IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine and Gallery Walk
CARMEL, IN – This Saturday evening, July 14th, marks the fourth annual IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine, an eclectic evening that marries art and wine in a relaxing atmosphere within the Carmel Arts & Design District. The event is from 5 – 10 p.m. and wineries from across the state and beyond will have booths with wine available to taste or purchase by the glass or the bottle.
Guests of all ages can enjoy the unique stores, galleries and music for free, as there is no cost to enter the Arts District. Adults who wish to sample wines and are 21 years of age or older will be asked for a valid photo ID and a $15 tasting fee (cash only). Most wineries will accept credit and debit cards for purchases made at their booths. The fee includes a commemorative etched sampling glass to use that evening and keep as a memento.
AmazonMP3’s “Artist on the Rise” and emerging band, Scars on 45 will perform on the main stage in the PNC Bank parking lot, on the corner of Main Street and Range Line Road. Four Nebuchadnezzar wine bottles, five Rehoboam wine bottles and 12 over-size wine glasses decorated by Carmel Arts & Design District artists will be on display. The restaurants throughout the District will be open to complete the evening.
The event also includes the celebrated IU Health North Hospital Gallery Walk. A favorite event for art lovers that occurs on the second Saturday of each month, all galleries will be open and welcome guests for special exhibits and art features.
Be sure to stop by and see the District’s newest outdoor sculpture on the southeast corner of Main Street and 1st Avenue SW. Sculptor Kevin Barrett created “Sundance,” the latest addition to the outdoor walking art gallery in the Arts & Design District. (Picture attached) This sculpture, on loan from the artist, is part of a revolving art program established by the City of Carmel. Carmel’s outdoor sculptures attract visitors to the district and have become favorite spots for photo opportunities.
