The Blue House
We want to help filmmakers and music makers to find success in the Indianapolis area by fostering an environment that supports artistic entrepreneurs. We are initially doing this by hosting film camps and music camps for young artists. On the final day of the camp we host a premiere night or listening party where our young artists get to sell their works and then split the profits among themselves. For arts to be viable, we believe it needs to be economically viable.
The art is where it starts for us. We are first creative. Creativity flows from the heart and is a form of deep expression. Though art is first a simple expression, we believe that as we hone our crafts we become more effective at reaching the world with what we hope to express. Though we certainly get better by spending time alone and practicing, we also get better by collaborating and learning with others who are also working to become better artists. We hope to help create the best music makers and film makers in the world, right here in the Indy area.
Though we support all of the arts, our focus is on the tech-enabled arts, specifically film and music. The world is consuming the arts through technology and we want to help our talented artists to use technology to propel their art and their message to our communities, our city, to our nation and our world.

Josh Haines, along with friends Sean Yager and Amy Applegate, founded the studio space shortly after their college careers. Originally, it was just a small section of the old warehouse that the three rented. After enough demand from other artists, they decided to rent out the rest, working on fixing it up along the way and establishing a gallery. At the end of 2017, The Oilwick officially became a nonprofit with a mission to serve the artists of Indianapolis and enhance the art scene as well.
Our primary objective is keeping a low cost studio space and maintaining regular exhibitions in our gallery. In 2018, we started a handful of programs like artist meetups, critiques, classes, and figure drawing as well.
The Warehouse is a multi-use entertainment and event venue in the heart of the Carmel Arts & Design District. We’re a great place to catch a concert, attend a costume party, host an office reception, or even get married. Our space features a beautiful stage with state of the art audio quality, as well as a gallery, bar service, and catering prep. The Warehouse is perfect for your next small-medium size event!
