Located in the historic Carnegie Center in downtown Rensselaer, a restored and renovated 1904 Carnegie Library, PAC maintains the Lilian Fendig Gallery, named for a British born artist who married Ralph Fendig, a Rensselaer pharmacist.They met in England during WW II and made their home in Rensselaer. Lilian Fendig continued to paint and achieved recognition for her work throughout Indiana and beyond. An archive of her painting records and many of her paintings, sketches and prints comprise the core of PAC's developing permanent collection.
In our gift shop in the Fendig Gallery, patrons can purchase Fendig note cards and prints and paintings as well as paintings, jewelry, ceramics, photographs, note cards, and other works by PAC member artists.
