Martians, Cows, and Mystical Creatures
"Martians, Cows, and Mystical Creatures" has arrived at Southern Indiana Center for the Arts (SICA). October’s gallery show by Silas Cheo will open with a reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m Thursday, Oct. 8, at the center, 2001 N. Ewing St. in Seymour.
The subjects of Cheo’s most recent paintings performing “everyday” tasks allow the viewer to relate to the subject and find humor in the motif whether it is a cow, a pig, or even an alien species.
Cheo’s work primarily involves paintings and drawings depicting animals and otherworldly creatures. The work spans from ink and pastel drawings to paintings in acrylic and oil.
Come Join Silas's Workshop
In addition to the exhibit, Cheo will teach a workshop Saturday, Oct. 10, and Sunday, Oct. 11, at a Jackson County dairy farm. The workshop will start each day at 11 a.m with Cheo doing an introduction and demonstration. Participants will then break off and paint, with Cheo making rounds to answer questions and give pointers. The day will conclude with a showcase and discussion of that day’s work.
There are three package options available for the workshop:
1. Bring your own supplies is $100,
2. Attend and have paint and brushes provided is $225
3. Attend with all the needed materials provided is $275.
Due to COVID-19 participants will be asked to practice social distancing and wear masks when social distancing is not possible. Participants are encouraged to bring their own food and drinks.
