Suzanne Crouch, Treasurer Kelly Mitchell and the Indiana Arts Commission recently celebrated the 2019 Hoosier women artists at the Statehouse.“Being able to promote female artists throughout our state brings me such joy and I look forward to this ceremony every year,” Crouch said. “We had an astonishing amount of art submitted, and it was very difficult to decide which pieces to bring into the office. I want to continue to encourage women in Indiana to keep exercising their artistic passions and share them.”The Hoosier Women Artists competition was established in 2008 to celebrate the importance of the arts in Indiana’s communities and showcase the work of talented female artists throughout the state. The annual competition was announced in January, and today’s 39 honorees were selected out of more than 220 entries. The entries were judged by a panel of visual Indiana arts professionals and then selected for display by Crouch and Mitchell.“As always, the amount of talent and creativity Hoosier women possess and display is impressive,” Mitchell said. “I am honored to celebrate their skill by displaying these beautiful works of art in our office during the coming year.The 39 pieces of artwork will be displayed in the offices of: Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell, Secretary of State Connie Lawson, Auditor of State Tera Klutz, Chief Justice Loretta Rush and Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick, as well as in the office of First Lady Janet Holcomb in the governor’s residence.Photos from the event are online here.Below is a full list of winners.
