This Summer at the Gallery
Dear Gallery Supporters,
June has started off strong with a big contingent of artists and art lovers at the First Look Reception for the 44th annual Indiana Heritage Arts Exhibition and Sale which fills three rooms in the Gallery. Paintings by Indiana’s top professional artists are on display and are for sale. You can preview a visit by clicking on the link to a 3d tour of the exhibit. See the paintings on your phone or home computer then plan a visit to the Gallery to see them in person.
As part of our celebration of IHA and our great Indiana artists, we invite you to join IHA along with the T.C. Steele State Historic Site for an event called “Painting Selma’s Garden” on Saturday, June 18.
A select group of IHA artists will spend the day painting the work of the other ”artist” at House of the Singing Winds, Selma Steele. She designed the gardens and tended to them. They have been fully restored and you can watch the artists at work during the day, admission free. From 5:30-8:00pm, join us for an open house featuring wine, food, and live music in the beautiful Visitor’s Center. Tours of the gardens, the Steele home and the Steele studio can be enjoyed on this special evening. A wet paint sale of the art created that day will be offered for sale that night and through July 9.
Reservations are required and can be made by calling the Brown County Art Gallery at 812-988-4609. $45.00 per person.
You can enjoy both the IHA exhibit and the Steele Site open house by parking at the Gallery and taking a shuttle that will be running between the Gallery and the Site from 5:00-8:30. Gallery hours will be extended that night until 8:30.
Please support both IHA, the T.C. Steele Site, and our great artists by supporting this fund-raising event.
Next at the Gallery is the opening of the Art Association Summer Show. Work is arriving daily, and a full display will be ready in the next few days.
Hope to see you in beautiful Brown County this June!
