Art in the Park Every year we work in partnership with the City of Merritt and the Merritt and District Chamber of  Commerce to host Art in the Park event during Canada Day festivities and as of 2017 during National Indigenous Peoples Day at Rotary Park.  The event runs from 10am to 1pm and will be hosted under the Arts Council’s canopy tents and feature information about the Arts Council including ways to get involved, art demonstrations (paintings, printing making and Art Trading Cards, button or magnet making).  In addition, this event allows enables  artists to connect with each other, discuss new projects and activities or establish new partnerships. Also, it provides them with an opportunity to market themselves and their work in a highly visible venue.   Art in the Park encourages artists to come out and paint en plein air or provide interactive art demonstrations to the community. The goal of our event is to provide a forum for the community to tap into their creative spirit and learn new forms of artistic expression.
