The Best Hoosier Artists Exhibit

Annual Exhibition Intake is June 8, 2024 and will run through July 13, for Indiana Artist's Exhibit.

This year's Juror is Bruce Neville, a signature member of the Ohio Watercolor Society, an Associate member of the American Watercolor Society, and a Signature member of the Cincinnati Art Club. Neville has won numerous awards and honors including the RAM Richmond Art Museum Award of Excellence, CAC Viewpoint Award, Boston Mills Award of Best in Show, and two years Best in Watercolor at Carmel International in Carmel, IN.

We have two original paintings by Will Vawter. We will have a gathering and take time to see his use of color, composition, and detail. Take time to copy his stokes or simply appreciate them.

A "Pause for Words"

An Aerosolized Thought

 How long does a word linger in the air

after it’s spoken?

Dismantled: A soggy leaf, underfoot;

Eternalized: a cotton seed, out of reach.

How far

does it stray?

And where will it take us

if we learn to listen?

Indiana Writer's Center - IWC:

Teachers: Indiana Summer Institute for Creative Teaching Returns for 2024! You can sign up to be notified.

The conference will take place July 10-12 in Central Indiana.

Teachers are some of our state’s best creative problem solvers and innovators. Great educators take risks, learn, reflect, and collaborate. Those same attributes are the building blocks of creativity. The Summer Institute for Creative Teaching, which began in 2023, will return in 2024 with an expanded set of sessions, offering Indiana educators the chance to gain skills and knowledge on incorporating creativity into the classroom. For more information, sign up:
