Broad Ripple Gazette vol 9, no 7

Indiana Artisan Marketplace
Saturday, March 31 (10:00 – 6:00), Sunday, April 1 (10:00 – 5:00)
Expo Hall, Indiana State Fairgrounds
1202 E. 38TH Street
$10, under age 15- free 

Showcasing the creations of Indiana's best artists and artisans, the Indiana Artisan Marketplace returns for a second year at one of my favorite places, the Indiana State Fairgrounds. 

More than 100 artisans from Indiana and an additional 50+ artisans from Kentucky will showcase art and food selected as being among the best in Indiana and Kentucky by food and art jury panels created by Indiana Artisan and Kentucky Crafted.

The Marketplace features one-of-a-kind artwork and foods, including some of my favorites – Geoff Davis and his delightful carved birds, Teri Barnett and her colorful paintings, Erin Jones-Edds and her delicious Hoosier Mama products (I can’t wait to try her newest offering, margarita mix), and Elizabeth Garber and her Best Chocolate in Town truffles (a little trivia: she used to sell her truffles at CATH coffeehouse). 

You get to meet and purchase directly from the artisans. You will be able to watch them create artwork, cultivate relationships with your favorite artisans and celebrate exceptional talent and creativity.

If browsing among all of the delightful art is not enough, there will be Indiana musicians, live art and craft demonstrations, and food and drink tastings. In addition to browsing the booths, visitors again will enjoy Indiana music, live art and craft demonstration and food and drink tasting.

Pravada, Goldenboy, & Hotfox

Melody Inn
3826 N. Illinois
8:00, 21+, free 

Butler Scion has put everyone on the guest list for this show – that means it’s free! I’ve been a fan of the delightful band, Hotfox since their high school days, and they are still making me proud. I look forward to seeing them again. 

Pravada features the very talented trio of Jesse Lee, Casey Tennis, and Hubert Glover. After a stint in Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s, the band is back in town and rocking us with their original melodically driven pop-rock. 

Goldenboy is from L.A., so you know they’ll be, well, golden.
