The Cole-Noble Art Gallery at Artistry
The gallery is located on the first floor of Artistry and features collections by local artists that will be rotated four times each year. Artistry hopes that the gallery’s emphasis on local art will help connect and beautify the community. “It is important for us to partner with the neighborhoods and communities where we are located,” explained Kim Hurd, Artistry’s Developer at Milhaus Development, “We want the community to see how the space has transformed into this beautiful community with a focus on the art."
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.
To achieve a true appreciation for the depth of the work of N.A. Noel, you must step inside The Sanctuary. It is a dramatic showcase for the talents of this world renowned artist. Compare, contrast, experience the art of N.A. Noel… gaze into the haunting eyes of Girl with Fool, reach a higher plane of understanding with The Contract and Secrets and Lies, and drink in the striking natural beauty of Glass Bowl, a tribute to the peonies so prevalent during a Midwestern springtime.
Also discover the original works that brought the work of Nancy Noel to the forefront of the American art world. Original Amish pieces like Once upon a Cat and Crow & The Butterfly draw the viewer into the simplistic beauty of this portrayal of Amish life. For many Noel collectors, the opportunity to see favorite paintings in person is a lifelong dream. But, as Destiny greets you upon arrival, and you move forward to see Promise, Angel with Harp, Grace, Angel of the Arts and many more, this dream becomes a reality.
The Sanctuary is a Victorian church originally built in the 1800's on Main Street in the quaint Indiana town of Zionsville. This unique historic landmark is home to the remarkable collection of artwork by renowned artist, Nancy Noel. The Sanctuary offers a retreat unlike any other and is a must-see destination in central Indiana for both Noel aficionados and those unfamiliar with her work.
Housing a museum shop, framing gallery and delightful luncheon café, The Sanctuary is perfect for a quick visit to escape from reality or for a leisurely day spent browsing the original artwork, discovering the quality of the many available giclees and prints, and relaxing over lunch or afternoon tea in our restaurant. Call ahead to schedule a tour or simply stop by to experience The Sanctuary.
