The Port Clinton Artists’ Club is celebrating the announcement that health restrictions are finally being lifted all around Ohio, allowing its popular Arts in the Park show and festival to finally be held again.
The club will host the popular show at Port Clinton’s Lakeview Park on the shoreline of Lake Erie, with the spacious art festival to be held Saturday (10 a.m.-5 p.m.) and Sunday (10 a.m.-4 p.m.) on Aug. 7-8.
Because of the delay in approving this year’s show because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Port Clinton Artists’ Club is now actively seeking vendors to fill the remaining slots available for fine artists and crafters. Please go to https://portclintonartistsclub.com/ and click on the Arts in the Park tab to download an application. For more information, please email the show director Joan Patthoff at email@example.com.
Exceptional, original art will be displayed and sold by nearly 100 artists coming from around the Midwest. The show is free and open to the public. One of the oldest art festivals in Ohio, Arts in the Park continues to bring unique and original art to Ottawa County.
On location will be fine art, crafts, a kids’ “Make and Take,” music, food and a wonderful view of Lake Erie for individuals and families.
This past week, Gov. Mike DeWine said Ohio’s health orders and restrictions for Covid-19 will be removed effective Wednesday, June 2. Restrictions will remain in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities, but all other health orders, including capacity limits, social distancing rules and the mask mandate, will end.
The three-week runway gives time for those not vaccinated to get the vaccine, which DeWine has described as an “invisible shield” and a “proven weapon.”
“It is time to end the health orders. It’s been a year. You’ve followed the protocols. You’ve done what we asked you to do. You’ve bravely fought the virus. Now, the cases are down, and we have a tested and proven weapon in this vaccine that all Ohioans 12 and over can now utilize,” DeWine said.
