If you’re in the vicinity or passing through northern Indiana this month, there are 30 good reasons to make a stop in the town of Goshen, Ind. The Northern Indiana Pastel Society (NIPS) Members Juried Exhibit, currently showing at the Sycamore Gallery, located in The Old Bag Factory in Goshen, features 30 pastel paintings to inspire and delight you. The show was juried by Brian Byrn, director of the Midwest Museum of American Art in Elkhart, Ind. The judge’s awards went to paintings by Ron Monsma and Deb Eiswald (shown below), as well as Susie Russell and Tom Tooley. Six Merit awards went to work by artists Linda Freel, Mary Meehan Firtl, Mary Michalak, Diane Overmyer, Stephen Verace and Mona Witt. You can stop by and see it Monday through Saturday, now through July 27.
