The 83rd Annual Hoosier Salon Exhibition
Don’t miss your opportunity to see the 83 nd Annual Exhibition of the Hoosier Salon, an impressive selection of juried works of art by Indiana artists. Tour III of the traveling exhibition will grace the walls of Sugar Creek Art Center from Monday, January 7 – Monday, February 4.
The Hoosier Salon began in 1925 when the Daughters of Indiana opened the first exhibition of Indiana artists at the Marshall Field and Company galleries in Chicago. Naming their show after the famous French “salons” of the 19th century, the women were eager to prove that Indiana artists deserved national recognition. The high quality of art was applauded by critics and the public alike, making the first exhibition, which included works by such notables as T.C. Steele, an unqualified success.
“Culture at the Creek” Reception, held the Second Friday of each month, will celebrate the traveling exhibit and the Art Center’s 27 resident artists during special extended hours on Friday, January 11 th from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Studio 102, the Art Center’s gift shop, offers its visitors a tempting selection of exclusive, one-of-a-kind creations that are perfect for holiday gift-giving. A portion of the proceeds from all sales benefit the not-for-profit 501(c)(3) Art Center.
Sugar Creek Art Center offers art classes for all ages and hosts artists’ studios. From oil to watercolor… rosemaling to pottery to wearable art…textiles to glass to multimedia… visitors continue to be impressed when discovering this special place – a haven for creative expression nestled in the countryside.
