Rece­­­­­nt Work: An Exhibition and Sale of Paintings by Wyatt LeGrand

06:00 pm to 07:00 pm
The Venue

On Friday, March 23, The Venue will host a reception for recent work–an exhibition and sale of paintings by Wyatt LeGrand. Wyatt LeGrand continues to garner recognition as one of Indiana’s Art Treasures. His plein air paintings have brought him awards from The Hoosier Salon, Indiana Heritage Arts, The Indiana Artists Club, Plein Air Magazine, and Oil Painters of America. His paintings are now in the permanent collection of The Indiana State Museum.

In Wyatt’s own words, “My inspiration and drive comes from nothing other than the experience of putting brush to canvas, letting the things I see before me flow from eye, to heart, to hand, to brush.”

For this exhibition and sale, Wyatt has selected his favorite paintings and drawings from among his most recent works. In them he demonstrates his impressive drawing skills and his eye for vivid color and action. These paintings are a treat to see and own.

Our fine selection of paintings, jewelry, ceramics, and objets d’art will also be on display for purchase. You can visit the following link for free parking options near The Venue: http://bloomington.in.gov/parksmart
