Art in the Park

Regional Artist’s Exhibition
Sponsored by the Connecticut River Artisan Group

August 27, 2016

This annual art show is an opportunity for experienced and emerging visual artists and artisans residing in the Great North Woods region to come share their talents in the recreation park in Canaan, VT.  It is held in conjunction with the Moose Festival and individuals are awarded prizes based on votes received from people attending the exhibit.

The event is sponsored by the Connecticut River Artisan Group (CRAG). CRAG is a “grass roots” organization consisting of visual artists and artisans from the Great North Woods region. The group promotes the arts and provides logistical and moral support to new and established artisans in the region.
