Indiana Artisan is pleased and excited to announce that we will open a new store May 1, just in time for Mother's Day. It is at 20 Rangeline Road, only a few short steps north of Main in the Carmel Arts & Design District. It will bring back all the functional and decorative art, small-batch foods, and special events that you enjoyed when we were next to Joe’s Butcher Shop. And it will offer more!
We are so looking forward to welcoming you to the new store, we’ll offer a Welcome Back gift to all former customers that visit in the first month. Watch for details about it in the April newsletter.
The new space, which is currently the home of the Hoosier Salon, is in a meticulously restored building that we believe was built in the Roaring 20s. It will give us room to grow the amount of exceptional work made in Indiana.
A gallery within the store will feature a different solo artist each month. You’ll be able to meet each one during Meet Me On Main, the second Saturday gallery walks. Indiana Artisans will be invited to hold classes and special presentations in the store.As we did on Main Street, Indiana Artisan will take part in the wide range of special events in the Arts District. In addition to meeting the artists who have solo exhibits in gallery, we’ll bring back one of customers’ favorite programs during the gallery walks: artist demonstrations. On May 11, potter Steven Skinner from New Carlisle will be doing slabwork in the store.
In the near future, we will offer space in the store for nonprofits and community groups to hold small meetings or their own classes.
The store will be open 11:00-6:00 Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday; 11:00-8:30 Thursday-Saturday, with Monday hours by chance or appointment.
