The Town of Kingston Springs, Tennessee will again be sponsoring ART IN THE PARK at the L.L. Burns Parks in Kingston Springs on Saturday, October 5th from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
As always this event will showcase area artists, artisans and musicians in a fabulous outdoor venue along the Harpeth River. Plan now to come stroll the trail of artists and artisans and view their art selections entered in competition. Many of the competitive pieces will be available for sale, along with other pieces offered by the artists. Attendees will be able to vote on a “People’s Choice” award. A board of judges will determine all other awards. Cash prizes and ribbons will be awarded in each category. The competitive art will be on display in the Activities Center there at the park. Participation in the competition is open to all areas and ages 14 and up.
Live music will be performed between 11:00 and 5:00. Other members of the art community will also be on hand to do demonstrations of artistic processes and techniques. There is no admission or parking charge, and there is no booth fee or commission charged to any participating artist or artisan. All art or crafts for sale or display must be handmade by the artist.
Also this year is the return of the Aspiring Photographer Contest for ages under 14. No advance registration needed.
