Hopefully you have a full Labor Day weekend planned. But, if you're looking ahead, there is a lot of great art-based events on the calendar for the weekend of Sept. 10-12 that you might want to consider.
The Penrod Art Fair is a fantastic event, with hundreds of booths from artists all over the country. It is a one day art fair, on Saturday, September 11th. And, it is on the grounds of the lovely Indianapolis Art Museum. Some locals that will have booths that I hope continue to get more attention there are Gayla Hodson and Ben Johnson.
The night before, on Friday, Sept. 10th, the Indianapolis Art Center in Broad Ripple has their annual open house. Currently on exhibit, you can see works from the IAC's instructors and winners from the student division in the main gallery (check out Lisa VanMeter's monoprints and woodblock prints). I especially appreciate Matt Kenyon's glass (scroll to find Matt and check out the slideshow) and Susan Hodgin's paintings (Gayla Hodson is also an IAC instructor). Yats and BRICS will both have booths at the open house!
This weekend, well you'll want to root for Purdue to hopefully spoil Brian Kelly's debut at Notre Dame.
