‘Art in the Garden’ to feature Osborne


After a long shutdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Carmel Arts Council will conduct its first event of the year April 10 with “Art in the Garden,” featuring Carmel artist Scott Osborne.
In 2020, Donna Tutwiler, past CAC president and now the CAC’s gallery coordinator, created “Art in the Garden.” The CAC’s mission is to encourage children to participate in the arts as part of their educational development.

Barb Hammer is the CAC co-chair. Other committee members are Mary Jane Roth, Robin Spyker, Mary Harshbarger and Linda Williams.

This year, the organization will feature the Children’s Table, giving kids a hands-on experience with the artists. In 2020, the pandemic limited options for the children’s engagement.

Osborne will set up shop and work with clay in the garden by The World’s Smallest Children’s Art Gallery from 4 to 8 p.m. during Meet Me on Main, sponsored by Allied Solutions, in the Carmel Arts & Design District. As an interactive event, children will have the opportunity to join the fun and work with clay at the Children’s Table.

Safety measures will be implemented with face masks, physical distancing and frequent cleanings. The gallery, at 40 West Main St., showcases student art throughout the year on a rotating basis among local schools. Admission is free.

As part of part of Meet Me on Main, mixed-media artist Wendy Simon, an Indiana Artisan from Frankfort, will demonstrate her sculpting techniques and bring a new cartoon creature to life from 5 to 9 p.m. at Indiana Artisan Gifts & Gallery, 22 N. Range Line Rd.
