Artists in the Park event is Saturday, Aug. 31, at Sorosis Park.
SOROSIS PARK will be the site of the Art in the Park Festival Saturday, Aug. 31. Northern Wasco County Parks and Recreation is planning to make the event an annual affair open to local artists of all ages. The event will begin Saturday morning at 10 a.m. and continue until 5 p.m. Young artists from the Art Camp will be displaying their art pieces and newly learned techniques. For a fee, artist vendors can set up a 10-by-10-foot display. In addition to art on display and for sale, the event will include music, family activities and a special raffle. Local artist and author Denaé Manion will provide a personalized piece for the raffle winner, who will get to decide medium, size and topic. Westwind Frame and Gallery has donated framing for the piece. For more information, contact Parks and Rec at 541-296-9533.
