"Eclectica" - Arthouse 60 - Dec. 22, 2004 - 2 1/2 stars

Currently overexposed Indianapolis artists have a new venue and audience for their works in the very art friendly Zionsville at the former home of the Pidge. Works maybe seen too many times before in other places by Kipp Normand, Ellie Siskind and Kyle Ragsdale make this feel like a mini Harrison Center for the Arts with the unleveled salon-style hanging. Artwork felt crowded in this little old house. The jewelry was of limited string and bead skill, the glass works were fantastic, though knick-knackishly small, and most of the art represented a visually current pop genre. The best art in the place were the limited edition rock concert posters (there's a serigraphy shop on site) by co-owner Jeff Brown for the likes of the String Cheese Incident. More of this please! Kudos for showing art without a theme dictating the direction of exhibited work and for making a concerted good start. Through Dec. 26, 2004; 317-735-1460. -Mary Lee Pappas
