Art in the Wilds Ranked Among Must-Attend Shows for 2018

Allegheny National Forest Visitors BureauBRADFORD, PA – February 1, 2018 – In the January 2018 issue of Sunshine Artist, readers can learn about the 12th Art in the Wilds Juried Fine Arts Show, set for June 23-24, 2018, and its high accolades as it was just named “11 Must Attend Show for Artist and Craftspeople” for 2018. The other contenders were from Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Texas, Georgia and Ohio.

Art in the Wilds Executive Director, Marilyn Blackmore, shared her excitement for this distinction stating, “We have worked for 12 years to bring a high quality outdoor exhibition to our region and we are very honored to have been chosen as one of the must-attend shows.”


“Without the help of our many volunteers, sponsors, board members, artists and visitors this distinction would not have been possible,” noted Blackmore. The festival is a year round project for the organization.


Blackmore was introduced to Sunshine Artists in 2006 by John (and Cheri) Bloomquist, master potter, educator and advocated for the arts. Since then, Art in the Wilds has worked with Sunshine Artists from its inception to promote their festival as well as being featured in their “Show Shot” photos and articles.


It was Bloomquist, who suggested the jurying process for the festival and since then Art in the Wilds has advertised with Sunshine Artists and had great success.


Visitors can take in the beautiful Evergreen Park in Kane and the 12th annual Art in the Wilds Juried Fine Arts Show on June 23-24. The festival will feature the best local and regional artists, music and a high school art exhibition.
