Welcome to the Brown County Art Gallery

We are over halfway through our 90th year and what a year it has been! Our newly expanded space has seen our visitor numbers skyrocket to a record high of more than 1500 art lovers in June!

There is much to see as well. Our Gallery is filled with historic art by our Indiana Masters along with the work of our Art Association members. They are 45 members strong and a new show goes up every three months. The Indiana Heritage Arts Gallery features pieces from prizewinners of their June Exhibition along with new paintings from member artists.

August begins with an important exhibit of Indiana Printmakers including dazzling work by Gustave Baumann.

In fact, a new exhibit goes up every month through December!

It's our anniversary and the Indiana Bicentennial! Visit often and enjoy the celebration of Indiana Art!
