Set beneath the majestic oaks at Cadillac Square Park on Dauphin Island, displays will be brimming with art and gift ideas on November 20th as artists from across the upper Gulf Coast converge on the scenic island for the first ever “Holiday Art Fest in the Park”.
More than forty artists are scheduled to show at the juried event with $5,000 in awards to be presented. Local island artists Dena McKee and Lawrence Trotter will be among those to show their works along with others such as New Orleans artist Martin Welch and Joe Sheffield of Daphne.
Featured categories include painting, pottery, jewelry, photography, sculpture, graphics and drawings.
Santa will also be viewing the art throughout the day, so bring the kids for a holiday meet and greet with the Jolly Old Elf himself.
Sponsored by the Dauphin Island Chamber of Commerce, the “Holiday Art Fest in the Park” will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at historic Cadillac Square Park on Saturday, November 20.
Dauphin Island is just 33 miles south of Mobile at the mouth of Mobile Bay. For more information visit dauphinislandcoc.com or call Kathryn Carver at 251-861-2415.
