MARIA STEIN – The ninth annual Shrine Art Show & Sale is set for June 22-28.
This event, held in conjunction with Maria Stein Country Fest, is free and open to the public.
The display will be located on the second floor of the Shrine in the Gast Gallery. Guests can see thought-provoking works of art from artists all over the United States, including some available for purchase. Guests can cast votes for their favorite piece for the People’s Choice Award.
Additionally, an abstract piece donated by James F. Dicke II will be available for purchase. Dicke was born in 1945 in San Angelo, Texas. Raised in Ohio and Indiana, he returned to Texas for college at Trinity University and has built a thriving career as a businessman in Ohio.
Dicke is also an artist. A photographer from the age of 5, he started painting at Culver Military Academy in 1963 under the tutelage of the late Warner Williams, a bas-relief, realist artist. Later, he studied with Nelson Shanks of Pennsylvania. Dicke’s work has been influenced by his extensive collection of 19th century, 2Oth century and contemporary art.
