Local Artist Competes in Lt. Governor’s Competition

In January of this year, Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann put out the call for female artists from Indiana.  She was requesting submissions of their art for a shot at having it put on display in her front office at the State House. Becky  Campbell of Shelbyville decided to answer the call and recently made a submission.

Becky Campbell Watercolor

Her piece is titled “First Lady“, and includes a portrait of a female cardinal, the cardinal being our state bird. In composing her piece, she drew inspiration from her many trips to our local nature preserve, Symbiosis.  Also featured in the painting are two common, local flora, the pawpaw fruit and pokeweed.  The piece is a watercolor painting, 30×40 inches framed and is valued at $575.00.

Becky is a Shelbyville resident who studied at the Herron School of Art and the Southside Art League in Greenwood. She has a studio and gallery on the Big Blue River, approximate 4 miles northeast of Public Square. The gallery is open by appointment only. Becky teaches watercolor, basic art for kids, and will host painting parties at your location for adults and children. You may contact her at 317-364-1745.

Let’s wish her luck! That painting would definitely look great in the State House and its content represents Shelby County and Indiana superbly.
