Art in the Park 2021

September 11 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

ROCKFORD, MICHIGAN (August 13, 2021) — The Rogue River Artists Association (RRAA) hosts Art in the Park again this September. This juried art show is Saturday, September 11 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Garden Club Park next to the Rockford Dam. Admission is free.


“We are so thrilled to be putting on the show again this year after having to cancel because of COVID-19 last year,” said Paul Pate, president of the Rogue River Artists Association. “The event has always been a community favorite because it features a wide variety of mediums and the opportunity to meet and talk to the makers.”


Art in the Park will feature over 50 Michigan artists showing a variety of art for sale including jewelry, pottery, paintings, photography, pastels, woodwork, home décor, leather work, fiber arts and sculpture.


“We’ll have a great mix of returning favorites as well as some artists who are new to Art in the Park. What’s really great is you’re always going to see new art because artists are always creating new pieces and changing up their style and designs especially after the pandemic,” said Pate. “Plus, many have won awards in their categories including ceramist Claire Gill, jewelry designer Amy Johnson, painter Darlene Podpolucki and photographer Kris Brown.
