This month’s gallery walk in the Arts and Design district in downtown Carmel will feature a unique experience – horse-drawn carriage rides.
The carriage rides are available weather permitting on a first-come, first-served basis from 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 8. Pickup will be in the PNC Bank parking lot located at the intersection of Main Street and Range Line Road.
But have no fear, city organizers assure Current that the horses will only cross over the Monon Trail on the route down Main Street, and at no time will they traverse the trail.
The first 300 visitors throughout the galleries will also receive a free rose.
People will also have the opportunity to paint their own masterpiece courtesy of Wine & Canvas from 5 to 9 p.m. in the building at 22 N. Range Line Rd, just south of Simply Sweet Shoppe.
But if shopping for art is more the object of your visit, make sure to check out the exhibit of bright, contemporary acrylic paintings and mixed media works by Laura Liotti that will be on display at the ArtSplash Gallery.
There will also be a showcase of new artists at the Eye On Art Gallery and a collection of jazz-inspired sculptures at Soori Gallery.
And back by popular demand, this month’s scavenger hunt will begin at the ArtSplash Gallery and offer participants the chance to win an original watercolor of the J. Seward Johnson sculpture “Unconditional Surrender,” painted by Valentina Shvrykova; two tickets to any performance by the Carmel Symphony Orchestra; or a family pass to the Museum of Miniature Houses.
