The Rogue River Artists Association hosts Art in the Park again this September. This juried art show is Saturday, September 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Garden Club Park next to the Rockford Dam. Admission is free.
“We are so excited to be hosting Art in the Park again this year,” said Paul Pate, president of the Rogue River Artists Association. “The event has always been a community favorite because it features a wide variety of mediums, the opportunity to meet and talk to the makers and is set in beautiful Garden Club Park nestled between the Rogue River dam and Rockford’s vibrant downtown.”
Art in the Park will feature over 50 Michigan artists showing a variety of art for sale including jewelry, pottery, paintings, photography, woodwork, home décor, leather work, fiber arts and sculpture. Many have won awards in their categories at local and regional shows.
“We have a great mix of popular returning artists as well as several who are new to Art in the Park,” said Pate. “What’s really great is you’re always going to see new art because we’re inviting a new mix of artists each year, and all of the artists are always creating new pieces and changing up their style and designs.”
A couple examples of artists making their debut appearance at Art in the Park this year are Madeline Kaczmarczyk and Brandon Johnson.
Some returning favorites include Rosemary Cheslock, Angela Sist, Mary Csenar, Linda Seamon and Noel Skiba.
All of the artists and artisans are juried into the show, plus some Rogue River Artists Association members will have tents set up by the beautiful new stage at the north end of the park.
“We hope people will make Rockford their destination on Saturday, September 10,” said Pate. “Not only will there be wonderful artists and artisans, there will be so much else to do… the Saturday farmers market, a great selection of shopping and dining, and walking or biking the White Pine trail.
Art in the Park will take place in Garden Club Park next to the Rogue River Dam in Rockford from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 10.
