Shari Knox takes helm of Fishers Arts Council

FISHERS, Ind. – Shari Knox has been selected as the new president of the Fishers Arts Council (FAC), an arts group that promotes spaces for public art and local artists in the city and in the private sector since 1995.

The Fishers resident has been on the board for three years, most recently as its vice president. Her goal is to ensure that FAC remains vibrant and reflects the needs of both the community and artists to add more visual and performing arts in Fishers. Knox sees the need for art in public venues and in business venues as well. 

Knox is also involved with the following groups: Association of Junior Leagues International and Junior League of Indianapolis, 500 Parade Association, Fishers Citizens Government Academy, Fishers Police Department Citizens Academy Alumni Association, the National Crispus Attucks Alumni Association, and is a lifetime member of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Citizens Indiana Alumni Association. She earned an MBA in marketing from Indiana Wesleyan University. Knox enjoys spending time with family, friends, traveling, and is an avid Indianapolis Colts fan.

Knox was instrumental in partnering with GAI Consultants to have artists exhibit work on a rotating basis at its Fishers location. The current exhibit at GAI Consultants features artwork by James Anderson. The FAC seeks to expand these opportunities.

The FAC also hosts the monthly Art Gallery in City Hall exhibits and the annual Arts Crawl. The group is looking into additional opportunities to help visual and performing artists living in Fishers share their work with the general community.

For more information on the Art Gallery, Arts Crawl or would like to host an exhibit of a local artist, please contact Knox at sknox0031@comcast.net or thomasrich1952@gmail.com.
