- Brown County Art Colony
The Brown County Art Colony is a
artist colonyformed in Nashville and Brown County, Indiana. Adolph Shulzis considered to be the founder of the colony, encouraging many Indiana and regional artists to come to Brown County to paint. Though artists had been coming to Brown county as early as 1870, the colony is considered to have been firmly established in 1907 when the noted painter T. C. Steelemoved there. The dean of Indiana painters, Steele built a home and studio on a large plot of land west of Nashville in and made it his permanent home. Its proximity to Indiana Universityin Bloomington allowed Steele to accept a position as artist in residencethere in 1922.
An art association was incorporated in April 1927 with
Carl Grafas the first president. In 1954, two associations merged into the Brown County Art Guild, Inc. which continues to maintain a gallery in Nashville.
Some of the noted Brown County artists include:
T. C. Steele
C. Carey Cloud
Adrian J. Miller
V. J. Cariani
C. Curry Bohm
L. O. Griffith
Glen Cooper Henshaw
