Columbus Museum of Art and Design will feature a group exhibit by members of the Art Alliance of Brown County from Aug. 4 through 31 at The Gallery at Hotel Indigo.
“In the Garden: Works by Brown County Artists” is a group show of artists who are members of Art Alliance Brown County.
Works will include painting, pen and ink, photography, mixed media, quilting, weaving, gourd art and jewelry, all inspired, in some way, by the idea or actuality of gardens.
“Gardens, both cultured and wild, are an important part of life in Brown County,” show organizer Michele Heather Pollock said.
“Many of our artists are also accomplished gardeners, and many Art Alliance members return again and again to the plants and animals found in gardens.”
That importance of gardens for artists in Brown County goes all back to the founding of the art colony there. T.C. Steele, a painter who moved to Brown County in 1907, lived among and painted the beautiful gardens at House of the Singing Winds, planted and cared for by his wife, Selma.
These gardens are still maintained and can be seen at T.C. Steele State Historic Site.
Art Alliance Brown County is a grass-roots organization whose artists work in a wide variety of media, and who gather together in order to network, educate, advertise, inspire and encourage one another.
More information about Art Alliance Brown County can be found at ArtAllianceBrownCounty.com.
The public is invited to attend a special meet-the-artists reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Aug. 9 at the hotel.
