From the Indiana Heritage Arts Board of Directors...

The COVID-19 Pandemic has created many changes and the annual IHA Exhibition and Sale is no exception. In order to work within the COVID Protocols of the Brown County Art Gallery, the IHA Board has made adjustments to this year’s show. We hope that everyone understands and will continue to work together to make this year’s show as good as it can be. Changes include NO OPENING RECEPTION. Winners will be announced on all social media platforms on Friday, October 23 and all paintings will be available for purchase online once the winners have been announced.

Please help us spread the word and encourage all artists to submit their work. Call for Entry online registration is now open - deadline is September 25. 

We appreciate everyone’s support in this move, we all feel it was the right decision for the current situation regarding the virus and the timing of the June event.

On behalf of the IHA Board, thank you! Keep watching our website and FB page for updates.

Advertising and Donations 2020

Each year we solicit advertising and donations for our annual Exhibition & Sale, which is held in the historic Brown County Art Gallery. Over 100 original works of art are on display throughout several rooms in the gallery from artists who have ties to Indiana. There is over $20,000 of cash prizes that are awarded to the artists in various categories. 

To enhance the show, we compile a show catalog that contains all of the artists who were juried into the show with their artwork. We also solicit ads to help offset our expenses and awards. Donations can also be made, and donors can request to sponsor awards in any amount from $250 and up.    

This year we will be enhancing the benefits of our advertisers and award sponsors by posting on our Facebook and Instagram pages, putting a full-color version of the catalog on our website and online store and printed a limited number of black and white copies for distribution during the show. 

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, donor or placing an ad, please complete this form and return it to us by October 12. Read our advertising specs here.

Thank you for your support of Indiana Heritage Arts and the artists.
