Art in the Park

Sorry for the radio silence as of late! In any case, we’re back in the blogosphere, and recapping a few fun happenings. One of them being Art in the Park. This annual *free event – which celebrated 51 years on May 6th! – takes place in South Park, just south of downtown on Mass St. There are over 150 artists that participate in this event, displaying their crafts in little white tents scattered throughout the park. Here you can find jewelry, paintings, photographs, sculptures, etc. Also available for your enjoyment: food vendors and live music!

Spacious South Park.

Entertainment: Lawrence City Band!

It was such an enjoyable Sunday, spent wandering through the park and appreciating the local artwork. Although we didn’t make any large purchases, we did come across some fantastic artwork by Robbin Loomas, and had to pick up a couple of her┬ánote cards. She is a local photographer who captures local scenes in the downtown area. She manipulates her photographs to look like paintings using a computer program, and the results are awesomely vibrant. After having a short conversation with her, she admitted her inspiration comes from the impressionist paintings of Pairs, and it shows. She has great talent, and I hope to see her at Art in the Park next year.

Welcome to South Park.
