Paint in the Park set for Saturday
MARLOW – Imagine standing in the dew-covered grass as the unmistakable Oklahoma morning breeze wisps around you. Paint brush in hand, the melodic sounds of nature surround you as you peer into a blank canvas just waiting to impart unto it your masterpiece.
This will be the scene at 9 a.m. Saturday at Marlow’s Redbud Park as the Chisholm Trail Art Council hosts its second annual Paint in the Park contest. Artists and onlookers alike are welcome to take in all the nature and artistry Redbud Park has to offer. Artists of all ages are expected to flock to the pristine park.
“We’re seeing a revitalization of the arts in our community,” CTAC Executive Director Darcy Reaves said. “Events like this help stoke that revitalization. It gives these artists an opportunity to get out and do the things they are passionate about. And events like this enable the community to get out and enjoy nature and local artists.”
