Collector’s Showcase ~ An Amazing October Weekend
From that first fall in 1926, the early Brown County artists held a major opening at the Gallery when the leaves began to turn and visitors from across the Midwest headed for Nashville to enjoy the sights. It is in that tradition that
“Collector’s Showcase”was born.
On the second weekend of October, Indiana art collectors lend their paintings for a once-in-a-lifetime chance for the public to see works of art that have rarely been seen and in some cases, never been exhibited. The first night is a “reservations only” fundraiser to benefit the Foundation. It features music, wine, and food, all surrounded by the museum grade exhibit. Each visitor gets a full color
catalogue containing pictures of all the paintings and the stories that go with them.
On the second day of the exhibit, the doors are opened to the public at a nominal charge for a chance to see the paintings.
The 2012 Showcase is called "Treasure Hunt" and will focus on early Indiana art that collector's have found in the past 5 years.
Dates: October 13 reception (pre-paid reservation only) and October 14th.
