Hoosier Salon, the 89-year-old organization devoted to "inspiring Indiana artists" and furnishing them with "an outlet and profitable market," is moving its Broad Ripple gallery to Carmel.
NUVO confirmed this morning that the nonprofit signed a five-year lease yesterday with the Carmel Arts & Design District. The relocated gallery will open May 1 at 22 N. Range Line Road. It will become the first nonprofit gallery in the district.
Hoosier Salon closed its Wabash gallery, located at the Charley Creek Inn, on March 30 to make room for the hotel's catering operation. "We hope to reopen in Wabash if we can find a new location," reports the nonprofit's website.
That leaves Hoosier Salon with two permanent galleries: the soon-to-open Carmel location and a New Harmony location. The organization also hosts an annual exhibit, slated to open June 25 at the Indiana History Center.
