News Release

On the near Southside a new store has opened that strives to bring art to everyone, even those with four legs. Eclective invites pet parents to stop in on Saturday, March 25th from 12-5pm for “Paws & Shop” and create art with their four legged friends! Guests can create paw-print art to take home and enjoy while supporting a good cause, and a portion of the proceeds from all paw art created will be donated to The Southside Animal Shelter. Eclective, a pet-friendly business, also offers dog treats, bows and gems to snazz up boring collars, and dog shampoo by Bass Farms. Guests can enter to win those items and more in this month’s raffle basket, also benefitting The Southside Animal Shelter. Guests can also star in the art! Eclective will have local artist Sarah Rae Cote creating pet caricatures or guests can pose a photo portrait with their fur babies.  

Opening at the beginning of this year, Eclective has been busy finding ways for art and community to intersect. Eclective is a unique blend of locally made and locally curated items that not only offers shopping, but allows you to learn from the artisans to create art yourself at workshops and special events, like “Paws & Shop.” The team behind Eclective believes in a broad definition of art, art is an expression of creativity in a form that is sharable with others. That form can take many shapes, from painting on canvas to upcycling vintage furniture to creating bath and body products. Co-Owner Piper Voge explains, “We desire to make art accessible to everyone, we do this by showing people how art can overlap with things that are already inside their comfort zones, like pets.”

Other unique art opportunities that can be found at Eclective range from spoken word poetry nights to Sci-fi and art, a combination book reading by members of the Speculative Fiction Guild and creating sci-fi inspired art, as well as painting workshops, all occurring the weekend of Paws and Shop. You can view their full calendar of events online at shopeclective.com/calendar.

Eclective is located at 2915 S. Meridian St. and is open Tuesday-Friday 11am-7pm and Saturdays and Sundays 12pm-5pm. Eclective is a women and minority owned business conveniently located on Indy’s southside, just ten minutes South of town and ten minutes North of Greenwood. Eclective is a collaboration between The Southside Vintage Marketplace and The Bindy Agency, with the mission to offer the best in local shopping and learning.
