Art in the Park



Above, Aaliyah Parker, age 5, of South Portland, takes time to feed the ducks during the 36th annual Art in the Park show, held Aug. 8 in Mill Creek Park. Right, Sandra Drago, left, and Johanna Pulkkinen, right, both of Portland, check out the photographs in a booth. It was a firsttime experience for Drago, who marveled, “I’m amazed at some of the different art I’ve seen.” Top right, South Portland Mayor Linda Cohen interviews Monique Sakellarios of Nashua, New Hampshire, the Best-In-Show winner for her oil painting, “Summertime,” for a spot to air on South Portland Community Television. Rick Towle, South Portland’s director of parks, recreation and waterfront, estimated daylong attendance at the event at “around 5,000” — a measurable increase in foot traffic over recent years, he said.
