Indiana Heritage Arts

45th Annual Exhibition & Sale

June 9 – July 8, 2023


…a Juried Fine Art Exhibition and Sale of traditional and representational Indiana art following the legacy of the artists who founded the Brown County Art Colony in the early 1900s.

From the Show Chair

Welcome all artists and patrons to the 45th Annual Indiana Heritage Arts Exhibition and Sale. We on the board of directors strive to present an exhibition of the highest quality, and one that provides professional opportunities for artists while also continuing the amazing legacy of Indiana art. 

We are also thrilled at the number of artists who have registered for our “Painting Selma’s Garden” event at the T. C. Steele State Historic Site. This event involves three Brown County Art Organizations. In addition to IHA, the Steele Site and the Brown County Art Gallery Foundation are working together to promote art and history at one of Indiana’s most beautiful and historic venues. 

I wish to thank our entire board of directors, and especially president Rick Kelley for his steady leadership, and Lyn Letsinger-Miller, who is invaluable in hanging the exhibition as well as many other tasks. I also wish to thank the Brown County Art Gallery employees Jeanne Bennett and Bern Waldhier for their help, and Tess Kean for her critical contributions toward the show catalog and website. 

I also wish to thank this year’s juror, Shanna Kunz, for coming all the way from Utah to judge the show. Shanna did a remarkable, thorough, and conscientious job, and was a delight to work with. 

Thanks to all who purchase our artist’s work, and thanks to the artists who create it, you enrich our lives with your efforts.
