Fall is almost here!

Together the Thornapple Arts Council and Historic Charlton Park are proud to host the juried 3rd Annual Barry County Artists Exhibition to be on display at Historic Charlton Park.The exhibit will be on display in the Irving D. Charlton Memorial Museum October 13 – December 10, 2017 and the Park will also participate in Arts and Eats, October 20 - 21, 2017. A few of the show's artist's may be on site for Arts and Eats to talk about their pieces and sell additional work. 

Arts and Eats invites people to discover rural areas, forests, and towns by exploring back roads and out of the way places. Visit with local artisans in their studios, see working farms featuring specialty food crops, fiber, and heritage animals. Should hunger strike, stop in one of the local gems that serve food made with ingredients from area farms and producers. Arts and Eats raises awareness and appreciation of the region's human and natural resources. To learn more about Arts and Eats, visit their website.
