Art in the Park
Glynn Visual Arts
Postell Park, in the Pier Village
Deadline: April 1
Glynn Visual Arts presents the 22nd Annal Spring Art in the Park on St. Simons Island. Fine arts and quality crafts are featured in this small-town ocean-side setting.
The island is one of four barrier islands known as the "Golden Isles" on the Georgia coast, midway between Savannah, GA and Jacksonville, FL, including Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island, and Jekyll Island. The festival occurs during a time of year when many visitors from throughout the country are in town to enjoy spring break vacation.
The jury brings in a well-balanced selection of about 70 art professionals representing 2D and 3D media. The festival's location, Postell Park, was redesigned a few years ago and laid out specifically for events like this. The unique one-square-block setting is located under a canopy of live oak trees, with the St. Simons Island Lighthouse and Atlantic Ocean only a few hundred yards away.
Background music, a children's hands
-on art area, and food vendors add to the ambiance, as do the Pier Village restaurants and shops, which are just down the block.
Advertising is done through radio and newspapers, as well as tourism guides,billboards and signs throughout the community, Constant Contact, various websites, and social media. Surveys from previous festivals consistently praise our staff and volunteers for their hospitality.
What we hear:
- "The organizers do everything right and I love this show."
- A local resident commented: "I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the festival this past weekend. I went to the event "just to look", but the art was so impressive, I ended up buying several things.
