Welcome to the Brown County Art Gallery

Collectors' Showcase 2016 featuring C.W. Mundy

The entire Gallery will be filled with magnificent art. Paintings by our early Hoosier Masters from private collections to celebrate our past, hanging with the work of current Art Association members to celebrate the present. Art Association members have spent the last year painting Brown County for this special exhibit. Their work will be offered for sale with proceeds benefiting the Gallery Foundation.

As a link from the past to the present we present C.W. Mundy: "the Artist's Collection". The exhibit touches on his beginnings in Brown County to his status as an American Treasure. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see a lifetime of work by a great Hoosier Master.
