— The Naples Art Association closed out the 54th season of Art in the Park on Saturday as more than forty artists displayed their works along Park Street in Naples.

A constant flow of art lovers passed by the tents talking with the artists and watching demonstrations along the way.

Glass artist Katherine French conducted lampwork bead-making demonstrations throughout the day and all beads made were donated to "Beads of Courage," a program that supports children coping with serious illness.

According to Naples Art Association Marketing & Public Relations Manager Sara Dewberry, the Art in the Park season was successful and the artists are grateful to the community for supporting them by attending the shows.

The monthly event is held in front of the von Liebig Art Center on the first Saturday of the month from November through April and admission is free.
