VACI Partners and the artists included in the Art in the Park sale are doing an anti-rain dance this year. And this is not just because of how rainy the past two weeks have been; rather, during last year’s art sale, it rained so hard even the fused glass under Wendy Cohen’s tent got wet and Sean Huntington lost one of his watercolor paintings.
The forecast for Sunday is a little overcast, but that won’t stop the artists at “Art in the Park” from bringing some sunshine to Miller Park. Last month’s show was likewise threatened with rain before the vendors and buyers drove the clouds away with their enthusiasm and art.
This Sunday’s show, from 12 to 4:30 p.m., sees many of the same vendors from last time, some of whom have been selling at the show for years and some of whom are newcomers, including students from the School of Art.
Among the old hands are painter Sean Huntington and Hope Alcorn, who will show her jewelry. Huntington came to “Art in the Park” for the first time in 2006, an experience that helped to change the course of his life.
