Historic day for local arts fair



Indianapolis, Indiana – As the Penrod Arts Fair returned for its 56th year, it was a historic day for regional artists!

With 350 artists traveling to central Indiana to exhibit their works, this year’s fair was the largest in history. These artists came from more than 25 different states.

There was something for everybody, including oil paintings, pottery, crafts, and more!

The art fair will continue to affect Indianapolis long after the day is over. The fair’s organizers claimed that all earnings directly benefit our neighborhood communities.

“For example, the Boys and Girls Club of Central Indiana, and think about programs that will help with literacy or art in schools, child therapy programs, children’s hospitals… We are trying to find a way to bring art into people’s lives and enrich them,” said Bryan Strawbridge, the fair chairman.

Next September, Newfields will host the Penrod Arts Fair once more.
