There are so many talented people occupying this planet. On a recent Friday I was able to sit down with 3.
Debra Fadely-Raber, Laura LaForge and Jodie Bailey represent just a few of the contributors to the Stutz Artists Open House April 27th and 28th in downtown Indianapolis.
Each of these women has a specialty. Debra happens to be a photographer who likes to shoot many different things. She is married to photographer Kevin Raber and they had the most unusual wedding, surrounded by penguins in Antartica!
Jodie is a visual artist who mainly works as a sculptor and hat maker. We are not talking your boring fedora. No, her creations are definitely works of art. Often times she uses unusual items like pencils or pages from a journal to craft a chapeau! (chapeau=hat in french) and Laura is an amazing painter.
Each of these women talk about the importance of art and art education, how they got started, how you can become a collector (all budgets) and of course the event.
The 25th Anniversary Stutz Artists Open House will be held Friday April 27th and Saturday April 28th with a VIP event on Thursday April 26th. The Stutz Business and Arts Center is located at 212 West 10th Street on the full city block between 10th and 11th Streets, between Capitol and Senate in downtown Indianapolis Indiana.
The two-day event celebrates the 25th year the Stutz artists have welcomed guests to their studios where they work all year long. The artists and building will be decked out in silver to celebrate the anniversary. Each artist is creating a work of art inspired by silver to be featured in their studio.
Artists will offer paintings, photography, furniture, sculpture, jewelry and more for purchase.
Tickets may be purchased and information found at:
