Encore/Sotheby's Visiting Artist Series
We love partnering with other organizations who value and support local artists, so when The National Bank of Indianapolis suggested we partner with Encore/Sotheby's International Realty and their Visiting Artist Series, we didn't hesitate to sign on!
The Visiting Artist Series was established in 2010 shortly after the opening of their Indianapolis office. Mark Zukerman, the company's Founding Principal soon realized that their office could be a great place to showcase art. The National Bank of Indianapolis came on as a sponsor in 2012, providing new avenues to grow the series and expose more guests to the series' featured artists.
Encore/Sotheby's considers it an important part of their mission to promote Indy art and culture, and in keeping with that goal, they show exclusively local art. Director of Marketing, Kate Rossman tells us that in the beginning, they sought out artists, but as the series has become more established, artists now frequently seek them out. Work is selected by committee, including members of Encore/Sotheby's and the National Bank of Indianapolis staff.
On Thursday, April 28, the 12th Visiting Artist event will feature work by Kristin Divers, and the HCA's own Justin Vining, and Kyle Ragsdale. The reception, which takes place from 5:30 to 7:30pm, is open to the public but if you'd like to attend, you should RSVP here. Encore/Sotheby's is located at 9510 N. Meridian Street, Suite 200. Hope to see you there! And, be on the lookout for future artistic collaborations with the Harrison Center and Encore/Sotheby's.
