HISTORY AND MISSION
In the years leading up to the Arts Council’s move from Monument Circle to North Pennsylvania Street in 2010, a large number of small, independently owned galleries and alternative exhibition spaces began closing their doors due to the vicious economic downturn. The devastating impact on the local visual arts scene cannot be overstated. The six established galleries and some smaller spaces that shut down in this two to three year period all but paralyzed the visual arts community.
In direct response to these circumstances, the Arts Council committed to create a professional level gallery suitable for high level solo shows, curated group shows and exhibitions created and presented by partner organizations. The first task was communicating with current and past gallery owners as well as non-profit exhibition space providers and artists. After conversations, meetings, and discussions with leaders in the visual arts community, the Arts Council staff and board felt confident the goal of creating a professional gallery space to supplement the current offerings was solid and supported by that community.
Today, on a budget of less than $2,000 annually, Gallery 924 hosts ten exhibitions per year highlighting central Indiana contemporary artists in solo and curated group shows and is a member and participant in the Indianapolis Downtown Artists and Dealer’s Association First Friday Art Tour. In addition, ACI staff work to support the work and the careers of the artists exhibited in Gallery 924 long after the work comes down and the lights go off. Gallery 924 is an initiative to enhance the Indianapolis art scene and support the work and the careers of central Indiana professional artists.
Gallery 924 provides a professional exhibition space worthy of high-level curated solo and group shows. The end goal of the space is to push forward the careers of central Indiana mid-career and established artists, enabling them to build their professional resume and seek opportunities regionally and nationally. The space also seeks to give emerging and newly successful artists an opportunity to be a part of a professional group exhibition that will enable them to grow towards their first solo show.
A thriving gallery scene where all talented artists at every stage in their careers have the opportunity to be represented and show their work in a professional setting.
Two galleries in one – the lower level housing traditional figurative sculpture and the upper level housing sports and entertainment art.
Gallery Forty-Two is a European-inspired retail art gallery offering collectors classical pieces from masters of sculpture such as Salvador Dali, Frederick Hart, Boban Ilic, Tuan Nguyen and M.L.
