Two Nobbes show artworks

Art on the Square Gallery, on the north side of Greensburg’s courthouse square, is pleased to present a show during October by two Greensburg native sisters-in-law – paintings by Connie Hargitt Nobbe and metal sculptures by Susie Nobbe, reports owner Lynda Smith.

Connie Hargitt Nobbe, the daughter of Jim Hargitt and Beverly Hargitt, was first inspired artistically by her mother, who would paint in oils on canvas many afternoons in the kitchen. The 1984 Greensburg Community High School graduate, with encouragement from art teacher Judith Richey, went on to study at Ball State University, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design in 1987. After working in the graphic arts field for a few years, she ventured into a career in nursing, but never abandoned her artistic endeavors. She now lives in Brownsburg with husband Jeff, from the Batesville area, and daughter Alyssa.

“Connie’s oil paintings, watercolors and colored pencil drawings reflect her study of still life, plein air landscapes and portraiture. Working in a representational style, she not only celebrates the beauty of the subject at hand, but the joy of laying down juicy paint and color,” Smith says.

Susie Nobbe is the daughter of Joan and the late Harold Nobbe. The 1994 Immaculate Conception Academy, Oldenburg, graduate was always talented at drawing, but her focus in recent years has been metal sculptures.

The gallery owner points out, “Welded together, varnished and often including other materials such as glass or tile, these old metal scraps are transformed into one-of-a-kind functional furniture and decorative pieces. Each piece is truly unique.”

The exhibit will be on display for the entire month during regular gallery hours, Tuesday-Friday from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. For more information, persons may visit www.artonthesquaregallery.com.
