BATESVILLE – February 12, 2014  – Paige Dirksen, Executive Director of the Batesville Area Arts Council, changes out a piece of art on display in the “Josephine Raye Rogers Art Gallery” at Citizens Bank.  The Arts Council regularly displays the works of local artists in the art corridor of the bank’s Main Branch in downtown Batesville.  Most of the artwork is available for purchase.  Here, Ms. Dirksen hangs a watercolor entitled “Shack in Field,” which was produced by artist Ruby Schaaf.  The art corridor was dedicated last year for Mrs. Rogers, wife of the bank’s late Chairman Doyle R. Rogers, in recognition for her contributions to the Batesville area and to Citizens Bank.  The public is invited to visit the art corridor at any time.
