art Colony is pleased to present Robin Edmundson as the featured artist for their June exhibit.
Edmundson grew up in northern Indiana in an farmhouse on a property full of old farm buildings. Her early goal was to learn as many languages as she could. In college, she studied linguistics and earned a Ph.D. in that field. She taught in various capacities at Indiana University for twenty-seven years. Always looking for creative outlets to balance her academic life, she learned to dye and weave and became an award winning fiber artist.
In 2011 she began blogging about rural life in southern Indiana. It took her a while to realize that she was still searching for a language that could express some things she wanted to say about life in rural southern Indiana, eventually discovering painting as a way to communicate her deep love and respect for the places and people of rural Indiana.
The June exhibit opening will be from 5-8 p.m. Saturday, June 15.
