INDIANAPOLIS – Two Dearborn County women have been recognized for their artistic ability.

Earlier this month, Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch, Treasurer Kelly Mitchell and the Indiana Arts Commission hosted a reception to celebrate the 2022 Hoosier Women Artists exhibition at the Statehouse.

In total, 44 honorees were selected out of more than 200 entries, including Virginia Kramer, of Dillsboro, and Cynthia Mulvaney, of Greendale.

Kramer's artwork features the USS LST 325 Morning Docking, while Mulvaney created a piece highlighting The Speakman House: The Grand Lady.

The 44 pieces of artwork will be displayed in the following offices:

  • Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch;
  • Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell;
  • Secretary of State Holli Sullivan;
  • Auditor of State Tera Klutz;
  • Chief Justice Loretta Rush;
  • Secretary of Education Katie Jenner; and
  • Governor's Residence in honor of the First Lady.

 “It brings me joy to see the return of the Hoosier Women Artist exhibition,” Crouch said. “We received so many great submissions this year and numerous pieces are beyond incredible. I look forward to displaying these in my office throughout the next year. Our state is blessed with talented Hoosier women and I want them all to continue to share their artistic talents with others."

The Hoosier Women Artists program was established in 2008 to celebrate the importance of the arts in Indiana’s communities and showcase the work of talented female artists throughout the state.
