About 40 local artists are gathering again this August for Sunday Afternoon in the Park.  Sunday, August 26 from 1 – 6 pm, Mint Hill residents are invited to join local painters, woodcarvers, textile artists, and more to celebrate local art and have a good time at the Park on Wilgrove.  Admission is free.

The first Sunday Afternoon was in 2005.

“At the time Mint Hill Arts did not exist and it was an opportunity to provide our local artists with a chance to display and sell their work,” said event organizer, Tina Ross.

The event grew out of an Arts and Science Council survey.  It’s another family-friendly event for the community.

A stage will be set up for a music line up, which includes Marnie Gallagher and Keven Linscheid at 1 pm, Noel Friedline at 2 pm, and Spotlight Academy, a performing arts group offering a variety of performances at 4 pm.
