Farms & Flowers of the Heartland


Thorntown, IN – January 31, 2008 – Don’t miss your opportunity to see the paintings of native born Boone County artists, Ginny Daggy and Ed Rice. The oil paintings of these two artists, both residing in Thorntown, Indiana can be seen in the second floor grand studio of Sugar Creek Art Center from Thursday, February 7, 2008 to Saturday, March 1, 2008.

Creativity came early to Ginny Daggy who creating artistic images on the farm where she grew up. Her love of nature attained during her childhood days has inspired her artwork. After finishing her role as a wife, mother and working professional, she is finally able to pursue her true love of painting. Working in both her home studio in the Thorntown community and her “Heart studio” at the Sugar Creek Art Center, she finds contentment in expressing herself with landscape as well as floral images. Ginny uses a heart symbol as a signature on her pieces or incorporates the heart symbol in her artwork.

Ed Rice began his art training at the age of 45. Retirement has afforded him the opportunity to pursue his love of painting the heartland of Indiana. He especially enjoys painting farmland and machinery. Ed regularly attends seminars with local artists such as Rob O’Dell. He maintains a studio at Sugar Creek Art Center and shows his works at local venues.

“Culture at the Creek” Reception, held the Second Friday of each month, will celebrate the artwork of these two exceptional artists and the Art Center’s 24 resident artists during special extended hours on Friday, February 8 th, 6 – 9 pm.
