BEAD celebrates August with exhibit of new artwork from Norma Pope
BEAD exhibits works by local artist Norma Pope in the City Hall Atrium at 401 N. Morton St. The exhibit will be on display from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays, and evening and weekend hours when City Hall is open for meetings. There will be a public reception for this exhibit from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on August 30. Norma Pope was born and raised in Bloomington where she and her six siblings grew up tending the family farm. When Norma was in her mid-30s and raising five children with her husband, Roy, she started attending classes at IU, where she studied fine arts under Professors Bonnie Sklarskey and Robert Barnes. Her preferred media are watercolor and pastel and her subject matter is usually farm life, with many of her paintings recalling childhood memories of Southern Indiana farms. From 1990 to 2003 Norma was the artist in residence at Billie Creek Village in Rockville, Ind. Her influences include work by T.C. Steele, Vincent Van Gogh, Mary Cassatt and Claude Monet.
