Art in the Park calls for artists



BAR HARBOR — The 67th annual Art in the Park show will take place June 17 and 18. Artists can submit their applications for booth space to the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce.

The beauty of Bar Harbor was first captured on canvas in the 1800s by noted American painters. “The tradition of fine art in Bar Harbor goes back more than a century,” said Martha Searchfield, the chamber’s executive director. “As one of the longest-running art shows in Bar Harbor, we are pleased to continue this tradition with another exceptional display of art in the heart of our community.”

Art in the Park brings together more than 30 artists to display and sell their original paintings and photographs on Bar Harbor’s Village Green. From across Maine and New England, these artists represent a diverse range of styles and mediums in the field of painting and photography.

Any artist seeking to participate for the first time is required to submit examples of their work along with an application and a nonrefundable application fee no later than March 24. Returning artists should submit their applications before April 3.
