Get to Know Us

The Talbot Street Art Fair has brought years of art to the historical Herron-Morton neighborhood located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. This annual, summer fair brings together gallerists, collectors, art professionals, and art lovers of all ages, and gives them the opportunity to engage in conversation, build community relationships, purchase art, and get inspired by our talented regional & national artists.

Putting together such a well-loved event wouldn't be possible with the dedication and hard work of our committee. We're proud to introduce this year's team that strives to make the 2024 fair just as memorable.


Gayle Herrli


While working as a Home Care Hospice Nurse, I began working in clay in 1985. It allowed me self-expression of joy and gratitude, a celebration of life. I am primarily self-taught but have taken several workshops to develop my skills.

Since I work independently in my studio I enjoy interacting with people at art fairs and exhibitions. I feel very successful when a child comes into my booth and belly laughs while playing in the fountains. Working as an artist with Artmix of Indiana allows me to combine my art and past nursing career by volunteering teaching clay at Peyton Manning’s Children’s Hospital.
It is a gift to be able to make a living doing something I truly enjoy on all levels.

Kelly Jenkins

Zapplication Manager

Kelly has always had a love of glass, starting with her fascination with the lime green, fluorescent glass rock in her brother's fish tank. Her journey with glass art started later in life after taking a stained-glass class as an adult. Stained glass didn’t quite fit, but once she discovered kiln formed glass, the universe opened up new creative doors. Kelly shows her work at art fairs in the Midwest as well as at the CCA Gallery in Carmel. She also teaches glass jewelry at the Indy Art Center.
