“Homage to Ron Elkins”

On Friday, June 1st Gallery Walk, and thereafter, The Venue Fine Art & Gifts is proud to present an Exhibition of the paintings of the consummate Indiana Artist, Ron Elkins.   The Venue will also host a discussion with Mr. Elkins on Tuesday, June 5th, beginning at 5:30.

Ron received his art education from Indiana University and the Art Institute of Chicago. An accomplished plein air artist, Ron’s oil and pastel works have earned awards from around the nation. He has been awarded the prestigious designation of PSA, one of only approximately 400 artists so honored nationally, by the Pastel Society of America. A master painter and instructor, Ron is a long- time and proud member of the Brown County Art Guild.

Although Ron has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, and is now in hospice care, he will be present and participate in this exhibition, as his health allows. He looks forward to this opportunity to visit, once again, with his many collectors, students, and friends. A portion of all show sales will be donated by The Venue to fund an annual award honoring Ron, to be presented at the Indiana Heritage Arts Annual Award Show.

For Gallery Walk, The Venue will provide refreshments and a spectacular homemade gourmet soup! On Tuesday, The Venue will provide

refreshments, and a complete collection of Fine Art and Gifts will also be on display for viewing and purchase. Parking is available in the lot on the corner of 4th and Grant.
