Milton Art-in-the-Park is an opportunity for artists from Halton and surrounding areas to showcase their work. Ranging from acrylic and oil painting to sculpture and jewelry, event goers are sure to find something to pique their interest.
Art-in-the-Park was held on Sunday August 21, 2016 Country Heritage Park. The event also had washroom facilities and food vendors on site so it made for a perfect day at the park!
Some of the show’s artists are featured below to give you an idea of what to expect next year!
