The Jazz Kitchen
The Jazz Kitchen opened its doors in 1994 as Indy’s premier destination for jazz and beyond. Recognized as one of the “Top 100 Jazz Clubs in the World” by Downbeat Magazine, The Jazz Kitchen presents a wide variety of local, regional and international jazz artists in an intimate 140 seat supper club style venue. Past notable performers include Harry Connick Jr., Ray Brown, JJ Johnson, Jane Monheit, Maynard Ferguson, Billy Cobham, Diane Schuur, John Scofield, Soulive, James Moody, David “Fathead” Newman and Dee Dee Bridgewater. The Jazz Kitchen menu is NOLA meets Midwest cuisine. A touch of the “Big Easy” represented by Satchmo’s Etoufee, Not-So-Cajun Chicken, ‘po boys and Crescent City Crab Cakes complementing midwest fresh-from-the butcher steaks, chops and burgers. In February 2009, the corporate partnership of The Jazz Kitchen and the Indianapolis Jazz Foundation took over production of the Indy Jazz Fest, an annual festival held in September. www.thejazzkitchen.com
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.
