CourthousePaintingPosterCalling ALL artists! Marshall County is partnering with Indiana State Bar Association to participate in the collection of original art work that depicts historic or current courthouses located in each Indiana County. Thus far, the collection of artwork includes forty county courthouse paintings by professional and amateur artists in a variety of styles. The Indiana State Bar Association courthouse collection is highly eclectic and contains oils, watercolors, pen and ink drawings, pastels and more.

Heartland Artists Gallery is hosting the Marshall County Courthouse ART Project. First place will be awarded $1000.00 and the winning art project will be on permanent display at the Indiana State Bar Association in Indianapolis. Requirements are no photography, no abstracts, no wet paint, must be framed, and all pieces must be for sale. Artists must be 16 years or older, entries must be original work, and completed within the last year.

All entry forms need to be postmarked by June 3, 2017 with a $10 entry fee per piece enclosed. Artwork must be hand-delivered to Heartland Artists Gallery, 101 North Michigan Street, Plymouth, Indiana, on June 9 and 10, 2017. Judging will take place during the week of June 12-16, 2017. Artwork will be displayed at the Marshall County Visitor Center June 16-June 24, 2017 in conjunction with “Art in the Street.” The artwork will be juried by a panel of judges that include Hon.
