Talbot Street Art Fair returns June 8, 9

INDIANAPOLIS — The 58th annual Talbot Street Art Fair will take to the streets on June 8 and 9 in Indianapolis, between 16th and 20th streets on Talbott and between Delaware and Pennsylvania streets east/west.

The fair features 270 artists from throughout the nation as well as Indiana. Admission is free. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 8 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 9. Food and beverages also will be available for sale.

From its humble beginnings in Talbot Alley, just south of its current location, where a dozen Herron Art School friends got together to put on a little art fair with the help of one of their professors, Elmer Tafflinger, the Talbot Street Art Fair has grown into one of the nation’s finest and most recognized fairs. It has been listed in the nation’s top 100 fine arts and crafts fairs for many years running.

Part of the charm of the fair is that it is held in a historic neighborhood on the near northside, and that the cornerstone building at 16th and Pennsylvania has been the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Herron School of Art, and is now Herron High School, which is a big supporter of the arts and the fair in sharing their facilities.

Having an art fair on the city streets is not an easy task as home owners change, signage changes, even trees change, and all can affect the booth layout of the fair. But the constant in all of this is the art. It is always varied in taste and cost.

Mediums include paintings in oil, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media; sculpture in a variety of media; glass that is etched, stained, blown, and slumped; fabric from “ready to wear” to woven rugs for the floors; wood from bowls to furniture; jewelry in bronze, silver, copper, gold, clay, brass, and glass; clay from the decorative to the functional; and photography from “old time” black and white to special effects in color.

To see the full list of artists prior to attending the fair, or for directions, check the website TalbotStreet.org.
