** Archived 2012 EVENT INFO **

Enjoy a summer evening experiencing vintages al fresco at IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine, a can't-miss event in the Carmel Arts & Design District.

Saturday, July 14 from 5- 10 p.m.
Adults 21 years of age and older are invited to unlimited wine tastings from participating wineries for only $15.

All ages are welcome to attend IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine, enjoy the music of Scars on 45, take in unique art and visit the District’s shops and restaurants.

In addition, July 14th is a Second Saturday, IU Health North Hospital Gallery Walk! Visit the Carmel Arts & Design District Gallery Association site for a complete list of participating galleries!
Many of the Carmel Arts & Design District boutiques and merchants will host special sales or promotions during the festival, while the diverse collection of galleries will host exhibits that spotlight wine-inspired works created by local, national and international artists. Some galleries and shops will even bring The Art of Wine to the already-colorful District streetscape by displaying giant, custom-designed wine bottles and glasses transformed by local artists. Again, the District’s galleries, shops, restaurants and entertainment will be available to all ages at Art of Wine.

Please note: The $15 fee for the tasting is cash only. If you wish to purchase bottles of wine at the wineries’ booths, credit cards will be accepted at most locations. An ATM is located at PNC Bank, 21 N. Range Line Road.


Entertainment
Scars on 45
Scars on 45
This has been a busy year for emerging band Scars on 45 from Leeds, England.

In March 2012, they landed an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In April, their self-titled debut album was released and in May they were featured as an AmazonMP3 Artist on the Rise. As busy as 2012 has been, the band’s success has been years in the making and full of ups and downs. Close to a record deal only to see it fall through and then a big break when the television show CSI: New York used the bands song, “Beauty’s Running Wild” for an extended closing scene. From there, Chop-Shop Records (an Atlantic-Records distributed label) signed Scars on 45.

The band includes Danny Bemrose (vocals/guitar), Stuart Nichols (bass), David “Nova” Nowakowski (keyboards), Aimee Driver (vocals) and Chris Durling (drums).

With the album release in full-swing, band member Danny Bembrose reflects on the thrill of playing to a live audience, “Just to be able to put yourself out there to let people know who you are is wonderful.”

The Carmel Arts & Design District is proud to bring Scars on 45 to the IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine.
