Arts in the Park, a festival that celebrates art in all its various, wonderful forms – from fine arts to performance arts – will return to Town Center Park on May 18. Applications are now being accepted from artists and food vendors who wish to be part of this hands-on festival. Applications are available at suwaneeartsinthepark.com; the deadline to apply is April 30.
Exhibitors will be selected through a jury process and are eligible for prize money. The festival is particularly interested in artists who are willing to demonstrate their craft onsite or to educate the public about their art form.
Last year”s Arts in the Park festival included approximately 50 artists sharing and demonstrating their craft and drew more than 4,000 participants to Town Center Park. The 2013 festival, again hosted by the North Gwinnett Arts Association, will take place from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, May 18.
