Submit to Another Organization

The Meyer-Najem Corp. headquarters in Fishers’ Nickel Plate District hosts quarterly exhibits featuring contemporary art with a modern or abstract feel.

The gallery does well with large 2-D hanging works and a collection of small works, or about 40 smaller pieces. The space can be shared with another artist. Works will be available for purchase. Exhibiting artists enjoy an opening reception at Meyer-Najem.

The spacious open-concept gallery space is open to the public. Its gray and white walls offer neutral backgrounds to contrast artwork. A hallway branches off the gallery with multiple spotlights to showcase more art. High ceilings and exposed ductwork round out the contemporary space.
