Art Barn displaying ‘Century of Beauty: Works from Our Legacy Collection’ exhibit | Entertainment


The Art Barn School of Art in Porter County is displaying the new exhibition “Century of Beauty: Works from Our Legacy Collection.”

The Art Barn at 695 N 400 E in rural Valparaiso is showcasing 40 oil and watercolor paintings by its founder Janet Sullivan, an acclaimed artist and arts educator.

“For the first time since the collection has been organized, many of these works are available for purchase,” Art Barn Executive Director Amy Davis Navardauskas said. “The retrospective exhibition serves as a culminating celebration of Sullivan’s 100th year of life.”

The “Century of Beauty: Works from Our Legacy Collection” show is on display in the Art Barn Gallery and lobby through July 30. A public reception will take place between 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The public can check out a selection of the more than 2,000 pieces Sullivan bequeathed to the Art Barn when she died in 2016. The nonprofit is keeping some of the pieces for its permanent collection and selling others to support its operations, which include art classes, the performing arts and other artistic programming on a 69-acre site.
