  • High standard: Since the last Art-in-the-Park, we have been looking at how to raise the standard of the art displayed, so that visitors to the coming AITP will be pleased and will want to buy more of the art on display. A group of judges (not including any artists that will be displaying) will be reviewing the submissions from each artist. The judges will select only those of high enough standard.
