10am to 5pm Free. Art In The Park ll. Shadow Bay Park is conveniently located near the corner of Turkey Lake Rd and Conroy Rd, less than 2 miles down the street from Universal Studios. You are invited to another Art In The Park event where artists can come together to create, share good vibes and ideas picnic style while relaxing in a peaceful park setting! There are no specific agendas or expectations on what you may wish to create and all modalities are welcomed... drawing, painting, writing, sculpting, crafting, photography, etc. If anyone would like to work on a communal mural that's great too! You can bring blankets or chairs for your seating comfort along with a picnic basket or cooler along with any supplies you may need. I usually listen to Pandora on my little speaker but anyone interested in playing gentle acoustic music with their instruments is fine. Friends are also welcomed to join you. For those with children, there's a jungle gym playground located near the rest rooms.
This is a free event with ample free parking available. Bathrooms are also on the premises. There are trash receptacles throughout the park so please leave the area as tidy as you found it. Shadow Bay Park is conveniently located near the corner of Turkey Lake Rd and Conroy Rd, less than 2 miles down the street from Universal Studios. Let's hope for great weather but in the event of rain, the event will be rescheduled.

With eight decades of life experiences to draw upon for inspiration, Grady Kimsey enjoys critical and popular success as a sculptor, potter, painter and instructor. He earned his B.A. in fine arts from the University of Tennessee in 1950, and then completed his master's in education from Rollins College in Winter Park in 1969.
