Indianapolis, IN—The Full Circle Nine Gallery (FC9) is proud to announce its grand opening as part of the IDADA First Friday Art Tour, on Friday, February 3, 2017.

The grand opening will commence at 6pm, lasting until approximately 9pm, and admission is free. The new gallery is located within the Circle City Industrial Complex, specifically Suite B23, in the South Studios. Patrons may enter through the South Studios door.

The FC9 grand opening will premiere with the work of 8 artists: Jeanne Dill, Kimberly Ewing, Dan Haynes, Joy Hernandez, Rachel Illingworth, Andrew Koeling, Terrence Loftus, and Robin Toulouse. The artists offer a diverse collection of their work, from abstract to pop to traditional, created using a variety of media such as paint, aerosol, photography, assemblage, metalwork and mixed media.

About the Artists

The Full Circle Nine Gallery aims to provide a space and a gallery home for artists of various styles and media, brought together by good will and common art goals.

“We are a fantastic ragtag mix of artists who take our work seriously,” said mixed media artist Rachel Illingworth. “And yet, we still work to boost each other up, to be more professional and even more creative. We are different because we support each other while still providing a platform for us each to do better in our own personal art business.”

“They aren’t as much a crew as they are a family, with everything that entails,” said artist and gallery secretary Andrew Koeling. “We come from different backgrounds, but came together for a shared purpose: to support one another and to collectively make something greater than any of the independent parts.”

About the Full Circle Nine Gallery

The Full Circle Nine Gallery operates as an artist cooperative gallery, with each of the member artists and the board dividing gallery duties and artists roles. The artists will work together to help each other advance in skill and practice, as well as to bring success to the gallery. It is located at 1125 Brookside Ave., Indianapolis, IN, 46202.
