You’ve watched your children and grandchildren playing with watercolor, but have you watched an artist work with alcohol inks?
Patricia Baldwin, an artist from Dixon, Ill., will be creating a work of art on ordinary glazed tiles to create a mural for the city of Highland. You’ll be able to watch her create during Art in the Park on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 10 and 11 at Lindendale Park in Highland. The Highland Arts Council will donate the finished work to a prominent location in the City of Highland.
The creation of this commissioned artwork is made possible and partly funded by the Monsanto Rural Community Arts Program through the Arts & Education Council of St. Louis. The Highland Arts Council is grateful to them for honoring us with this grant.
Dueling Desserts, an artistic presentation of food, will also show art in action. Participants in this year’s Dueling Desserts are Pat Jacoby from Patty-Cakes in Highland; Jenny Cleveland from Cleveland-Heath in Edwardsville; Leslie Gillette from Planter’s House, TCM Southern Sweets in St. Louis; and Martin Lopez representing ChefMartin.net in St. Louis. Desserts will be on display. You can vote for your favorite and purchase samples of their work by placing money in your favorite’s cash jar. All proceeds will be donated to the Highland Area Christian Service Ministry (HACSM) Food Pantry.
Art in the Park hours on Saturday, Oct. 10 are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Sunday, Oct. 11, hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Come enjoy the fall beauty at the Lindendale Park. It’s family fun.
