Our Saturday, April 27 Art in the Park was a big hit. The Smythe Park locale was terrific and we were blessed with gorgeous weather, steady stream of visitors and a turnout of artists of all ages creating wonderful images.
DIHS board member Lee Ann Bain kicked things off by reminding the crowd we wee there to honor the living history represented by Daniel Island’s live oaks.
Lee Ann and Beth Bush had earlier tied ribbons and information sheets on 38 live oaks in the park…20 of which were already adopted and 18 of which are available for adoption. Here’s a look at some of their handiwork

One of the highlights of the program was thanking those who have already adopted island oaks. The project began under former President Brenda Thorn and DIHS board member Bob Sauer has recently taken on the project.
Bob gave thank you certificates to Brenda and other tree adoptors who attended Saturday’s event. Here’s a look at that.
And let’s not forget the artists who put the ART in Art in the Park. This link takes you to the work of, in order, Joyce Erb, Heather MacQueen Jones, Chris Dotson, Andrea Vavra and Jerri Pogue.
And here are some slideshows that show some of the above works in progress. Note: these links are to the DIHS Facebook page.
There was lots more including a visit from the Daniel Island Garden club, singing and story telling by Ann Caldwell and live music by guitarist Ryan Flannary
We also had fun crafts for kids including painting birdhouses and painting stones.
