Indiana Heritage Arts, Inc. is proud to announce we are entering the 43rd year of our annual Exhibition & Sale, held in the historic Brown County Art Gallery in beautiful Brown County, Indiana. The exhibition attracts entrants from Indiana and artists who have ties with Indiana. It is regarded as one of the top exhibitions in the state. The Exhibition & Sale offers over $20,000 in cash awards, including our IHA Gold Best of Show Award in the amount of $5,000.

Indiana Heritage Arts, Inc. believes in judging the works of the artists in person. The judge will view each painting in the Brown County Art Gallery and make their selection based on their criteria. Because of this judging technique, we require that all artists drop off their artwork to the gallery in advance of the judging. Drop off details are provided below and can be found on our website -
