We are well into a year of celebration at the historic Brown County Art Gallery. We are in our 90th year and the State of Indiana is celebrating its Bicentennial. We have a full calendar of events, with more being added. We also have a new monthly newsletter you can receive by email so please find the spot on our web site to sign-up. We will alert you to all of our upcoming events, but let you know about what new treasures have arrived at the Gallery.

We are enjoying our newly expanded spaces and the many new visitors we are seeing each day. A schedule of workshops is in the works, including classes for children and those popular "Learn to Paint while enjoying Wine" events...We are calling ours "Burgundy and Brush"....perfect for a fun evening or great entertainment for a wedding shower! Keep in touch!

July 10-24 

Brown County Artists Go Coastal - sponsored by Dan Kraft.
Take a summer holiday to the ocean through the eyes of our early artists...this special historic exhibit of 50 paintings from private collections shows our early artists painting out of the woods and along the coast. On these occasions, they traded trees for ships and the result is pretty dazzling. Experts say the trip to the ocean proved to be an important break for the artists and a chance to paint exciting new subjects. Open daily during regular gallery hours.

Opening Night Reception | July 9 | 6 pm
Please join us for our Opening Night Reception of this special exhibit curated by Doug Runyan.
Wine, food, music, and a trip to the beach! | $25 per person
