In the market for some new Indiana art to decorate your home or office? Want to learn more about plein air (on location) painting? Come to the Indiana Landmarks Center on Friday, September 20 between 7 and 10 pm to browse through the works of art selected for inclusion in a coffee-table book published by Indiana Landmarks, Indiana Plein Air Painters Association (IPAPA), and IU Press.
Painting Indiana III: Heritage of Place will be the third book in a series initiated by IPAPA. The first book, Painting Indiana: Portraits of Indiana’s 92 Counties, was published in 2000 and Painting Indiana II: The Changing Face of Agriculture was published in 2006. One hundred paintings featuring a wide range of historical places were juried by the editor of Plein Air magazine, Steve Doherty, for Painting Indiana III. Along with the paintings will be an essay about plein air painting in Indiana and the observations and obstacles that accompany this art form. There will also be never-before published works by The Hoosier Group, Richmond School, and plein air painting pioneers included.
After the premiere at the Indiana Landmarks’ headquarters this Friday the book and art show will be on display through October 13. It will then travel to several sites throughout the state. Books and artwork will be sold at all the exhibits and selected artists will be available for signings.
