The Stutz Artists Association Presents The Holiday Exhibition, 11/20
The Stutz Artists Association kicks off the Indianapolis holiday season with the annual Holiday Exhibition on Friday, November 20. Visitors can view the works of approximately 40 artists while mingling, enjoying light refreshments and listening to music - all in one room at the historic Stutz building.
Attendees to the event held on the Friday before Thanksgiving also can get a creative start on holiday shopping, with gift possibilities ranging from paintings, metal sculpture and wearable art to jewelry, cards and custom portraits. During the popular event, about 40 artists with studios in the historic Stutz building will display their work in a single gallery from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
In addition, small (6-inch-by-8-inch) original, one-of-a-kind paintings by many of the artists will be available for $100 each as a fundraiser for Brooke's Place (www.brookesplace.org), a nonprofit organization providing grief and loss support groups and counseling for children and their families. Stutz artists are contributing 50 percent of the proceeds from their work for this effort.
One of the largest associations of working artists in Indiana, the Stutz Artists Association exists to encourage its member artists and to promote their work. The association operates STUTZARTSPACE, a nonprofit gallery and classroom complex on the first floor of the Stutz. Classes pair professional artists with students at a wide range of skill levels. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays, or by appointment. It will be open Nov. 20 with the Site/Insight group exhibition inspired by this year's Spirit and Place theme, Inspired Places. The show offers viewers a first-hand view of the artists' inspired places, which include gardens, farms, art studios, abandoned spaces, urban settings and more. More information is available on www.stutzartists.com.
Admission to this event is free.
