2015 Participants Artists and Photographers

South Portland’s 36th annual Art in the Park Show & Sale will be held in Mill Creek Park on Saturday, August 8, 2015. The show will feature original art work and photography by up to 175 artists in styles, sizes and prices to suit all tastes and budgets.

The beautiful park atmosphere and the quality of the artwork, as well as food, music and fun for the kids combine to make South Portland’s Art in the Park a favorite summertime event for the whole family.

For the kids, Kids in the Park, provides an opportunity to make art under the supervision of show day volunteers. Kids can also enjoy face painting. Kids in the Park and face painting are free to all children. Kids in the Park hours are 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The Student Art tent, next to the Judges' Tent, features work from students in South Portland schools. Every year, the Committee chooses three student art works to use in promotional materials for the show including posters, t-shirts, and the program cover.

In the Food Court, vendors sell delectable dishes ranging from hamburgers and soft drinks to ethnic cuisine.   And live music in the afternoon provides a toe-tapping background for the art, food and fun.

Mill Creek Park is located on Broadway between Ocean Street and Cottage Road, one block east of the Casco Bay Bridge. For more information, contact Rick Towle at (207) 767-7650 or
