Ninth Annual Downtown Fall ART Show
The Gala Opening and Awards Ceremony will be on Main Street outside the courthouse at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24. Early arrivals will be treated to live music performed by Gary Ketchum and the Montgomery County Civic Band. Art League members will be at the white canopy at the courthouse to provide free tour brochures and offer opportunities to purchase unique pieces of art. The Athens of Indiana Arts Studios & Gallery will be open late this opening night as well.

This very special celebratory exhibit will feature the work of 38 former artists who have shown their work in three or more previous years’ Fall Exhibits, and six Lifetime Honorary Members of the Art League have also accepted the invitation. The Honorary Members are Greg Garman, Rob O’Dell, Peg Shearer, Jerry Smith, Marilyn Wells, and John Zimmerman. These illustrious artists have offered more than 100 pieces for display. Elementary students will be featured in Dance by Deborah windows. At Cabbages and Kings, visitors will see the award winning work of high school seniors from each of the three county high schools. Two special interest windows will focus the countries of Sierra Leone (at Kirtley, Taylor, Sims, Chadd & Minnette) and Haiti (at Nogginz).

This year the Art Exhibit Headquarters/Information Center will be at the Athens of Indiana Arts Studios & Gallery at 113 N. Washington St. Tour information, brochures, sales information and the opportunity to enter a drawing for a lovely painting by local artist Alice Harpel will be available 12:00-4:00pm daily, Sept. 25 – Oct. 3. After hours questions about purchase opportunities may be directed to 765.435.2562 or 765.366.4776.
