Get Artsy in the Park!

Experience local art and enjoy summer weather with friends and family at Art in the Park. 

“Everyone is welcome to come, and everyone is welcome to participate in the 3rd annual Art in the Park on August 4,” local artist Dara Vucetic, organizer of the Garden Party – Art in the Park said.

The event that takes place at Lynden Hills Park on August 4 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This event grew organically, with Councillor Cheryl Antoski, founder of the Community Garden Network, making a suggestion that the community garden in Lynden Hills Park would be a great venue for an artistic celebration. 

“People shouldn’t have to go out of town to experience the arts,” Vucetic agreed and ran with the idea.

The event has a nice relaxed feel and is a good opportunity to come together and get to know each other.  It gets everyone in one place, celebrating the arts, the community garden, and a great place to live.

The line up is fantastic and ranges from amateur to professional artists; from musicians to yoga sessions.  There’s something for everyone with interactive activities for young and young at heart participants. It can be difficult to spread the word about these events in the first few years, so if you didn’t know about it but would have liked to take part, there’s still a little time – please contact Dara via the facebook page, or by email at illbehaveipromise@hotmail.com. 

The more, the merrier, is her motto.  The list of vendors has grown well each year with more and more people finding out about it.

Joan Minnery Enterprises – Motivation, Movement & Music  – will be presenting Waistliners Dance Team, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. where the public can participate in line dancing

Moksha Yoga Brantford – will be leading two classes at 1 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

The Briers Edge will offer workshops at their booth where the public can create their own piece of art on pre-poured canvas.

Equal Ground Community Gardens will also offer a garden themed workshop.

My Pet Moss:  Will help the public can create their own habitat and take home their pet moss to take care of at their booth.

In the meantime, the public is asked to take part in a photo contest that will take place during the event.  Submissions are sent via the facebook page, and will be made into an online album with links to the artists pages.  The public will vote on their favourite pictures, which will have been printed as a 5×7 image,  and there will be a small prize for winning. 

“It’s a great way to get some interesting photos of Brantford” Dara said. “And a great way to get your photographs out there.” 

Participants do not need to be present at the event to enter.
