Stutz Holiday Open House and more!


Stutz Holiday Open House
Friday, December 2nd 5-10PM

I wanted to take the time to personally invite you to the Stutz Holiday Open House. I will have my studio open as part of the Holiday Open House at the historic Stutz Business and Art Center on Friday December 2nd from 5-10PM.  More than 40 artists will have their studios not only full of amazing work, but also festively decorated. Stop by the Raymond James Stutz Art Gallery on the first floor to see artwork from all the participating artists.  This will have you figure out where you want to stop first.  Maps will be given out at the entrance so you don’t get lost.  Free parking will be available in the parking lot on 11th Street between Senate and Capitol Avenues, just north of the building.

I have been hard at work this year creating pieces celebrating women throughout history.  From Ada Lovelace the first computer programmer, Victoria Woodhull the first woman to run for president, to Hedy Lamarr who besides being an accomplished actress, helped create technology behind Wi-fi and GPS.

I will also have artwork up at several group exhibitions throughout Indianapolis.  I will have a few pieces at 924 Gallery’s Tiny.  All pieces in this exhibition are all under 6x6x6 inches.  Most pieces are even priced under $100 and they allow you to pick up your purchased piece before the closing of the exhibition in January.  I will also have work at the Harrison Center for the Art’s Blue Indy.  The color theme for this year’s exhibition is, you guessed it, blue. I will also have pieces on display at the Central Library downtown as part of Indiana’s bicentennial celebration; Indiana turns 200 on December 11th.  I have been very busy creating pieces celebrating Hoosier women.

Don’t forget to support your local businesses when shopping this holiday season and also that original artwork makes a great gift.

Happy Holidays,
Bonnie Fillenwarth

New Work! Anne Jump Cannon

Annie Jump Cannon (1863-1941)

An astronomer for over 40 years, Anne Jump Cannon developed a classification of stars that we still use today.  With this system, she is credited with cataloging nearly 400,000 stars from photographs taken with a telescope. While at work, she averaged cataloging three stars a minute. She became deaf after contracting scarlet fever in her thirties. Stop by and see her at the Stutz Holiday Open House December 2nd!
