Do you like this story?
I want to thank Paul Klein for making it to Indy Thursday and inspiring some thoughts and actions among local artists and dealers. Early this morning, a number of local gallery owners, curators and such met with Paul at Dean Johnson Gallery for a casual discussion, further investigating some of the ideas brought up during his talk the night before. The essence of what this talk was about, or at least how I interpreted everyones thoughts and ideas, was that we were all looking for ways in which to grow the current local gallery and arts awareness, to educate the public about what the arts has to offer the community and inspire a more vibrant and active collector base. While we did not get into details on any of these topics we all had the opportunity to throw out some thoughts, ideas and concerns. One of the themes of Pauls advice was to think creatively, to think outside the box. Take chances. See what works and what doesn't.
