GBC Art Gallery
Since 1975 Greenfield Banking Company has provided a gallery for Central-Indiana artists to display their work. The gallery was initially located in the bank’s Main Office in downtown Greenfield, IN. In 1999 it was moved to the bank’s new Main Office and is currently located in the second floor lobby at 1920 N State St, Greenfield, IN.
Many artists, young and old have displayed artwork over the years. Their creations include watercolor, oil and acrylic paintings, photographs, textile art, photo essays, pencil drawings and pastels to name a few. Press releases and photographs are distributed to local media to promote each artists show and a large sign at the bank’s entrance directs visitors upstairs to the gallery.
The Art Gallery benefits not only the artists but also the community by making the visual arts more accessible to the local residents. The bank has no commission in the sale of artwork. The gallery is another way Greenfield Banking Company makes a positive contribution to the quality of life in our community.Connie Nobbe’s artwork will be on display in Greenfield Banking Company’s Main Office Art Gallery during May and June, 2015.
Born and raised in Greensburg, Indiana, Connie was first inspired artistically by her mother, who would paint in oils on canvas many afternoons in the kitchen. Connie went on to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design from Ball State University in 1987. After one year working as a production artist for a large sportswear silkscreening corporation, and four years working as a designer/illustrator for a fine papers company, significant life events inspired Connie to venture into a career in nursing. However, she never abandoned her artistic endeavors.
Connie has continued to pursue excellence in draftsmanship through classes, workshops, art competitions, conventions, and open studios. She has taken classes at the Indianapolis Art Center and workshops with artists Qiang Huang, Carol Marine and Mark Boedges. Connections in both the art world and the medical world have led to portrait commissions for clients such as Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum, physicians, fellow nurses and friends.
Her focus is now still life and landscape in oils, in a traditional, representational style. Past work consists of graphite and colored pencil drawings, a few which have won local, regional, and national awards. Connie now resides in Brownsburg, Indiana. Her work is on display at the Art on the Square Gallery in Greensburg, Indiana.
