Art in the Park 2010 was a rather “coasty” day as a fine mist mingled with the artists, their wares and the curious public assembled at Sheldon Park this past July 4th.
She sells sea shells down by the seashore.Variety was the theme. Mediums such as seashells, cranberry vines, oyster shells, textiles and threads, homespun, glass, mixed media and paints and more were exhibited in creative and practical ways.Sparkling glass and mixed media catches attention. Beautiful handmade pottery.The pottery booth was absolutely full of the most beautiful handmade pieces. Very impressive. While the spinning and weaving booth was a buz of activity with women spinning wool right before my eyes and creating intricate woven fabric on a portable loom. I always want to dive right in and join these ladies whenever I see them at work!Rita is weaving yet another one of a kind piece of fabric.
And of course, us knitters and crocheters were there in full force. By nature we always seem to have plenty to do and even more to say, to each other and anyone else who will listen. We even got the crowd involved, teaching kids and adults to finger knit.

All in all, Art In The Park 2010 turned out to be a well attended, interesting and enjoyable time for everyone.

Thank-you to all of the artists who attended. You are AWESOME!
