Artists and those in related fields may gain inspiration from attending galleries, fashion shows or other events that support creative thought. Photographers, fashion designers and painters may benefit from being informed as to current trends in the arts.

In an effort to promote designers and artists, the Highland Arts Council is holding its seventh annual Art in the Park event. The two-day exhibit will feature works for sale by over 70 professional artists and will be held this October in Highland, Illinois.

Art in the Park is free and open to the public, and will feature original works in a wide range of mediums, including watercolor, oil and acrylic, clay, glass, drawing and pastels, fabric and fiber, wood, sculpture, photography, jewelry, graphics and printmaking as well as mixed media. Artwork will be exhibited and offered for sale in outdoor booths.

"We attract talented artists from the Metro East and St. Louis and as far away as Oregon and the East Coast," said Lynnette Schuepbach, event chairperson and vice president of the Highland Art Council. "Art lovers will find one-of-a-kind pieces in a wide range of prices."

Throughout the event, glass bead makers, plein air painters and a wire sculptor will be holding demonstrations at their booths. In addition, two local muralists will be creating a mural on site, which will be displayed on the exterior of a public building in Highland upon completion.
