History

Promoting the Arts in
Harrison County since 2005

Harrison County Arts was incorporated in May of 2005 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization to give a handful of community minded artists the opportunity to bring art centered experiences and activities to Harrison County citizens through grants and many volunteer hours.  A few years later these volunteers opened The Artisan Center gallery at 117 E. Chestnut St. in Corydon IN. In 2016 the gallery moved to the current location at 121 E. Chestnut St. Harrison County Arts currently operates Harrison County Arts as a volunteer organization. Daily management, Docents, and board members are all positions supported by the efforts of our dedicated volunteers.

Funding Harrison County Arts is managed through the donations of our members, community supporters, commissions on artists sales and grants. Currently the gallery displays the artwork of over 40 artists and the gallery promotes the artists by sponsoring a minimum of six art shows per year. Some of the artists are teachers and periodically offer classes in drawing, pen and ink, jewelry making, digital photography, sculpture and painting. Harrison County Arts also has a gift shop within the gallery for special one of a kind gifts. You can find jewelry, pottery, small paintings, cards, photos wood and leather-work.
