New gallery opening in downtown Jeffersonville

Gadabout Gallery and Artisan Shoppe spurred by opening of Big Four Bridge

JEFFERSONVILLE — Another business is popping up in downtown Jeffersonville in the wake of the Big Four Bridge opening on the Indiana side.

Gadabout Gallery and Artisan Shoppe, 249 Spring St., will host its grand opening from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, June 7, according to a news release. The gallery is just a few blocks from the base of the Indiana ramp to the Big Four Bridge. Gadabout is owned by Dawn Spyker and Jennie DiBeneditto, local artists and owners of Silica Ceramic Studio, located across the street at 246 Spring St., according to the release. The gallery and shop will include pieces for sale from dozens of regional artists who work in a variety of media, from functional ceramics to ceramic sculpture, as well as paintings, jewelry, photography and basketweaving. Slumped and blown glass also will be featured. Among the artists on tap are Molly Gruninger, painter and muralist, and Sebastian Moh, ceramic artist.

Monthly shows will highlight work from notable artists in the gallery space.

Live music and hors d’oeuvres will be included in the opening. A ribbon-cutting with city officials is scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday.

The pedestrian and cyclist bridge that opened to Jeffersonville on May 20 — after more than a year of delays — has prompted a handful of new businesses to open, including Olive Leaf Bistro on Riverside Drive, the Red Yeti Brewing Co. on Spring Street and Pearl Street Treats.
