One hundred artworks from our book Painting Indiana III: Heritage of Place are now on display at the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette. The work of T. C. Steele, William Forsyth, J. Ottis Adams, Otto Stark, and Richard Gruelle, known collectively as the Hoosier Group, established plein air (“in the open air”) painting as a major art form in Indiana. The vitality of this style is represented in the book and the accompanying exhibit, which runs through March 2. This exhibit will continue to travel to museums in Fort Wayne, Richmond, Evansville, and Muncie.
Copies of Painting Indiana III are available for sale in the museum gift shop. You can also purchase books from the IU Press website.
