Arts & Humanities Bainbridge, in partnership with The SoundArts Project, presents Arts In The Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 2. The event will feature local and regional artists painting, drawing, or sketching in a public plein air environment and will generate funds for the arts community on Bainbridge Island.
Artists will volunteer their creative abilities, producing one or more pieces during a four-hour period on the lawn at Waterfront Park. You'll marvel as works of art take shape before your eyes! The newly created pieces will be offered at a silent auction at Summer Showcase at BIMA from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. the same evening (https://facebook.com/events/269482050182972/). All auction proceeds will benefit AHB’s Individual Artist Fund, which empowers local artists with the means to pursue their passions.
Arts In The Park will also feature an art sale, Flash Portraits, chalk drawing, live music, a wine and beer garden, and local food selections, all in the pleasant surroundings of Waterfront Park. The event is part of this year’s “Celebrate Bainbridge” festivities. Sponsored by the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce, Bainbridge Island Rotary Club, City of Bainbridge Island, and Bainbridge Island Downtown Association, “Celebrate Bainbridge” will be an event-packed family weekend that kicks off with the Rotary Auction on July 1 and culminates in the Grand Old Fourth.
