Collectors' Showcase 2021: Indiana's Crown Jewel | October 2 - November 14
This year's Collectors' Showcase - Indiana's Crown Jewel features a 2-year exploration of the park with over 70 paintings by current Hoosier Master artist Tim Greatbatch.
Located in Nashville, Indiana - atop a ridge in the hills of beautiful Brown County, Tim’s studio is the center of his work as an artist. While the majority of his work centers on the landscape throughout the seasons, projects arise that feature the Village of Nashville (and other locales) and figurative works in both exterior and interior settings.
Like many of the early artists who came to Brown County, Timothy Greatbatch changed careers in mid-life. Several the early colony artists used their artistic skills in commercial ventures in large cities but chose to come to Brown County to work as fine artists. Tim Greatbatch made an even more dramatic change. By the age of forty, he was a highly recognized composer of contemporary orchestral and chamber music. He was well established in Philadelphia as an adjunct professor of music at the University of Pennsylvania and served as a guest lecturer at Swarthmore College and Princeton. But in the early 1990s he decided to become a painter.
Tim is very concerned with the health of our planet. Whenever possible, he has tried to tie his work and support to organizations such as the Nature Conservancy and the Central Indiana Land Trust, Inc.
Don't miss this extraordinary exhibit by Tim Greatbatch, all works will be available to purchase. Gallery hours: 10 am - 5 pm, Sunday Noon - 5 pm, free admission and free parking.
Nicknamed the “Little Smokies” because of the area’s resemblance to the Great Smoky Mountains, Brown County encompasses nearly 16,000 acres of rugged hills, ridges and fog-shrouded ravines. Glaciers from the most recent ice ages stopped short of the “hills o’ Brown,” but their meltwaters helped create the narrow ridges, steep slopes and deep gullies of Brown County State Park. Indiana’s largest park is a traditional fall color hot spot, with nearly 20 miles of tree-lined roads and many scenic vistas overlooking miles of uninterrupted forestland.
