Program: Painting Indiana Rivers
Avon Waters has teamed up with four other artists to paint Indiana’s major waterways and rivers over the next two years. The best 100 paintings by the five artists will tour in exhibitions with the help of the Izaak Walton League. The paintings will illustrate the recreational and conservation efforts of Indiana waterways. You may follow the project’s progress by joining the Indiana Waterways Facebook Group page. Members are invited to bring a work they created during the past year for show and tell.
