Ready to Move on From Some Artwork? Bryan Memorial Gallery Can Help

Anyone who collects, inherits or otherwise acquires art knows the slightly guilty feeling when you're just not that into it anymore. Maybe you never liked it in the first place. Or maybe you've moved and don't have enough wall or storage space.

Whatever the issue, Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville has come up with a way to divest, guilt-free: Put the work in an exhibit titled "Hidden Treasures" and hope it sells to another loving collector.

There's one caveat, though: The artist of said work must be deceased. Also, not just any old thing will do —  a panel of artists will jury the worth of each applicant. So forget about that paint-by-number collection you've been meaning to off-load.

The chosen works will be exhibited during November and December in the gallery's Middle Room. For more info, contact info@bryangallery.org or check out the prospectus at bryangallery.org.
