DAY 17- Picture Perfect

Alright ladies and gentlemen, I can’t stress enough how close to crunch time we are getting now. Jolly Old St. Nick is about to depart, his bags are packed and he’s ready to go. When he squeezes down the chimney on the 25th and gets busy stuffing stockings, you better have something to give or else Santa is going to have an extra passenger on his sleigh.

We want to keep your hard earned money as local as possible this season, so what better way to do so than supporting a local artist or two. Don’t know where to go to meet these artist? No problem, we have taken care of that for you already. Our Indianapolis art galleries page will tell you where to go and who to look for.

These are most but by no means all of the art galleries in Indy. If you are the adventuresome and would rather strike out on your own to find the perfect painting to hang by the chimney with care, might I suggest that you check out the cultural districts in Indianapolis. Your best bet would be Broad Ripple Village Mass Ave and Fountain Square in downtown Indianapolis.

From the newest artist on the block to the world famous painters that call Indianapolis home, you will find them all in our city’s galleries. If you want to peruse the work before you go shopping, visit our Indianapolis artists page and get yourself acclimated. Happy holidays and happy hunting. See you all tomorrow.
