Mellencamp paintings to exhibited in Seymour

The Southern Indiana Center for the Arts has announced its October exhibit, “Mellencamp: Three Generations of Art.” The exhibit will feature works from John, Marilyn and Speck Mellencamp.

Officials with the Jackson County Visitors Center say this exhibit is sponsored by JCB and will feature many newer works from John Mellencamp. Also featured will be more paintings from Marilyn, John’s mother, who painted at SICA as a part of the Wednesday group which still meets at the center. Rounding out this family show will be the work of Speck Mellencamp, who graduated from Rhode Island School of Design earlier this year.

“We are thrilled to have this talented family of artists featured here at SICA. John’s generosity has provided SICA with the opportunity to reach so many people with Art in this region. To have a show of this caliber at our center is another example of John’s passion for art in the area. We will be hosting a special members only reception from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 10,” said Executive Director Sean Hildreth. This event will be for SICA members only and reservations will be required in advance.

The exhibit opens October 2. The paintings will be on display through November 2.
