Arts in the Park, sponsored by the Port Clinton Artists’ Club, will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 4-5, at Lakeview Park in Port Clinton.
Nearly 120 artists from Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Florida will be showing and selling their original creations. The show is open to the public and parking is free. One of the oldest art festivals in Ohio, Arts in the Park is celebrating 55 years of continuing to bring unique and original art to Ottawa County.
Artisans will be displaying and selling ceramics, jewelry, glass, paintings, photography, wood, mixed media, textiles and fiber art. Artwork will be judged by the prestigious talents of Irene Finck, retired, Ohio Arts Council; Columbus watercolorist Kevin Buckland; art lovers Pertain Buckland and Connie Pfeiffer; and Dee Cochran, batik artist and president of the Port Clinton Artist’s Club.
For the second year, Pat Catan’s Craft Centers is the sponsor of the Children’s Area, a fun-filled part of the festival. Watch your child’s face light up as they create functional art. Fun and engaging activities will be going on throughout the two-day art festival.
