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.
