ARTISTS OF WAYNE COUNTY
Wait! - when you're doing your spring cleaning, save that old ratty painting from Grandma's attic...at least until you've had time to learn more about the "Artists of Wayne County".
Wayne County, Indiana produced a wealth of nationally recognized artists
during the last 150 years. Some of these artists are widely collected, while it
proves difficult to locate samples of other’s work. In an effort to educate both
local citizens and the art world as to the contributions of this talented group,
a web site has been created to
share information about these artists and images of some of their art.
The artists included on the web site, entitled “Artists of Wayne County”, include George Herbert Baker, Edgar Forkner, John Elwood Bundy, Edna Stubbs Cathell, Charles Conner, Maude Eggemeyer, William Eyden Sr., William Eyden Jr., Frank Girardin, Marcus Mote, William Alden Mote, Overbeck Sisters, John Seaford, and Gaar Williams.
A short biography of each artist, researched and written by Richmond Art Museum Executive Director, Shaun Dingwerth, is included, along with several samples of each artist’s work.
The site includes images from the collections of the Cambridge City Library, Earlham College, Morrisson-Reeves Library, Quaker Hill Conference Center, Richmond Art Museum, Richmond Community Schools and the Wayne County Historical Museum.
Creation of this site was due to the generosity of a grant from the Wayne
County Foundation along with the collaboration of Morrisson-Reeves Library,
Earlham College, Richmond Art Museum, Wayne County Historical
Museum and WayNet.org. Our vision is that this will be the beginning of a comprehensive “Encyclopedia” featuring the history of Wayne County. The site is hosted by WayNet.org.
