Mary Morgan, director of Gallery Forty-Two, and Kevin James Wilson, artist and current president of the Indiana Artist Club, joined us Wednesday on “Life.Style.Live!” to share what you can expect from this exhibition which is open from May 3 to June 6. Here are more of them:
The Forty-Two Gallery recently changed hands after being closed for a few years post-Covid. Bill Kessler, a local businessman (and 2X Olympian) is the current owner.
With its European-style design, over 3000 square feet of private event and gallery space, this stunning art gallery is unlike any other in the area. We are dedicated to local artists of all kinds and committed to being part of a thriving and cultural downtown.
The Forty-Two Gallery is located at 42 E. Washington Street and is inside the oldest commercial building in Indianapolis – dating back to the early 1830s.
We represent internationally renowned artists such as Salvador Dali, Fredrick Hart, ML Snowden, Boban, N. Tuan, Bill Mack and many more. Additionally, Gallery Forty-Two is committed to supporting local and regional artists with solo and group exhibitions throughout the year.
Future exhibitions include an exhibition with the Stutz Artists Association in July, a solo exhibition with local artist Taylor Walker in September, and a solo exhibition with local 3D artists and Art of Speed participant Will Woodrow.
Be sure to visit every 2nd Friday for a monthly open house! We have chosen to hold our open days on the 2nd Friday so that customers can enjoy other galleries and artists on the 1st Friday and Gallery Forty-Two on the 2nd Friday!
