Brown County Art Gallery 2010 Colloctor Showcase

The Brown County Art Gallery Foundation located in Nashville In. launched its largest fundraiser of the year with the 2010 Collector’s Showcase. The foundation has done an excellent job in the past providing art patrons with wonderful examples of art work from past Indiana artists. This year’s event was no exception, featuring oils and watercolors from artist Edward K. Williams. For those interested in being the first to view the artwork, the gallery doors opened at 5:00 pm on Saturday October 9th with a reservation only VIP reception for 45.00 per person. Admission included complimentary beverages throughout the evening. Patrons not interested in the VIP admission could also enter the event at 6:00 pm for a reservation only general admission fee of  35.00 with beverages available for purchase. Catering was provided by Oliver’s Barbeque and music by Anson Hohne Jazz Trio.

On Sunday October 10th  the doors opened to the general public from noon to 5:00 for a 7.00 admission fee.  All attendees of the Saturday and Sunday event received a full color catalogue with pictures of E. K Williams work on display at the show. As with all showcase events, the foundation depends on collectors to loan works of art for the show and requires a lot of hard work and planning by the foundation and its volunteerss to make the event a reality. It is recommended for anyone with an interest in past Indiana artists, to take the time to attend the event and at the same time benefit the foundation through admission fees.

Beginning with the highly regarded Hoosier Group artists, Theodore Clement Steele, John Otis Adams and William Forsyth who entered the first exhibition, to the present day artists Todd Reifers, Hattie Stanton and Jerry Smith to name a few.
