About Donna Shortt

Fine Art Paintings filled with light and color
Donna Shortt is a life-long Indiana resident and skilled in the use of oils and pastels. She enjoys painting landscapes from life with other painters. She also enjoys painting from light-filled still life sets in her studio or with another group that meets weekly.
Recent accomplishments include a Best of Show in the fine arts professional division at the Indiana State Fair in 2007. In 2011 she received a Best of Show in the Greenfield Will Vawter Show and also in the Madison Art Club Member Show. She was also honored to be part of a pastel exhibit at the Richmond Indiana Art Museum in 2008 and held a solo exhibit at the Johnson County Museum of History, Franklin Indiana, in 2011. Two purchase awards and a merit award in Richmond, Indiana topped off 2013 and several of her plein air paintings were included in the 2013 book “Painting Indiana III: Dignity of Place”. In 2014 one of her pastels received an “Outstanding Pastel” award from the Hoosier Salon Annual Exhibit.

Artists Statement: My Inspiration to paint starts with the light at early morning or late afternoon and I would be content to spend most of my time capturing it. It is a 50/50 relationship with both the oil and pastel mediums now as I love both equally. I consider each painting not a destination but a journey, always looking forward to working on the next blank surface.

Brown County Art Guild

48 South Van Buren Street PO Box 324 Nashville IN 47448 812 988 6185With over 50 contemporary artist members exhibiting some of the very finest artwork in the Midwest, the Brown County Art Guild proudly features a rotation of member artist exhibits monthly, upstairs in the Loft Gallery. Artist receptions are held during Village Art Walks on Second Saturdays (5-8 pm). The Guild also conducts tours, workshops and artist demonstrations throughout the calendar year. The Guild takes pride in maintaining the Marie Goth Estate Collection and is committed to its mission: to exhibit and preserve works of art from the Marie Goth Collection; to exhibit works of art created by past and present guild artist members; and to cultivate fine art appreciation and education. "Where as the Brown County Art Gallery Association and the Brown County Art Guild, Inc. have contributed much to preserving the heritage of Brown County as a center for art and artists. Therefore, let it be resolved by the General Assembly of the State of Indiana (section 1): We recognize the importance of Brown County as an historic and current center of art in Indiana and that we especially salute those artists of today whose work reflects the beauty and charm of Brown County and its people." - Indiana State House Resolution #10, 1985
