STATEHOUSE (March 22, 2018) — Artwork by a local artist will soon be on display at the Statehouse, according to State Rep. Donna Schaibley (R-Carmel).

Schaibley said Ronda Fischer was selected to have her artwork decorate the Statehouse as part of Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch’s Hoosier Women Artists 2018 initiative.

“Art is a great way to bring a community together,” Schaibley said. “Ronda is just one example of the amazing talent to be found in our area and her work will bring a piece of Boone County to the Statehouse where it will be showcased for the next year.”

Fischer, from Lebanon, will have her work, titled “Buddy in a Barrow,” displayed in the office of Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell.

Fischer and others were honored at a Statehouse ceremony on Wednesday, which recognized the talents of women throughout Indiana.

In celebration of Women’s History Month in March, the Hoosier Women Artists initiative is an annual contest recognizing the importance of the arts by showcasing drawings, paintings and photography.
