A myriad of artists make up the Stutz Artists Association. They all share a common love of and passion for art, but from there the similarities mostly end. Each artist has his or her own style, way of working and outlook on the world, creating a true community of art and artists, who dialogue about our larger Indianapolis art community. The work varies from traditional to contemporary. Some have advanced degrees in art, and others advance their art in degrees. Some teach classes and workshops, others mentor one on one.
Some artists in the Stutz Artists Association produce work that is accessible to a broad audience hoping to sell large amounts, others focus on creating art for their own sake, never putting a piece on the market. While many of the Stutz artists have artwork in the permanent collection of Indianapolis museums, Indianapolis schools and Indianapolis hospitals, others are regional and even national award winners.
The majority of these diverse artists share a home under one roof in Indianapolis. The building, in the heart of Indianapolis downtown, offers 400,000 square feet of gallery and living space, shared by these artists.
