The 11th annual October open house hosted by the Charlene Marsh Studio and Gallery in Brown County is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday to celebrate the autumn season and share new oil paintings featuring Yellowwood Sate Forest and other local inspirations.
Plein air and studio oil paintings by Marsh will be on exhibit and available for purchase. Marsh also will be conducting painting demonstrations throughout the event. There will be paints, brushes and supports available for anyone who wants to try their hand at painting. All materials are nontoxic and safe for all ages. There is no charge to create and take home your own painting.
Marsh’s hand-dyed, tufted fiber artwork, Massacre in the Brown County State Park, that has been on exhibit at the Indiana State Museum until just recently will be highlighted. The museum exhibit, Cause and Effect: Art that Speaks Out, featured 12 Indiana artists who have used their art to raise public awareness on a variety of topics, including human and animal rights and political and environmental issues.
Her line of 100% natural tree rubber yoga mats that feature sacred geometry and the chakras based on her fiber designs will be available, too.
Refreshments will be served at the free event, which will be at the gallery at 4013 Lanam Ridge Road, Nashville.
Tour the farm and stay for a hike in Yellowwood State Forest adjacent to the studio/gallery at 5 p.m. The hike is 2 to 3 miles long, up and down hills and many consider it rugged.
