Summer time and art venues are popping up like new grass. It’s wonderful!
Artist Denise Collins is running Art in the Park, an event that appeals to me. It’s happening in the Village of Cremona, AB. Starting Sunday June 7, it will run every second Sunday at the Nature Trail Park on Main Street, from 1 to 4 pm.
She’s inviting artists in all mediums to join her. There is no charge to set up your display and sell your work. Bring your own table, chair, tent — whatever you need. You may also want to do demonstrations — always a good way of connecting with potential buyers.
“If you feel more comfortable with a tent, please feel free to bring one,” says Denise. “The event typically will not run if it’s raining, as people tend to avoid the park on rainy days. But if you would like one for shade, I ask that you bring your own.
“We are currently in the process of building a gazebo for the park, which should be finished in the next couple weeks. That will be open for artists to put their tables in as well once it’s completed.”
Denise says Art in the Park is pretty relaxed. You can set up at 1 pm but slightly before is preferable. As far as take down, it’s preferable if you can stay until 4 but if you have to leave early that is just fine.
If you’d like to take part, let Denise know so she can include you in the advertising. (Click on poster for details.) She’ll be set up on each of those Sundays doing drawing demonstrations.
“There should be info on the Village of Cremona’s website. And on the Cremona Buy and Sell FB page. Depending on how this year goes, I will consider starting up a website for next year.
“You don’t have to attend all the dates either. It runs into August and you can attend as many or as few days as you like. The village and all the people who stopped last year were thrilled with the event!”
