The Port Clinton Artists’ Club’s 55th Arts in the Park will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 4-5, at Lakeview Park in Port Clinton. Many artists return to this exciting festival year after year due to their success and the serenity the area has to offer. Exceptional, original art is displayed and sold by nearly 120 artists coming from as far away as Florida. The show is free and open to the public. One of the oldest art festivals in Ohio, Arts in the Park is celebrating 55 years of continuing to bring unique and original art to Ottawa County.
“This is the best art show in Ottawa County,” said watercolor artist Jim Siemer. “I have been doing shows around Ohio for a long time, and I’m always successful here, while having a great time.”
The Port Clinton Artists’ Club is seeking artists for this year’s show. All art must be originally designed and created by the artist. No wholesale or retail items are permitted. In addition to Best in Show and People’s Choice, judging will be in multiple categories including ceramics, drawing, glass, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, textiles/fiber and wood. An application and map can be downloaded at www.portclintonartistsclub.com or interested artists can call Event Chairwoman Barbara Radebaugh at 419-341-0390.
