Pearson Lakes Art Center presents Art in the Park August 4 

The Pearson Lakes Art Center presents the Annual Art in the Park on Saturday, August 4.

Visual Arts Director Danielle Clouse-Gast says some 80 different Artists will have their work on display.  "We'll have a variety of artists down at the Greenspace.  A lot of different medias will be represented.  Over 80 artists actually on the grounds this year, featuring works in jewelry, ceramics, paintings, pottery and sculpture and the like, so, there will be a lot to see."

She adds that special activities will be offered at the kid's tent.  "We'll have the Kid's Booth down there that Holly Zinn will put together for kids to work on some art projects, and then there will also be the Art Center Information Tent to learn more about what the Art Center offers and what's coming up at the Art Center." 

She notes that Art in the Park is a juried show.  "With the Artists being there from 9 to 4, they're selling their works, but also throughout the day that show will be judged, so if visitors attend the show later in the day, they can kind of keep an eye out for maybe who our Best in Show is, our First and Second Place Winners, and the Best New Artist Award, and then have the opportunity to see who has won the show."

Art in the Park will run from 9-4 on Saturday at Preservation Plaza in Arnolds Park and is free and open to the public.
