Art in the Park returned to WaterColor on March 18 for the 12th year, and this year was the biggest ever with more than 80 artists participating from around the Southeast.

The event was open to the public and many art lovers enjoyed the event as they browsed while listening to live music and checked out the art, jewelry, handbags, and novelties that were all handmade.

The hanging artwork was from all mediums: oil, acrylic, watercolors, charcoal, chalk, pastel, pencil, photography, printmaking and digital, with good representation of glass work, jewelry, fabric art, pottery, woodwork, knives and fashion as well.

The large selection of art and beautiful weather drew many out on Saturday.

"We did well," said Dana Maher, who was handling her husband's tent. Her husband is Destin artist John Maher, who paints with oils.
