“Quite an eclectic mix” of art will be on display Friday evening at the Logansport Art Association’s 102nd Annual Fine Art Show, the director of the association said, with a combination of artists both familiar and new to the area, whose works range across a number of different mediums.
Rachel Ellington, director of the association, said the pieces featured in the show fall into a number of different styles, both two-dimensional and three-dimensional, including oils, landscapes, watercolors, portraits, colored pencils, sculpture and jewelry.
Mixed-media works, combining two or more mediums, will be included in the show as well, Ellington continued. A canvas filled with playing cards mixed with paint and typography and a portrait painted on a box with flowers coming out of it were two she said come to mind.
Perhaps just as diverse as the pieces are the artists themselves, Ellington said. They range from young to old, veteran to amateur, natives and those new to the area.
“We have a nice, rounded mix of participants this year,” she said.
Ellington went on to say one of the motivations behind the show is to help new artists feel comfortable as they break further into their fields.
“Showing artwork for the first time is hard,” Ellington continued, adding that she hopes by mingling with older, more experienced artists, new artists will become more accustomed to the pace of the show.
This year marks the 102nd Fine Art Show, which the association has held annually since its founding in 1911.
“It’s always one of the biggest shows of the year for us,” she said.
The show begins at 7 p.m. Friday at the Logansport Art Association, 424 Front St. For $10, attendees can view the artwork, take part in a wine tasting provided by Indian Trail Wines, snack on hors d’oeuvres brought by organizers and participate in the silent auction. All of the proceeds will go toward the association’s programming.
