April 19 through the 22, the Indiana plein air painters held The First Brush of Spring in New Harmony, Indiana. Several of the Union City Plein Air Painters were in attendance including, Caryn Moore, Philip Erbaugh, Edna Hawkins, Selena Burk, Linda DeHaven and Carol Strock Wasson. The association encourages the education of Indiana plein air painters and their supporters as well as the reawakening of an appreciation for Indiana landscape painting based on its rich history.
Strock Wasson received an award for Field 2 Finish at the 19th Annual First Brush of Spring this year.
This has already been an exciting year for art in Union City. Strock Wasson recently purchased a building located on North Columbia St., and moved her gallery studio to a spacious building.
Jamie Matchett, a Union City Community High School graduate has also purchased a building in downtown Union City and will be opening the Artisan Loop in the very near future. This will offer crafting space, custom painting and artisan workshops. More about this soon to open business in the near future. The facility is located at 336 W. Oak St.
