Art in the Park is two days of fine art in Saratoga Springs' historic downtown Congress Park, curated and presented by Saratoga Arts. Each exhibition features up to seventy artists from the greater Saratoga and Capital regions, displaying their original two- and three-dimensional creations and personally-designed and crafted functional art in a beautiful park setting. Artists will display and be on hand to discuss their drawing, painting, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, photography, print-making, and work in other media.  This year's event will include Best In Show prizes, local music, great food and a Kidz Art Zone!
