We had a perfect day for our first Art in the Park for 2017 – warm, but not too hot, with not a breath of wind till a light breeze got up around lunch-time. It was held on Sunday 26 March at our new regular venue, Rondebosch Park.
Once again members from the other art societies were invited to join us and we had a lovely gathering of artists, with a wide selection of styles and subject matter, giving our customers plenty to choose from. When they weren’t busy selling their wares, the artists were busy chatting with their neighbours, making new friends and collecting tips for future paintings.
There was a sociable, Sunday atmosphere – whole families strolling through the park, with babies in prams and dogs of all shapes and sizes on leashes, toddlers dancing to the music and everyone picking their favourite painting.
The food stalls did just as well as the art stalls did, as people sat around the tables in the dappled shade, enjoying a leisurely lunch, a smoothie, or a cup of excellent coffee.
Once again, a very successful day, thanks to all the organisers and participants. See you next time!
