The public is invited and admission is free, with free parking available in the Wabash Landing parking garage for those attending the fair. The artists will be on hand to talk about their art; some will demonstrate their work.

Purdue University Galleries will bring its ArtCart, offering free, hands-on art activities to those attending.

“This fair showcases the unique creativity and diverse talents of artists from this area, and gives residents and visitors an opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind artwork,” said Beverly Shaw, Art on the Wabash committee chair. “It’s also inspiring and interesting to browse the art and enjoy a day in the park.”

Artists from a 15-county area were invited to apply for the fair. Those who will participate were chosen in a juried process by Indiana artist Kathleen Dugan of Noblesville, an assistant professor of art and design at Anderson University. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Indiana University’s School of Fine Arts and master’s of fine arts from Yale University.

The 4th annual Art on the Wabash will be held at West Lafayette’s Tapawingo Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, September 20, 2009.
