IU Health North Hospital Gallery Walk in the

Carmel Arts & Design District this Saturday, October 14th



CARMEL, IN – Master Carver Lee Saberson returns to the IU Health North Hospital Second Saturday Gallery Walk on October 14th. Watch Lee carve up pumpkins into some of your favorite characters near Old Town on the Monon’s leasing office.


The IU Health North Hospital Gallery Walk is the event to seek out original and exciting exhibits at District galleries. Make plans to dine at any one of the District restaurants and discover all of the exceptional offerings the District has. The Second Saturday Gallery Walk is on Saturday, October 14th from 5-9 p.m.


Additional featured artists and exhibits during the October Gallery Walk include: 



·         Art on Main Gallery & Gifts features Anastasiya Combs, Kim Greene and Carol Wagner during October.  Short Stories by Anastasiya Combs features paintings that have different styles and subjects but each has a short story and emotional journey that she will be sharing with others.

Kim Greene is another featured artist and her theme is Fresh for Fall and will feature oil paintings of chrysanthemums and other flowers and subjects largely in fall tones of greens and golds.  Carol Wagner’s collection of Impressionist style oil paintings is called Simple Things and will show the beauty in flowers and other "simple" objects.


·         This month at the Carmel Arts Council, the Prairie Trace Elementary Art students present An Artist’s Voice; Collaborative Voices on Visual Display. This art exhibit is focused on expressing the passions of the young artists at Prairie Trace. Students at Prairie Trace were challenged by their Art teacher, Mrs. Carnahan, to take the time to think about “things” that they deeply care about; “things” such as what they hope for in the future, “things” they are passionate about pursuing and “things” that stirred their heart and emotions. The CAC’s Community Art exhibit will feature a collection of elementary student art created by art students from Kawachinagano, Japan.


·         Simple Pleasures  by Carol Bell of CCA Gallery & Gifts is October’s featured exhibit. Her works from Blue Moon Pottery include ceramic tea mugs, coffee mugs, candy jars and vases of various sizes.


·         Jilly Jack Designs will be having a huge studio sale during the Gallery Walk. Find wonderful paper goods that inspire you to stay in touch, entertain and live beautifully.


·         Soori Gallery features paintings, bronze and acrylic sculptured works by leading American and international artists. Featured sculptors include Michael Wilkinson, Frederick Hart, Jerry Joslin and more.


·         New work by three distinctly dynamic artists, Justin Vining, Benny Sanders and Kyle Ragsdale will be rolling out studio work, many plein air pieces and exciting collaborations will be featured at Hoosier Salon.



Additional activities taking place during the October Gallery Walk include:



·         Pumpkin Carving by Lee Saberson near Old Town on the Monon Leasing Office
