Arts In The Park is back for the 15th year on Saturday, September 17, 2022, 10 am to 4 pm, at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Park.  Application Deadline is September 3.

Arts In The Park, “Art In The Heart of Hamblen County,” is a one-day celebration of visual arts—two-dimensional fine art, fine quality crafts, artistic photography, and sculpture. Applications from artists and crafters will be accepted through September 3.

Arts In the Park is an event for Morristown Art Association Member artists and area local visual artists, artisans, and crafters, to showcase, display, sell, and demonstrate fine arts and crafts. The event will also feature exciting live performances, great food and refreshments, demonstrations, an art walk, “Try Your Hand At Art,” and children’s activities will add to the festival’s appeal.

At Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park, this 15th Arts In The Park event will draw visitors and patrons from throughout east Tennessee and the surrounding area.  Arts In The Park is an annual event of the Morristown Art Association, Morristown Parks and Recreation, and Rose Center Council For The Arts.  Entry to the event is FREE.

Arts In The Park is a juried event. Every applying artist is juried. Work should exhibit excellence in technique and concept and show imagination and the mark of individuality. All work must be original to and created by the exhibitor. Work other than that of the applying artist is not accepted. The jury committee reserves the right to eliminate any item or booth that does not meet these criteria.

Artists, crafters, and performers will be announced prior to the event. The application for participating is available on the Morristown Art Association website at www.morristownart.org.
