Calling all artists! Whether you are amateur or professional, the Honeywell Center’s Clark Gallery will be hosting its annual 92 County Art Show between the dates of Jan. 9 through Feb. 9. Entries will be accepted from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 7. This competition is open to artists residing in all 92 counties in the State of Indiana. The 92 County Art Show is sponsored by local residents Robert and Ines Gillespie.
The art show is open to all ages, and consists of three primary categories; drawing, painting and other art forms. An entry fee of $20 includes up to three entries. For a list of the complete guidelines visit the Honeywell Center website at www.honeywellcenter.org.
The 92 County Art Show is just one way that the Clark Gallery supports the visual arts. The Clark Gallery hosts more than 10 exhibits per year and features students, amateurs, and professionals. Exhibits include the Wabash County Schools, Themed Art Competition, and Wabash Art Guild. Because the Gallery encompasses the semi-circle of the Honeywell Center Porter Lobby, foot traffic exceeds 170,000 guests per year. Nearly every exhibit hosts a reception to introduce the public to the art. All of this is done free of charge because the Clark Gallery is a part of the mission of The Honeywell Foundation.
The Honeywell Foundation seeks to provide artistic, social, cultural and recreational opportunities for all. The Foundation operates the Honeywell Center, Honeywell House, Eagles Theatre and the 13-24 Drive IN. All programs and activities are supported by gifts from individuals, businesses, the Indiana Arts Commission (a state agency) and the National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency).
