Welcome to the Brown County Art Gallery


As we head into the Holiday Season, we are grateful for the love and support you have shown for the historic Brown County Art Gallery. When the pandemic hit, the Foundation Board was determined to protect our Gallery and emerge strong on the other side. With your help, we are meeting that goal.

We are looking forward to 2021 and we have some wonderful events planned. We are still mindful of the COVID 19 challenge and sadly, we will not be holding our Victorian Tea or the Mabel B. Annis Student Art Completion in 2021. We are looking forward to their return in 2022.

Our exhibit schedule, however is one of the strongest we have had in several years. We will conclude 2021 with our annual Collectors' Showcase - a celebration of our Brown County State Park. Artist Tim Greatbatch has spent two years painting our glorious park and his masterwork will go on display next fall, all paintings will be available for purchase.

In the meantime, you can visit our galleries in person or visit them online. The Brown County Art Gallery Artists Association and Indiana Heritage Arts have new shows for the holiday, and we continue to receive new Consignment Art pieces.

Have a safe Holiday and keep the Gallery in mind for your year end giving.
