Art for the Park 2016
November 2nd and 3rd, at Atlanta Country Club
10:30AM - 8:30PM each day
Art for the Park 2016 will take place on November 2nd and 3rd at Atlanta Country Club (500 Atlanta Country Club Drive, Marietta) to benefit McFarlane Nature Park. McFarlane Nature Park is a privately held 11 acre nature preserve in East Cobb and is open to the public. There, visitors will find original buildings that were part of this longtime working farm, including the 1941 farmhouse, in addition to fields and wooded areas and extensive native gardens cultivated and cared for by the Master Gardeners of Cobb County.
Art for the Park was established to showcase local artists across myriad disciplines with the sale of the featured art to raise vital funds for the care and maintenance of the park. The previous shows have made important projects for the park possible, including critical repairs to the roof of the farmhouse.
Organizers of the event have worked diligently to put together a show that represents many points of view and those in attendance can find arts of the highest quality and artistic integrity. This year’s event will feature a symposium with internationally recognized wood turner Matt Moulthrop. There will also be a ticketed luncheon and fashion show featuring the designs of up and coming local designer Abbey Glass the morning of November 2nd.
Information about McFarlane Nature Park is available both on Facebook (under McFarlane Nature Park) or the Cobb Land Trust website at www.cobblandtrust.org. The Cobb Land Trust is a Georgia 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable foundation.
