A $500 scholarship sponsored by Indiana Artisan Gallery will be awarded to a talented young artist at this year’s Carmel International Arts Festival.
Attendees can view entries to the gallery’s high school art exhibit during the festival on September 24 and 25. Everyone will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite creative work by an aspiring artist.
Indiana Artisan Executive Director Rosalyn Demaree welcomes the community’s participation in this new “People’s Choice Award” scholarship. Voting will take place at the gallery located at 22 N. Rangeline Rd in Carmel (just north of Main Street).
Carmel International Arts Festival
This major festival in Carmel brings together over 100 incredibly talented artists from across the country and nearly 30,000 people in a 2-day event in the arts and design district. Artists specialize in 9 different mediums including glass, 2D, 3D, paint, jewelry, photography, fiber, ceramic and wood.
The artists are located along the two main thoroughfares of the Arts & Design District in Carmel: Main Street and Range Line Road. The community is presented with the best samples to buy and take home.
Each artist goes through a juried process to ensure their art is unique, not mass-produced, and of the highest quality. Works of art are judged at the festival and prizes are awarded to the artists.
Additionally, the festival supports their mission by awarding several financial scholarships to local high school students. These scholarships are awarded based on works submitted to the Student Art Exhibition which is also on display during the festival.
