Fine arts on display at the 26th annual Art in the Park festival

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – “Art in the Park” is back this year after being canceled last year due to COVID 19.

This year marks the 26th annual Art in the Park event. There are about 24 different stalls here on Sunday, and they all have something a little different to offer.

“You’re going to see the best that each of these people did,” said event coordinator Mike Ilkiw. “Each piece is made individually, by hand. It is a premium product and every item is available for sale. If you see something you like, buy it because it’s the only one you’re going to find.

Local artists exhibit and sell some of their works. There is a bit of everything here. Pottery, painting, fiber work, and a little something for everyone. While the pandemic has caused difficulties for artists, they say they have used the downtime to focus on their craft.

“Of course during COVID it had a financial impact on all artists,” said artist Marian Stahn-Chamberlain. “All events have been canceled. So this part was a bit rough. But a lot of us turned that into a positive and just spent that time in our studios. We were able to work for a year and a half and produce and try new things. And so there is a lot of work that has evolved.

Art in the Park will take place on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
