Important Zoning Update!

We are now one week away from our zoning hearing, seeking a variance for our new location at 4186 Broadway St. We have received much support – over fifty letters to our City Planner and 330 signatures on our online petition.

The end is near and we still need your help! It’s been mentioned to me countless times how important it is to have warm bodies in seats at the hearing. If you are able, we would love your support as we go before the Zoning Board with our request.

The hearing date is Tuesday March 3, 2015 and cases begin at 1:00pm

The location is SerVaas Public Assembly Room (second floor) at the Indianapolis City-County building located at 200 East Washington St., Indianapolis, IN 46204. There is a large surface parking lot just east of the City-County building on Alabama St.

If you plan on going to the hearing, please let us know as we would like to anticipate attendance. Also, let us know if you have any questions. You can contact me at curt@fineestaterugs.com on either account. We will update our hearing info later in the week when we have a better idea of our position on the schedule.

For more information, please checkout our site
dedicated to the move and zoning variance.

Again, many thanks to everyone for the support and encouragement we’ve received!

Important Zoning Update!

Please note: There has been an administrative change and our variance hearing is now scheduled for Tuesday March 3, 2015 at 1:00 pm. *

We are pleased to let you know the Indianapolis Planning Division recommends approval of our variance request and that information will be provided to our Zoning Board for our 3/3/15 hearing. Staff support is very important and we’re encouraged by their findings. To view the recommendation of approval click here.

The City has received over 50 letters of support, the online petition has 325 signatures with over 130 supportive comments and local, paper petitions have yet more signatures. All very helpful!

We’d like to thank everyone for this vast outpouring of support that has come from all quarters – it is so appreciated. It’s great to have the real, local community voicing their views and not being held captive to the will of a small, vocal group who are in opposition.

As we’re being continued, there’s still time to share your thoughts. Same details – write our City planner (robert.uhlenhake@indy.gov), sign our online petition.

Also, if you’re available, please think of attending the hearing now set for 3/3/15 at 1:00 pm. We’ll update you with hearing info as the event draws closer on our relocation site.

Fine Estate & Gallery Two have moved!

It’s been a while since we last communicated with you and if you saw our email of 12/20/14 you would likely have guessed our lack of chatter is due to the demands of moving a store full of rugs and art. And you would be right! To see a few photos of the move, click here.

Phone number, emails and websites remain the same.

Major Announcement of the Moment, (3/4/14)

We’re excited to announce the opening of Gallery Two in a space adjacent to Fine Estate. Gallery Two will be representing some of the best Indiana and regional artists working today: Roy Boswell, Mary Ann Davis, Wyatt LeGrand, Chris Newlund, Austin Pittman, David Seward, Donna Shortt, Jerry Smith and Todd Williams.

We will be debuting Gallery Two hanging alongside Fine Estate at Indiana Landmarks Center (1201 N. Central St. Indianapolis, IN 46202) this Friday as part of the IDADA First Friday gallery walk. Over 80 works will be on display from Gallery Two artists alongside pieces from Fine Estate Art. Seeing Steele’s Kirkwood Observatory should be another nudge. The Gallery Two artists will be present at the Landmarks debut— A celebratory launch of our new venture together.

The Grand Opening for Gallery Two is Thursday, April 17, 2014 beginning at 5:00p. All the artists will be present for this festive evening in the newly remodeled space, adjacent to Fine Estate (Gallery Two address is 5912 N. College Ave). We’re very pleased to announce that Sue Wickliff will be adjunct staff and a point of contact for Gallery Two. To see our recent announcement click here
