Art in the Park is an outdoor art show and sale that has been running annually in Stouffville since 2015.
The event — which returns to Memorial Park on June 11 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. — is a celebration of art and culture for our community.
In addition to the diverse group of artists showcasing their talents through a variety of mediums, the town’s cultural facilities also take part by highlighting their services and providing crafts and activities to the families attending.
“There is a real energy and excitement to this event and the artists are looking forward to meeting and engaging with members of our community to share their passions and talent,” says Julia Troiani, special events coordinator.
Last year’s winner of the People’s Choice award, Whynot Designs, will be in attendance once again with his wood art.
This year’s show will feature the expertise of approximately 30 artists. The show will include fine art paintings, jewellery, pottery, textile art, photography and more.
All artists must submit an application along with samples of their artwork to be considered for acceptance. The artwork is reviewed taking into consideration originality/creativity, mastery of technique, overall impression, and impact.
“Town staff would like to thank the Presenting Sponsor, telMAX, and the Diamond Sponsor, StateView Homes for their support of the event,” adds Troiani.
