Buying Art

It's been quite a summer! On Friday, July 10, we celebrated our third Anniversary with an art opening and a members party.

We also kicked off our Green Hand Campaign, an effort to draw more art patrons in to the Gallery.The goal of the campaign is to sell art and help sustain and grow the Artists Hand so that it can continue to be a hub of creative activity in our community.

Between now and Thanksgiving we would like to have 100 patrons committed to purchasing art for $550 or more. That may sound like a lot, so we want to make it easy.  You can pledge $50 per month for 11 months, and then you can choose $550 dollars worth of art. Begin to pledge today and you can do your Christmas shopping at the Gallery (see one of our baristas for details). If you make the pledge or purchase work out right, we will make you a Sustaining Member, with all of the benefits and perks given to our Charter Members.  That is you will have a Green Hand displayed in the Gallery with your name engraved, coffee drinks at a 10% discount, a 5% discount in the gallery, and invitations to special events. You can also use our regular layaway plan and pay 50% down and make the remaining payments over 3 months. Whichever way you choose, we want to extend the invitation for you to come out and look at the high quality work we have here at the Gallery, by artists who may even be your neighbors.

We also kicked off our own Artists Gallery website through Fine Art America. Here you will find the work of select artists, that is currently hanging in the gallery. Folks from all over the world can view the work of our artists and make purchases. We can ship work easily within the continental United States, and have shipped to further destinations as well. Just click over here, and see what's available.

We continue to strive to bring the Indiana Community a quality art experience. And to provide high quality art for purchase at a reasonable price. The Collector's Corner continues to be a favorite place for patrons to find a work of art by their favorite artist, at a price that is a little easier on the pocket book.

In addition to selling art the Gallery and Espresso bar has been host to several events, both public and private, this summer. We've hosted four showers, Eat, Drink Creates, and the filming of a commercial by a local film company.

Please feel free to contact the Gallery or Espresso Bar if you have any questions about events, the Green Hand campaign, or the purchase of art. Our baristas and gallery managers, Sandy & Sam, are always happy to help. Thank you for continuing to support this dream of an arts destination in Downtown Indiana. And we'll see you soon for a cup of coffee and a tour of local artwork.
