Carmel artists win prizes in annual exhibition




Two Carmel artists – Mary Grace Corpus and Nancy Kruse – won honors in the 88th Annual Hoosier Salon Exhibition. The yearly juried competition promotes Hoosier artists and their art by identifying the best works by Indiana artists, showcasing them in the annual exhibition and making them available for sale.

Corpus won the prize for Best Up and Coming Artist Under 30 for her oil painting “Three Spaces.” This is Corpus’ first time being accepted into the Exhibition.

Kruse won the prize for Best Contemporary work for the oil painting “A Young Mr. Peabody in the Library.”

Two additional Carmel artists are among the 93 whose works were selected: J.D. Naraine for the oil painting “Silent Night” and the pastel piece “Young Dancer,” and April Willy for the oil painting “Expectation.”
