About Indiana Wildlife Artists, Inc.

Indiana Wildlife Artists, Inc. (IWA) was established in northern Indiana in 1982. In 1992, IWA was granted its Non-Profit status.
Not long after its creation, it was determined that the northern location of the annual exhibit was extremly limiting to artists
in the southern parts of the State. It was decided to create three chapters, one each for the Northern, Central and Southern regions.
The annual exhibit then would rotate between the chapters, allowing artists more opportunities to exhibit their work.
In more recent years, it has been harder and harder to find venues that will accomodate our annual exhibit, so in 2017 the general
membership agreed to a central location in a venue that can accomodate us.

The Focus of IWA

The major focus of IWA is to promote the advancement of wildlife art within Indiana, and to provide wildlife artists an opportunity to meet, learn, share, teach and exhibit their artwork.
IWA encourages the recognition and understanding of wildlife among its members by offering special events sponsored by one of the Chapters at various wildlife facilities, parks and preserves around the State.
IWA also sponsors seminars and workshops on wildlife art and related topics for members and other groups upon request.
IWA underwrites one special major event every year: the Annual Exhibit.
Each year one of the Chapters is responsible for the Art Exhibit which has, in the past been presented within the boundaries of that Chapter. The North exhibited in Wabash at the Honeywell Center. The Central Chapter exhibited at Minnetrista in Muncie, and the South used Angel Mounds in Evansville, Indiana.
In 2008 IWA celebrated its 25th Annual Exhibit at the Honeywell Center, featuring 25 artists exhibiting 71 pieces of art.
In 2013 IWA celebrated its 30th Annual Exhibit exhibiting 99 pieces of art and 35 artists, including some from out of state with the same desire and interest for wildlife as IWA exhibits.
In 2016 the Northern Chapter requested that thier Exhibit be in Indianapolis with the help of members of the Central Chapter.
In 2017, at the Annual meeting it was the general consensus of the membership to keep the Annual Exhibit in a more centralized venue, and to create an Exhibit Committee to organize the exhibit rather than a chapter. For now that centralized venue is the Second Presbyterian Church of Indianapolis, 7700 N Meridian St. Indianapolis, IN 46260.
