Last night I First Friday’d with my favorite jeweler, Sara B. Here’s some of what we saw and where we saw it…
The night began with Bodies of Work: The Figurative Work of Travis S. Little at the StutzArtSpace Gallery where I was finishing up some last minute prep for the opening. This was the Gallery’s first ever solo show (previously group shows only) and what a success! I hear rumors of some sales already.
Next up was Bound, a book arts show at the Harrison Center for the Arts and a chance to scope out their new City Gallery where I’ve submitted artwork to be considered.
It’s a map of Dublin?!
This was just because (outside the Harrison Center).
As for the rest of the night, the camera started to freak out so that’s it on pictures. We also saw Transcendence at Gallery 924 at the Arts Council of Indianapolis, Hungry Weeds (yay, Emily!) at Nancy Lee Designs and Photos Unfolding at Wug Laku’s Studio & Garage.
Never seem to make it down to Fountain Square…there’s just too much going on for one night!
In case you missed my show at Wug Laku’s Studio and Garage in February and March of this year (it’s okay, I understand. You were busy.), you can catch much of the artwork again this weekend at the Harrison Center for the Arts (16th and Delaware St.). It’s on view outside of the Harrison Gallery on the main level.
Also this weekend at the Harrison Center is the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange, a contemporary craft fair celebrating handmade goods. I think you should visit with all the vendors, but especially my friends Kate Loar (Oh, Come On), Sara Bienecki (Sara B. Jewelry and Metalsmithing) and Heather Givans (Crimson Tate Modern Quilter). Cuz they’re way cool people.
I, of course, must also recommend taking a spin through the Talbot Street Art Fair, just around the corner from the Harrison Center, where you can check out the Hole Pottery (my mom) booth. It’s going to be a very arty weekend.
I know the Stutz Open House is coming up (April 23-24), but how about a quick look around my studio in the meantime…actually, this is better. For the Open House we all clean up our act and our studios. They often look nothing like they do when we’re working in them the rest of the year.
You can also check out a few of the pieces I’m preparing for my show, Undertow, opening Friday, February 5 (6-10pm) at wUG LAKU’S STUDIO & gARAGE.
As always, more to come. The studio space is ever evolving.
