Art in the Park
From May to September, one Saturday each month is focused on artistic talent and creativity in downtown Alpharetta. The casual event allows local artists to show off their handcrafted goods, network with other artists, pass out business cards, build up their client base, and sell an item or two. It’s a great opportunity for beginners and experienced artists. The upcoming 2017 calendar dates for this artistic event take place:
- May 20
- June 24
- July 29
- August 26
- September 23
From 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the corner of Main Street and Milton Avenue, you’ll be treated to a visual smorgasbord of artistic delights, come rain or shine. The outdoor market is a breath of fresh air as originality takes center stage with a variety of handcrafted items.
Peruse the many pieces of work or stop by an artist’s booth and watch them work their magic creating an original piece right before your eyes. You’ll see colorful artwork using oil and watercolor as well as beautifully detailed mosaic art.
Watch as the potter’s wheel is used to make unique pottery pieces or see intricate pieces by the artist dedicated to metal work. The carvings from the woodworking artists are rich in detail and the jewelry creations are elegant and stylistic.
Stop by the booth emanating the fragrant aromas of handcrafted soaps and lotions then make your way to the photographer’s booth to see thoughtful and inspiring pieces of photography.
For those with children, be sure to check the booth with handmade children’s apparel.
