After much anticipation Indiana Heritage Arts 37th Annual Exhibition and Sale opened Friday night to rave reviews! More than 200 people attended the opening night Preview and Awards presentation. From the comments I heard from guests they rated this show the best one yet.
When I heard there was a new store opening up in town that had both gyros and art, I wasn’t quite sure how the two would go together. Seems like a pretty unlikely combo but Steve Kemp, owner of Gyros Food & Art Studios, has got it all figured out.
An eclectic blend of food, jewelry, clothing, and art, Kemp’s store is definitely one-of-a-kind. Not to mention, he’s serving up the only gyro in Nashville! Just hearing about this place wasn’t enough; I had to go see it for myself.
For many years, Brown County has been known for its rich history and artistic roots stretching back to its origin as an art colony in the early 1900s. It’s one of the things that makes Brown County so special and it’s something that continues to this day!
Brown County’s art heritage can be seen all around. From traditional forms of art such as paintings and ceramics to more unconventional art like upcycled furniture and handcrafted home goods, art is alive and thriving in Brown County. Which is why Simply 4 You, a new shop in town, is a perfect fit!
For the past 13 years, thousands have flocked to the historic and picturesque Story Inn for the Indiana Wine Fair. And this year was no different, except that I was one of those people!
Even though this year the weather was far less than ideal for late April (cool, rainy, and only in the low 50s), it didn’t seem to slow people down. With over 30 wineries from all across the state, the Wine Fair is one of the oldest and largest wine events in Indiana. No wonder people braved the weather to check it out. After all, who wouldn’t want to spend an afternoon filled with wine, food, and music!
