About the Historical Brown County Art Gallery and Artists Association
The Brown County Art Gallery was established in 1926 by the early members of an important regional art colony who began exploring rural southern Indiana in the 1890's. These early artists had been trained in the best art schools of Europe and America and were attracted to the rolling hills of Brown County because it offered both dramatic landscapes and interesting people to serve as subjects for their work. In 1926, they formed the Brown County Art Gallery Artists Association and set up a gallery in a former grocery store donated by a patron. For over eight decades, the Gallery has managed to survive wars, depressions, recessions, fire, and relocation, making it one of the oldest galleries in the United States. The Artists Association website can be found at

The Brown County Art Gallery has recently expanded in size to be able handle larger crowds, more gallery events, and art educational workshops in the future. The Gallery will be running events through out the year celebrating Indiana's 2016 Bicentennial celebration which aims to honor our state's 200 years of history and it's artists.
