About the Event
As part of the American Express Small Business Saturday Shop Fishers event, the Fishers Arts Council will again open The Art Gallery at City Hall from noon to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 30th.
At the Gallery you can enjoy the art, most of which is for sale, and you can shop for holiday gifts - all hand-made by local artists and artisans. There will be at least 15 local artists and artisans demonstrating, displaying, and selling their work. Additionally, a hands-on interactive art activity will be available (free of charge) to create your own unique piece of art to take home or give as a gift*. This project is made possible by the Indiana Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
PLUS - 2019 marks the 550th birth anniversary of the Sikh religion's founder, Guru Nanak. This anniversary will be celebrated with an educational exhibit plus Punjabi Culture folk dancing in the City Hall auditorium. We are proud to share this culturally enriching experience with our community for this special anniversary. Come learn about your neighbors in Fishers!
Avoid the malls and the crowds! Make this a holiday to remember as you support and learn from your local Fishers Artists and Artisans. Plus we offer free gift wrapping.
*Create Your Own Art: this interactive art session will be open to 10 participants at a time. Each session starts on the hour and will last roughly 45 minutes. There is no cost to participate. Children are welcome with the assistance of an adult. Sessions are filled on a first come, first serve basis.
All of our artists will have a typed description of their medium and what they are demonstrating - in case you want to keep notes or for those who cannot hear. We will also have tactile experiences for those who want to touch or have visual impairments.
If you'd like to request an audio interpreter, please reach out to us via facebook or email so that we can make that happen for you! (Deadline for interpretation request is 11/20/19.) Email us at FishersArtsCouncil (at) gmail (dot) com
