On Saturday, June 16th, at 2:00 pm, The Venue Fine Art & Gifts will host a final reception for the consummate Indiana Artist, Ron Elkins.
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 was a long- time member of the Brown County Art Guild, and is currently a member of the Brown County Art Gallery.
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 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.”
Ron is being honored as a Special Judge for this year’s Indiana Heritage Arts Show, an unprecedented honor. He has thus far been unable to attend recent events at the Venue, and his Hospice care-giver produced a CD interview of Ron, in his stead.
