The Catacombs

Saturday was a busy day here.  Not only did we get almost four inches of rain, but there was the Farmer’s Market, and Artrageous Fridays going on as well.  I got to do those things, and then later my husband took me to shoot photos of the flooding.  It was a busy day, and lots of photos.

The Catacombs is an old warehouse that I suspect was used as produce storage in the early part of the century that was located right next to the Wabash Train Station.  The Train station is now the Bus station, and depot.   At least that is my theory on it.  I didn’t take pictures of the outside of it, which I guess I should do to give you a layout of it in relation to the bus station and old photos that I have seen of that part of Orr Street, Walnut Street and 10th street.

This is the inside of the catacombs when it is filled with art exhibits.

See here are my suspensions.  You see the floor there, I figured that is where they would run a forklift and the built up sides just seem natural for storing things like apples, and bananas.

The gallery has started to build false walls in the enclosure to provide some private spaces for individuals to rent.

Some of the empty space starting to go through some remodeling.

This is one of the main hallways leading down to more spaces.

This is Deb, she works with silver and beads.

Further down in the depths, there are more rooms to the right and the left, and more false walls built in.

When you come to the end of previous path, it forms a T and this is the top of the T.

More rooms and more art here and there.

This is the other end of the hallway, from two photos up.

Either way it is a great event to support and a great place to set up your booth.  The prices are reasonable and it is four times a year.  So if you have some crafts saved up and want a fairly cheap rental rate this is a good place to start showing your work.   Just go to Artrageous Gallery on Walnut street for information….though she doesn’t know me.

Thanks for checking in today.
