It’s just for a day, but artist Nancy Noel will return to the Sanctuary on Dec. 12. The gallery will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. selling artwork that didn’t fit in her new studio.
In March Noel moved her 75 North Main Street gallery from Zionsville to Aspen, Colo. Unable to fit everything into the new gallery, some merchandise was left behind.
“We opened two days in October,” office manager Kathy Pierle said. “We had a wonderful response those two days.”
Noel decided to give customers a chance to shop for the holidays after listening to their feedback in October, grateful that she had reopened briefly and hoping she would consider doing it again in the future.
“Everyone said ‘We’re so thankful you did this, would you do it again?’” Pierle said.
Everything in the gallery will be marked 25 to 50 percent off, which includes both framed and unframed pieces. Noel will be at the gallery throughout the day.
Noel returns often to Zionsville, maintaining the home and farm she has had for 40 years.
The 11,000-square-foot building, known as The Sanctuary, is still on the market with an asking price of $1.7 million. The building is thought to have been built around 1854 as a church and has had previous lives as furniture and antique stores.
