“I am very happy that in the three years since we opened Artists on the Square in Noblesville,” said director Trish Morris-Butcher, “the gallery has added custom framing, classes in painting, pottery and polymer clay and now, the new boutique.”
Opening in conjunction with an anniversary celebration April 13, the boutique – located on the second floor of the gallery – will feature more craft-style artwork, continuing the tradition of offering unique artwork. The expansion also allows many new artists to join the original co-op.
“The consigned items found upstairs in the boutique will be pieces that extend beyond traditional art, but that still have ‘the artist’s touch,’” said artist Wend Boomhower. “More than 16 artists have already consigned works for the boutique with offerings that include home accents, garden items, wearable art, furniture, musical selections and even more ‘masculine’ pieces.”
“I am approached constantly by artists whose work, while unique and artistic, doesn’t fit into what we want to display in the gallery,” Morris-Butcher said. “Many of the gallery artists wanted to expand into other mediums and styles of artwork. The new boutique gives them that opportunity.”
The Artists on the Square anniversary and boutique opening takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. April 13 at 853 Conner St. The event includes music, food and fabulous art.For additional information, visit www.artistsonthesquare.com.
