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 artist’s 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 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.
Artwork by Tim Lewis
Tim Lewis’ artwork will be on display in Greenfield Banking Company’s Art Gallery during January through March, 2019.
Tim was raised in Spencer, Indiana and attended Purdue University, obtaining an Associate Degree in Industrial Illustration. After working in a sign company, drawing maps and doing product design, he spent 38 years managing plastic injection molding plants producing automotive and medical products. Over the course of his manufacturing career he has lived in Indiana, Wisconsin, Kentucky and Nebraska and has traveled all over the U.S. and to several foreign countries. Today he lives in Shelbyville, Indiana.
Upon his retirement in 2014, he was enticed back into creating artwork through the gift of watercolor paints and supplies from his children. After a few lessons, he was back up and running.
Today Tim works primarily in watercolor but does some work in pencil, pen and ink, pastel and colored pencils. His work is usually very detailed as a result of his technical illustration background. Subject matter includes interesting landmarks, landscapes, and architectural details from Indiana as well as other states and Sicily.
Tim belongs to the Shelby Art Guild Association, Southside Art League, Watercolor Society of Indiana and a board member of the Shelby Arts Alliance. His artwork can be seen regularly at the Shelby Art Guild Association Gallery in Shelbyville and the Southside Art League Gallery in Greenwood, the Dragonfly Gallery in Spencer, IN as well as in various art shows in the Shelbyville, Indiana area.
