In conjunction with the Main Gallery exhibition OVER THERE: REMEMBERING THE GREAT WAR, the John Streetman Alcove will feature a September 10 – December 31, 2017 exhibition of trench art on loan from the Indiana Military History Museum in Terre Haute. The term “trench art” is usually associated with World War I, when soldiers passed the time when not in combat by collecting and fashioning spent armaments into decorative objects. Often displaying remarkable metalworking skill and a high level of artistry, these objects of art range from utilitarian items to small pieces of sculpture.
Faced with a constant battle against boredom and isolation, prisoners of war produced trench art as did a civilian population who, despite the danger, would collect battlefield debris to transform into souvenirs for soldiers. Included in this exhibition are examples of trench art from both World Wars.

First Thursdays with Rosalie Waranius Vass will be on September 14, 2017 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. This free event is taking placing at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science in downtown Evansville, Indiana.

Rosalie Waranius Vass spent her youth in the Kettle Moraine area of Wisconsin, in the small town of Dundee. Growing up in this region provided Waranius Vass with a vast play ground to observe and explore. A place where livestock grazed and seasons changed; a place where life embraced many colors and textures. This is where the diversified landscape and rural setting lent her many subjects for her artwork. She was always passionate about art and drawing. By the age of 13, she knew she wanted to be an artist. But, in order to get an early start with her art education, she had to attend a private high school in Fond du Lac. She then went onto Alverno College to get a degree in Fine Art and Teaching. She taught art for 14 years until opening Thistle Hill Farm Studio and she now paints full-time.
The paintings by Rosalie Waranius Vass are narratives worked in brilliant color, grand visual texture, careful composition and vivid imagination. The non-traditional paintings are fun and light hearted. Some of the imagery has sheep with birds standing on their backs, horses prancing around a hilly landscape with a rainbow in the background or a little island upon which is a grouping of houses with little puffs of smoke above their chimneys. Her imagery may appear as a child has drawn them but the way she incorporates the elements of design attest to her artistic craftsmanship.
Waranius Vass is very apt at controlling the viewer’s eye with her use of color and the composition if the picture plane. In the painting “Light Changes Everything”, the moon is emitting a spotlight illuminating a pie shaped sliver of a forest where a mass of birds have congregated. This causes the viewer to stop and ponder the meaning of it. “Looking Down Reaching Up”, pictured here, is an image where the sun is asserting its own gravitational pull on the mountain and trees pulling them closer to its warmth. The yellows in the upper right corner balance with the warm green tones in the lower left allowing the cooler hues to incorporate rather than compete.
Rosalie Waranius Vass paintings are multimedia creations. She works with watercolor and acrylic paint on watercolor paper with an overlay of Prisma color pencils. Her work will be on exhibition from September 7, 2017 to November 1, 2017 in the Art Sales Gallery of the Museum Gift Shop.
