Relocation Announcement, (11/3/15)

Big news for Fine Estate! After a year fraught with location problems, we will finally be under one roof again. We are moving to 1332 N. Illinois, Indianapolis, IN 46202. The rugs have already moved from our Indy location (see top image, above) and fixtures and framing are moving as we speak. The Indiana Design Center galleries will remain open through November 21, 2015 and will then move during the week of Thanksgiving. More information on our soft opening schedule in the next few weeks but suffice it to say, we will be open for normal business by December 1, 2015.

We’ve joined the Indianapolis Downtown Art Dealers Association (IDADA) and we will be on their First Friday schedule beginning Friday December 4, 2014! Come have a cathartic drink with us!

We’d really like to thank the Indiana Design Center. The move to Carmel was a hastily put-together plan but they quickly accommodated our needs in a very nice space. And the wonderful IDC staff was great to work with in our co-marketing efforts. It was a timely interim solution and we hope to continue to work with th
em on pop-ups and other one-off shows in Carmel.
And finally, thanks to all of you – our wonderfully loyal customer base. As irregular as things have been, so many of you have been so supportive and we really appreciate it. Stick with us – normalcy returns very soon!

Kindest regards,

Curt Churchman

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.

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
