Art in the Park

Art in the Park 2013

Artists are invited to participate in the second Art in the Park and Jazz Fest event on Saturday, September 7 at Wilmer Park, a beautiful location on the Chester River in Chestertown.   RiverArts and the Garfield Center for the Arts have teamed up again to sponsor this exciting fusion between the visual and performing arts.  Artist vendors will have free admission to the Jazz Fest, an exciting all day festival with jazz musicians from all over the country performing.  Twenty to thirty minute breaks between performers provide over two hours of additional time to browse and buy art.

Twelve by twelve foot spaces can be rented for $75 if you are a member of RiverArts or for $100 if you are not.  If you would like to participate this year, please email Lani Seikaly at  to reserve your space and mail your check to RiverArts at 315 High Street,  Suite 106, Chestertown, MD 21620 or call RiverArts at 410 778 6300 to pay with a credit card.

Acclaimed jazz pianist Cyrus Chestnut and much-loved local jazz and blues vocalist Sue Matthews will headline the 2013 Chestertown Jazz Festival on the waterfront.  A recent press release provided this additional information.
