Need a New Studio?

Are you in need of a huge studio space and have some land? If so you may be interested in the following.

The Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana has a 1878 English Style Barn available for sale.

To save a landmark barn in Indianapolis, Historic Landmarks Foundation first had to take it apart. A vestige of Marion County's agricultural past, the barn's location at the intersection of 16th Street and the White River placed it directly in the path of development. Workers dismantled the barn timber by timber, carefully numbering the parts before transporting them to storage. Historic Landmarks offers the structure for sale to a buyer who will re-erect the barn in Indiana. For more information click [here].

Art Opening: The Alchemy of Space

Opening Reception: Friday, March 6, 2009

(Enter from 10th St. via Bearcat Alley)
Indianapolis, IN 46202
When: 5 - 9:00 pm
Cost: Free

Check out Artist Members Kate Oberreich and Ginny Taylor Rosner at this opening.

In the show, the three female artists artistically explore space in the context of the chaos they experience from sharing creative space in Studio B240.

Myers’ prints and watercolors focus on spiritual and internal space, as expressed through nature and natural forms. Oberreich’s mixed media works and collages explore relationships and conversation using surface and text, and Taylor Rosner photographically turns her vision to abandoned urban spaces and the silent stories inherent in the emptiness.

The exhibition opens at noon March 6 with a reception from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., in conjunction with the Indianapolis Downtown Artists & Dealers Association’s (IDADA) monthly First Friday gallery tour.

The show runs through March 27. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays or by appointment. Stutz Art Space, a nonprofit visual art center that opened in January 2008, is on the first floor of the Stutz Business Center.

Exhibition open Monday through Friday 11 am - 2 pm or by appointment through March 27, 2009.
