Three weeks before the 22nd annual Raymond James Stutz Artists Open House, art fans will have a chance to preview – and have a first shot at purchasing – the work of more than 50 Stutz artists at the free "First Peek" exhibition at the Raymond James Stutz Art Gallery on the first floor of the Stutz building.

At the exhibit, most of the artists will display one piece as a representation of the work they'll show in their studios during the April 24 and 25 Raymond James Stutz Artists Open House event. A wide range of media and styles of artwork will be on view. Checking out the “First Peek” exhibit is a great way to plot which studios to visit during the open house. 

An opening reception for the exhibit is set for 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. April 3, in conjunction with the Indianapolis Downtown Artists & Dealers Association's (IDADA) monthly First Friday gallery tour. Enjoy live music and entertainment during the opening reception.




The exibition is open through April 30, and the gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, or by appointment. The Raymond James Stutz Art Gallery will be open during the Raymond James Open House as well, but accessible to ticket holders only, during that time.
