Roy Boswell and Gary Chapman are the featured artists for the month of June at the Art On Main Gallery.

The two artists' works will be displayed throughout the entire month in the front gallery. The monthly event is sponsored by the Madison Art Club, which runs the gallery.

Boswell, who lives near Indianapolis, is a graduate of Purdue University and painter who works primarily with outdoors scenes. He also works from field studies in the studio and still life.

"He does a lot of different subject matters," said Teresa Waller, secretary for the Madison Art Club. "And he's quite prolific."

Chapman is a retired Madison art teacher who grew up in a family of carpenters. After a collaboration with Hanover furniture artisan, John York, Chapman purchased a lathe and began creating turned-wood bowls. He lives in Madison.

The ornate bowls in Chapman's collection can sometimes take an entire year to complete, Waller said.

"It's quite impressive to hear him talk about the whole process behind it," she said.

Each month, the Madison Art Club selects at least one member - it has about 90 members total - as the featured artist for the gallery. Both Chapman and Boswell have works exhibited in the gallery, but this is the first time either artist has been selected as the club's featured artist.

More information on Boswell can be found at his website

The Art on Main Gallery at 309 W. Main St. is open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. They are closed Wednesday.

"Paint the Bridge"

In addition to the featured artists, June also marks the submission deadline for the art club's "Paint the Bridge" project, which will be displayed throughout July.

To celebrate the opening of the bridge later this year, the club is calling for artists to submit works featuring the Madison-Milton bridge, past or present, by June 15.

The exhibits can be in any medium, including but not limited to photography, paintings, and sculptures. All 2-D work must be framed and ready to hang. Those with 3-D submissions should contact the gallery at (812) 265-2923 prior to delivery on June 15.

There is no entry fee and works will not be judged.
