Now’s your chance to help GROW THE ARTS and CULTURE
in Montgomery County!

Our theme this year is draped in Grecian dress…Ancient Athens was the world's most powerful and civilized city in the 5th century. The capital and largest city of Greece, Athens was the height of its cultural achievements. Known to be the center of the arts and learning and sometimes referred to as the cradle of Western Civilization. 

"Known as the Athens of Indiana since the early 1900’s for its culture, progressiveness, and abundance of nationally known writers, Crawfordsville today still embodies many of these same qualities. Two of our most treasured cultural amenities are the Lew Wallace Study, where the famed Civil War General wrote the novel Ben-Hur; and Wabash College, an all-male private liberal arts college founded in 1832." (

Growing the Arts and Culture
Guests will be entertained with artistic surprises at Athens Arts 5-7 pm before moving to the Crawfordsville Country Club for a creative dining experience.

The evening’s festivities include Silent Auction with Buy-it-Now opportunities.

Featured Artist
Karen Patton
Opening reception April 11, 6-8pm

For the last ten years Karen has had the desire to paint a series of paintings on gateways, windows and doors. Doors and gateways represent our desire to see what is on the other side if we should we choose to enter. What adventures will happen to us if we risk entering? Will it change our lives? Will we see things in a different way? What does the architecture of an entryway say to the viewer? Is it inviting, intimidating, awesome or threatening? 

"I hope you are as excited about the paths in your life as I have been in mine and are willing to go through that door." - Karen Patton
