Each month, Nickel Plate Arts features a local craftsperson or artisan as our “Maker of the Month”. This October, we’re excited to have local artist Erik Lundorf share his illustration work with us. A freelance artist currently living in Indianapolis, Erik studied Studio Art with a concentration in oil painting at DePauw University. He currently works on a wide range of pieces, including privately commissioned portraits, comic strips, commercial illustration, and design, and most often in the form of ink drawings colored digitally or with watercolor. Erik will fit right in to our October programming which includes our Black & White exhibit and our very popular Comic Book in a Day event. Meet Erik and check out his work during First Friday on October 6th from 6-9pm. Can't make it to First Friday? We'll have Erik's work on display in our gift shop through the rest of the month. Gift shop hours are Wednesday - Friday from noon - 5pm and Saturday from 10am - 5pm.
