All are welcome to Satch Art Space and The Stokol Gallery at the Circle City Industrial Complex located near 10th and College Ave at 1125 Brookside Ave Indianapolis, IN 46202.

This juried show includes many forms of art – painting, mixed media, print, assemblage, cut paper, tattoos and jewelry. Some high brow, some low brow and some “uni-brow,” something to delight everyone!
Enjoy meeting and talking to the exhibition artists about how Frida Kahlo inspired their life and art. Learn about Frida Kahlo, a Mexican self-portrait Artist and icon, considered one of Mexico’s greatest artists. Most exhibited art is for sale priced from $45 to $1,200, if you need a bit of Frida in your home or office.
Live musical guests, Ezequiel Jiminez and Melba Reno, will share their musical talent with classical guitar playing Latin jazz and ambient music in The Stokol Gallery.
Local designer Katy Newton will share her Frida fashion talents modeled throughout the evening.
And opening night wouldn’t be a birthday party for Frida, who was born on July 6, 1907, without cupcakes, while supplies last…as the saying goes!
And, if you are busy on First Friday, come to the sneak peek on Collectors Night, Thursday, July 5th from 5-7pm, when hostess Julie “Satch” Kern announces the “Best of Show” and Teagen Development announces their “Purchase Award” at 6pm.
