New Art Gallery and Studio to Open in Downtown Bargersville, IN
Local artist Dianna Porter, of PortalUnlimited, is set to open the doors of a new gallery/art studio space at 10 Plummer St. in downtown Bargersville. Grand opening is set for Saturday, June 3rd from 12 noon to 8:00 pm. “This has been a dream of mine for about 40 years”, Porter said. She is supported by her husband, Bill, who will volunteer in the gallery. Art will be available in all price ranges, from $10-$2500. Digital art prints and original art will be for sale as well as the work of other area 3-D artists. Dianna specializes in commissioned custom art and keeps her calendar full. Pricing for custom art is available upon request in the gallery. Other creative products will also be for sale. “There are a lot of new things happening in Bargersville! It’s such a quaint little town. All the merchants are very supportive of one another and it’s exciting to be a part of this growth spurt! I think it will be well worth the trip to come down and see what we have to offer.” Classes will be offered on Monday and Tuesday evenings. Monday will be a drawing class, “So You Think You Can Draw” and Tuesdays, a watercolor class, “Watercolor, Controlled Chaos”. Go to www.portalunlimited.com to get more information and register. You may also register in the gallery. Classes will begin the week of June 12th. Dianna is a graduate of Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, MI.
