A shopping destination on the historic Hendricks County Courthouse Square is celebrating 10 years in business this month with deals, discounts and fun events.
Gallery on the Square, a one-of-a-kind, co-op art gallery, specializes in just about every art medium including paintings, pastels, photography, jewelry, wood, glass, ceramics, fabric and sculptures. The gallery, which is located on the east side of the square, exhibits the work of about 20 local, award-winning artisans.
But this gallery doesn't just display and sell artwork to the public. Some of the artists also offer classes and workshops, plus a fun Paint ‘n Sip event twice a month.
To celebrate 10 years, the artists decided to paint old chairs for what they are calling their Chair Affair. Each of the artists found old chairs and reinvented them.
One boasts a Stephen King theme in what can best be described as eerie. Another artist transformed a child’s chair into the shape of a frog, with a book she illustrated attached to it. Other creations include turtles and even a hairbrush.
All of the Gallery artists are creating a chair, so there will be many to see, and many to place a bid on, as the silent auction will run through the entire month of October or you can choose the buy now option, if you see a chair you must have.
The Chair Affair began Oct. 1, and runs through Oct. 31. You can stop anytime during store hours to see all the chairs and bid.
But the celebration doesn't stop there.
Deals & Discounts
The Gallery will have everything in the store discounted 10% during the entire month of October. This would be a great way to get an early start on your Christmas shopping as I have found many gifts over the years for my loved ones there.
But it even gets better. On Oct. 10, the discount doubles to 20% off in the entire gallery, but just for that day only. Refreshments also will be served that day and special store hours will keep the gallery open until 8:30 p.m.
What a great way to see what the gallery has to offer. Make sure to stop by, see the chairs, place a bid and look around for deals on more gifts.
