Welcome to the Brown County Art Gallery Online
Since 1926 the historic Brown County Art Gallery has been home to the best of Indiana's artists. Today we provide exhibit and workshop space to 60 current artists, as well as a major Permanent Collection featuring the Indiana works of Gustave Baumann, Glenn Cooper Henshaw, bird artist Wm Zimmerman and over 500 works by the early colony artists
That legacy continues with current members of the Brown County Artists Association and Indiana Heritage Arts. Their work can be found in the Gallery's exhibition rooms and in IHA's annual exhibition and sale. The Gallery Foundation offers consignment work by the early Brown County artists along a wide range of educational books and materials for sale in our gift shop.
For now our Gallery is closed, but our online store offers a way to see what we have to offer and to buy. Enjoy your visit.
Indiana Heritage Arts
In the late 1970s, a group of local artists organized Indiana Heritage Arts to support the current members of the Brown County art community. The principal activity of this non-profit group was an annual, juried art competition to take place each June.
Today, IHA makes its home at the historic Brown County Art Gallery in Nashville. What started as a local competition has grown statewide, open to any artist with ties to Indiana. The annual June exhibition and sale is one of the largest art competitions in the Midwest, handing out as much as $20,000 in prize money and purchase awards to the winners.IHA has a statewide membership of artists and patrons and depends on generous donors including corporate sponsors, local merchants, along with loyal collectors, to continue the mission of supporting Indiana’s top artists.
IHA is proud to have a gallery space inside the Brown County Art Gallery. View their member's work during your visit or view their gallery online to purchase a painting. Online gallery: IhaGallery.org/
