Welcome to the Brown County Art Gallery

There is much to see in June!

The Indiana Heritage Arts Annual Exhibition and Sale is now open to the public through July 1. Visit over 100 award winning art from Indiana artists. The Gallery Artists Association has their summer show and it is spectacular!

Next up in July! Mark your calendars for July 9-20 | "The Cousins from Richmond are Coming! Get out the Good Dishes!"

This exhibit focuses on three early Brown County potteries. A wonderful exhibit of Brown County Pottery is being assembled as well as consignment pottery that will be offered for sale.
Many of you know that the Richmond Art Museum is closed for renovations. We are pleased to be providing a temporary home for our Richmond cousins. An exhibit of work from the Richmond Museum will open in conjunction with the pottery display. Saturday, July 8 | Join us for a wine and cheese reception and a pottery program. Exhibit opens at 1 pm. $10 admission includes program and reception.

We look forward to having you visit the Gallery this summer - general admission is always free with plenty of parking.

Our friends at WGN in Chicago recently visited Brown County and produced this wonderful video, thanks to all involved!

State Road 135 Closures | 7 Bridges Receiving Work

135 Bridge Work

Traveling to Brown County may become a little more challenging this season....our best advice is to take I65 to State Road 46, head west to Brown County and Nashville. Road repairs are a necessity and planning ahead will save everyone from stressful detours.


MORGAN, BROWN & JACKSON COUNTIES—A number of bridge closures in Morgan, Brown and Jackson Counties will detour State Road 135 traffic this year. According to Indiana Department of Transportation officials, the state has awarded contracts to three different contractors for rehabilitating or replacing seven structures along S.R. 135. At some sites, work is scheduled to begin April 4.
