39th annual Indiana Heritage Arts Annual Exhibit

IHA2017FBEvent

Indiana Heritage Arts is a month long exhibit show and sale of paintings, one of the largest in the Midwest, that attracts thousands of art lovers June 10 through July 1. Over 130 artists enter art work to be juried and selected for hanging and all paintings are for sale.

The popular People's Choice award of $500 will be awarded at the close of this year's show to the artist garnering the most votes from the viewing audience. This year the IHA Directors' Purchase Award  will honor the late Fran Rogers, a founding member of IHA and second president of the organization. Indiana Heritage Arts has acquired a permanent collection of more than 15 paintings that hang in the IHA space in the Brown County Art Gallery.

A generous donation from the George and Peggy Rapp family provided a space to exhibit prizewinning artists who compete in the Indiana Heritage Arts Annual Exhibition and Sale. IHA was founded in 1978 and stages one of the largest heritage style art competitions in the Midwest for artists with a tie to Indiana. The exhibit is held each June at the Brown County Art Gallery.

Some 200 artists enter over 400 paintings in hopes of being juried into the show. A judge narrows the field to around 130 paintings and chooses the winners, who will receive nearly $30,000 in prize money. The show runs for three weeks and the works are for sale. Another perk for being chosen for the show is the chance to exhibit in the Rapp Gallery for the next year.
