The 20th Annual “In The Park With Art,” one of South Florida’s more popular yearly art events, returns to Palmetto Bay on Saturday, Oct. 30, and Sunday, Oct. 31, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Presented by the Cultural Council, the show will take place at the Palmetto Bay Village Center, located on Old Cutler Road at SW 184th Street. It’s the second year at that location, the event moving there in 2009 for better access, accommodations and parking. As always, admission is free.

Besides art in a variety of media–paintings, prints, sculpture, glass, fine gold and silver jewelry, fine pottery and mixed media–visitors will have a chance to talk with the artists, enjoy live music and delicious food from a number of vendors.

The juried and judged fine art and fine crafts show, conducted in the open air each fall, features works by more than 100 local and national artists. It also offers educational activities for children and there’s a raffle booth with prizes donated by local sponsors of the event.

As before, proceeds from the art show are used to benefit the scholarship fund established by the Cultural Council to provide tuition assistance to talented students entering Florida colleges and universities to major in art and music.

The show’s coordinator is Yolly Buchmann, a veteran of the event and of the Cultural Council, and the artist coordinators are Anna Cabral and Cynthia Desmond.
