Agawam Park in Southampton will serve home to a unique yearly outdoor fine art show, Art in the Park, presented by the Southampton Artists Association (SAA). The 19th Annual Art in the Park will take place from Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“There truly is something for everyone at this fine art show. It is a great time to come to the Village, stroll in our park and check out the Village restaurants,” SAA Board member Danielle Leef explained.
The exhibition will highlight works from more than 40 artists, whose work ranges from paintings on oil to acrylic to watercolors to pastels to photography, which will be available on metal, canvas, and framed work along with matted prints.
