On Saturday, March 15, the WaterColor Community Association will host its 9th annual Art in the Park from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in WaterColor’s Cerulean Park and Town Center.  

WaterColor, located on 30A, is the ideal backdrop for this open-air event where homeowners, guests and area locals alike are invited to spend the day exploring a wide spectrum of art, enjoying live music, socializing over a bite to eat or just relaxing in the park.

Artists of all genres will feature mediums including but not limited to: oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, charcoal, chalk, pastel and color pencil drawings, recycled art, photography, printmaking, digital art, glass art, jewelry, fabric art, custom-made furniture, mixed media, pottery, wood work and more.   

"We are extremely excited about the caliber of work that will be exhibited at this year's Art in the Park," said event manager Hillary Fosdyck of Monark Events.  "This is by far WaterColor's largest and most diverse show to-date and every year we are even more impressed with the talents of these incredible artists."  

Artists will be traveling from all over to the Southeast to showcase their work at Art in the Park, and it’s no wonder, as South Walton is quickly becoming known as a culturally relevant hotspot for events.

As a festive addition to this year’s event, local acoustic favorites, Kyle LaMonica and Dannica Lowery, will play from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Cerulean Park and WaterColor’s Town Center. Boukou Groove will perform in front of Chan's Wine World in WaterColor from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Boukou Groove’s sound intertwines New Orleans funk and soulful R&B with a jam band twist for a truly unique sound.

“Bring out your friends and family on March 15 as WaterColor welcomes in spring with this vibrant, colorful and lively event,” Fosdyck said.
