Alan Larkin took home Best of Show honors at the 91st Annual Exhibition at the Hoosier Salon. Discover what other artists are featured in the show.
Created in 1925, the Hoosier Salon was established to showcase the many talented artists Indiana had to offer. In addition, the institution sought to encourage artists, to help develop their profiles and skills, and to furnish a profitable market that would ignite the amateur and support the professional. Ninety-one years later, the Hoosier Salon is still realizing those goals, and its annual exhibition features countless beautiful artworks juried by Qiang Huang and Randall Sexton.
