Local artists gathered in Shaw Park in South Natick last Sunday to show off their pieces of work, and even to play a little music. Organized by the Natick Art Association, artists came and set up their tents from 10-3pm, giving people a chance to see just what Natick’s creative community members get up to.
Not to be limited in form, the event included woodwork, jewelry, oil paintings, and music, and while Natick Report has been unable to substantiate the harpist’s claim that she “can play anything on this,” it sure sounded like she could. Twenty-five artists were set to be at the event, and their combined creative powers certainly drew in a crowd. Many of the artists were deep in conversation as I walked around the park, but I got a good look at just about every thing that I could have wanted to see.
Shaw Park is located directly across from Bacon Free Library in South Natick, which gave the option to go look out at the dam after admiring the art (which I am frequently reminded is actually the spillway—the dam is the boring part that stops the water, not the part where it all spills over). While parking can be a bit difficult, I found myself a spot with some ease, despite the crowd at the event. If you are feeling heartbroken over having missed Art in the Park, fear not! The Natick Art Association will host another Art in the Park event on September 11.
