I miss Rusty! Now that News CafĂ© is closed I can’t pop in for a quick visit with Rusty. You can get a big Rusty Redenbacher fix at the Melody Inn at the Hip Hop Show. If you’re not familiar with hip hop – or even slightly wary, this will be a great show to see what it’s all about. Rusty is one of the best!

Primary Colours is hosting their eighth installment of its invitational holiday art exhibit. TOYS features art fashioned around the theme of toys, and invited artists are free to interpret the theme however they wish.

The exhibit will remain on display in the gallery for viewing and purchase through December 22 – perfect for holiday shopping for the art lovers on your list.

The following artists were invited to show: Mike Altman , Ryan Alvis, Justin Cooper, Bruce Dean, Nate Greuel, Blythe Hager, Kyle A. Herrington, Mamus, Carl B. Leck, Jeff Martin, Emma Overman, Jamie Pawlus, Aaron Scamihorn, Nathan Shinkle, Judie Sloan, Eric Smith, Holly Streekstra, Justin Trapp, Phil Velikan  and Pam Wishbow.

The artists keep 75% of the proceeds from the sale, the rest going to fund the good works of Primary Colours.

The opening coincides First Friday Art Tour. Parking is free on the street after 6pm, in the lot just south of the building, or in the Lucille Raines lot across the street.

This year, Primary Colours is teaming up with VSA Arts of Indiana and asks attendees to bring new or very gently used basic art supplies, such as acrylic, watercolor or tempera paints; colored pencils; erasers; paper; canvases; and brushes that volunteers will collect at the door. VSA will use donated supplies to provide arts activities to young patients and their families at Riley Hospital for Children and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital in addition to community arts classes around the state.
