When: Sept. 5-26 2014
The Stutz will kick off a big month for the violin in Indy — from the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis (Sept. 5-21) to the Violin Society of America Conference (Sept. 16-21) — with a showcase of large-format photographs by Todd Matus documenting his attempt to establish a violin atelier in Bulgaria in 1994. Matus started working on violins in Bulgaria in 1988 as a summer job while teaching photography at Herron. He says he “developed a varnishing method that really got sales moving” before made it his full-time gig. Also on display: master violins by Indiana makers presented by Sofia Violins.
