Satch’s Art Featured on HGTV’s “Good Bones”

Mina, Karen and Satch

It’s been an exciting journey that began on January 5, 2018.  During a First Friday opening at my gallery, Satch Art Space located in the Circle City Industrial Complex, over my shoulder, I heard, “That would be perfect in the dining room… Oh, I love that one too!”  Those are magical words for every artist to hear.  I turned around and said, “Hi, I’m Satch the Artist!” setting in motion my opportunity to work with HGTV’s series, “Good Bones” starring mother and daughter team, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak Hawk.

By the time I had exchanged emails and shared photographs of my art work with the show’s design team, we had a list of nine major pieces.  Each piece is a strong example of my art work, created from recycled and vintage materials along with my alterations, that processes and expresses my thoughts about life.  My work is best described by my beloved friend and patron, Dr. Karen Stroup, “Confronting our humanity takes courage to move beyond the world that is seen to enter into the world of love, despair, anger, grief, loneliness, longing, disillusion, perplexity, humor, joy and hope.  The artist Satch, takes us on that journey.”

It’s my pleasure that Karen and Mina included my art into their exceptional creation, a rehabbed home at 515 Sanders Street on Indianapolis’ near south side on episode four, season three of their inspirational TV show, “Good Bones.”

Interview with Pete Brown on WFYI’s “Art of the Matter”

Satch, Pete and HaroldRecently, Pete Brown of WFYI’s Art of the Matter visited Satch Art Space for an interview about my life as an artist.  Pete also brought along his son Harold, his ace intern.  It was a pleasure and privilege to have Pete and Harold at the gallery to talk about my art and the impact of becoming an artist after twenty-seven years of being in the corporate world.  Pete is an artist that I respect and admire.  Our history goes back many years to when we were fellow artists represented by Lolly Mahaney’s gallery in Zionsville, Indiana.  Here’s a big thank you to Pete for producing such a wonderful interview!  And, be sure to check out Pete Brown’s incredible app for connecting arts organizations with interested people, Piggyback.

Johnny Burgin and Quiqué Gomez

It was wonderful to host two Blues Masters in Satch Art Space for an exceptional performance that will always be remembered and was enjoyed by all.  One special guest, documentary film maker Robert Mugge summed up the evening with this Facebook post.

Thanks to Johnny and Quiqué for sharing their art with everyone that gathered at Satch Art Space.

The exhibition that accompanied the performance was new work that was inspired by music.  This included a large painting made with acrylic and oils using text from the Johnny Burgin song, Love Me Like I Want It, from his Greetings from Greaseland album.

Satch Art SpaceFor two years, I have maintained a gallery of 120 square feet on the second floor of the Circle City Industrial Complex.  I’ve hosted and produced over one dozen exhibitions in my Satch Lost and Found Art Gallery and in other galleries within the Circle City Industrial Complex.

In April, I will be opening my new art space of 740 square feet on the main floor of the Circle City Industrial Complex.  To celebrate, I am hosting a reception and open house on April 7 (IDADA First Friday) from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.  I will be showing new work and Ron Kern will be showing a selection of photographs from the series, Singular Studies from Satch’s Studio.  Music will be a curated selection of jazz performed by legendary Indianapolis musicians, including Wes Montgomery, from vinyl LPs.  Also, I will be presenting the new work of abstract landscape painter, Dave Voelpel in the adjacent Stokol Gallery.

Satch Art Space will be hosting many exhibitions and music events in the new art space. For June’s First Friday, Satch will be hosting Chicago blues great Johnny Burgin for a rare solo performance.

Big News!

paintingsatchartspaceThe big new is… I am opening an expanded gallery at the Circle City Industrial Complex.  The new gallery is named, Satch Art Space.  I am planning a series of exhibitions and music events for 2017.  The first big event is March First Friday which will present the exhibition, The History of Indianapolis Punk Rock!  The exhibition presents photographs, flyers and historical information from the Indianapolis punk rock scene in the late 1970s through the 1980s in Satch Art Space and the adjacent Stokol Gallery.  The exhibition’s opening night is First Friday, March 3.  Indianapolis band, Cheetah Priest, will perform a special show.  And, a display of historic punk records and ephemera will be shown by Indiana Music and Entertainment Museum.

Making a handmade flyer to promote a punk rock band and its show was an art unto itself.  Typically, the flyers were confined to an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper to accommodate a xerox machine, which was the printer used to make copies that were pasted and stapled up all over the city.  The flyers not only included the information for the show, but also put forward the image and branding of the bands and the vibe of the punk rock movement itself.  This exhibition sets forth the unique art of the punk rock flyer and the corresponding history of Indianapolis punk rock.

The exhibition in the Stokol Gallery will be open weekdays, 9 am to 5 pm, from March 3 through March 31, 2017.  The exhibition is sponsored by Satch Art Space and Irvington Vinyl.
