Hundreds of people turned out Saturday for Art in the Park. The regular event, sponsored by Saratoga Arts, featured work by dozens of artisans. Everything from oil painting, to fabric collages, to chainsaw art was on display. Here are just a few of those artists whose works were featured at the event.

Our photos were taken by Logan Hicks, a student at Saratoga Springs High School.

Catalina Arango is a painter and graphic designer from Columbia. This was her first time exhibiting during Art in the Park. Because so many of her paintings are of horses, she says, “It was suitable for me to exhibit my work here.”

At 29 years old, Rich Koonz does chainsaw crafting fulltime. “I saw someone else doing it and I thought, I could do that, and I just started doing it,” he said. When he paints his pieces, he says he uses a process called ‘dry brushing.’ “If you completely paint it, it doesn’t look like wood any more.”

Robert Gullie is from Cohoes. He specializes in hand-tinted photography.


Both Thomas Harrington and his wife are photographers. It’s their first year at Art in the Park. They live in Glens Falls.

Summer art, meanwhile, continues in Saratoga. Saratoga Arts, the sponsor of Art in the Park, is now looking for artists for its 2013 Juried Exhibition.

This year’s exhibition is titled “Saratoga 150: Then, Now and Beyond.” It will be on view at the Saratoga Arts Gallery at 320 Broadway from August 3 to September 28.

Interested artists can contact Saratoga Arts for more information.
