The Station Parkette in downtown St. Thomas was the place on Saturday July 14th to listen to a little live music, view some local art, and pause for a while to relax and soak up some sunshine. Art in the Park brought together ten artists in mediums from clay to paint, beads, fabric and stamps for their second event of the summer. Shugg and the Temporary Men performed and children stopped in at the free crafts centre, compliments of St. Thomas Elgin Public Art Centre, to create colourful rain-sticks.

The next Art in the Park takes place on August 11th at the Station Parkette from 11am-4pm. It’s a nice initiative by the Downtown Development Board to bring a little summertime artful ambience to downtown St. Thomas. Be sure to stop in, if you can, for the August event.
