One of my favorite things about blogging for Visit Hendricks County is learning about unique places to visit. This was once again true this week when I followed the Rural Routes to Main Street Cultural Trail to an art gallery and studio on the south side of Martinsville, Indiana. Ateliers - 2655 Burton Lane - Martinsville, Indiana As I drove down a road just east of Ind. 37, I came upon a green barn with the name Atelier on the front. When I entered, the first thing I noticed was beautiful artwork lining the walls. Jewelry by Sally Hedges When you visit Ateliers, you can shop for watercolors and jewelry made by the gallery’s owner Sally Hedges to photographs from Bobbie Sachs and art from a visiting artist. While you are there, you may see works in progress by one of Sally’s students. The day I visited, I was able to watch a student working on a landscape painting. Sally offers classes on Thursdays and Fridays and offers group workshops in combination with wine tastings by appointment. One of Sally's students working on painting. In addition to owning Ateliers, Sally loves to do murals. In fact, she is known in Martinsville for creating a mural at a local shopping center. This summer, she plans to create a mural on the side of the barn where Ateliers is located. Ateliers is one of the new locations on the Rural Routes to Main Street’s Second Saturdays. During the second Saturday of each month including this Saturday, April 13, you can enjoy additional historical and cultural sites featuring special activities.
