STATEHOUSE (March 22, 2018) — Artwork by two local artists will soon be on display at the Statehouse, according to State Rep. Dave Wolkins (R-Warsaw).
Wolkins said Stephanie McDairmant and Susan Ring were selected to have their artwork decorate the Statehouse as part of Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch’s Hoosier Women Artists 2018 initiative.
“Artists in our community are among the most talented in the state,” Wolkins said. “I would like to congratulate Stephanie and Susan on being recognized by the lieutenant governor. These amazing pieces of art will be shared with Statehouse visitors throughout the next year.”
McDairmant, from Warsaw, will have her work, titled “Energy,” displayed in the office of Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell.
Ring, from North Manchester, will have her work, titled “Looking Up,” displayed in the lieutenant governor’s office.
These artists 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.
Rep. Dave Wolkins (R-Warsaw) represents House District 18,
which includes Wabash and portions of Kosciusko, Miami and Grant counties.
