Welcome to the Brown County Art Gallery
August at the Gallery will entail a vault remodel project and as a result a major portion of the Gallery’s Permanent Collection will be on display. We also have two videos playing in our Art Education Studio. A good place to spend a warm afternoon.
September brings “The Birds are Back in Town”, a program by the Indiana Raptor Center to celebrate the reprinting of William Zimmerman’s iconic book, “The Birds of Indiana.” We will have books for sale and live birds in the Studio.
The Porcelain Painters of Indiana practice an art form that dates back centuries and has found an important home in Indiana. A well-known porcelain painting school is located in Indiana and attracts artists from around the world. Our exhibit features a program, a demonstration and a workshop.
Collector’s Showcase 2019 will be an event that includes beautiful paintings, a gala reception and a play. “A Sitting with Marie Goth, Time for Sketches, Memories and a Pot of Tea” is a one act play written by Lyn Letsinger-Miller with television and stage actress Jill Tasker portraying Marie. The setting is in her studio as she prepares to do some sketches for a portrait. The subject is you….the audience. Jill is spending the summer exploring the character she is portraying, a role she takes very seriously.
