Artists announced for open house


About 70 artists, six of them from Hamilton County, will open their studios to visitors during the two-day, 20th annual Raymond James Stutz Artists Open House Friday and Saturday.

Wendy Franklin and Laura LaForge, both of Carmel, Katie Clayton of Noblesville, and Mallory Marty, Bruce Moore and Sally Moore all of Fishers will participate in the event, which is designed to give patrons the chance to see artwork in the setting where it’s created.

“The open house has become one of the city’s rites of spring,” said Tom Potter, a photographer and co-chair of the 2013 open house. “This year, there’s an even more diverse mix of studios and art to see than ever.”

Artwork ranges from paintings, drawings and photography, to sculpture, jewelry and furniture. The event also offers a rare chance to see vintage cars on display in the historic Stutz car factory.

The event is from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. Friday and 2 to 7 p.m. Saturday at 212 W. 10th St., Indianapolis. Advance tickets can be purchased for $10 at Old National Bank branches and the Stutz Business Office, or for $14 at Eventbrite or $15 at the gate. Children 12 and under are free.
