Second Annual Art in the Park Comes to Stevensville

If you are one of the many who enjoys art and supporting your local community then you won’t want to miss the Second Annual Art in the Park celebration Saturday, June 19th, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in historic downtown Stevensville. Once again “Pocket Park”, that grassy knoll behind Rustico on Love Point Road, will transform into a live mixed media canvas when local artists display there fine art and crafts.

The festival, sponsored in part by the Arts and Entertainment District and Kent Island Federation of Arts is designed to celebrate the works of local artists and crafters from the Eastern Shore and beyond, as well as celebrating our cultural heritage. Local artist and event co-organizer Maureen Bannon says she hopes this years festival will not only be bigger and better, but will help promote those local artists whose work not only celebrates Kent Island and the Eastern Shore but works to keep its traditions alive.  “We keep working through these tough economic times hoping to emerge the better for our struggles and all-the-while we continue to encourage folks to help keep the art and history alive here,” said Bannon. “There is so much history and cultural talent on the Shore that folks don’t truly know about. What better way to showcase them than with a local festival,” she said.

A variety of art will be displayed including original paintings, photography, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, fused glass, ribbon weaving, digital print art and more. The local shops and historic sites will be open all day offering demonstrations and tours as well as art activities for children. There will be live music, local food vendors, and a farmer’s market.
