Mitchell Park will come alive with art on January 22 for the 62nd annual Art in the Park.

Every year the Busselton Art Society show off its work for an outdoor exhibition across a few days.

Up to 300 pieces of art will be on display featuring a range of different mediums.

The artists will be up for a sweep of prizes.

There will be prizes within categories as well sponsored ones.

Along with the artwork the Busselton Woodturners Club will participate in the event as well as the Busselton Pottery Club.

There will also be a silent auction on a painting which was a collaborative effort by the society members.

People will be able to participate in a raffle where a selection of art vouchers will be on offer.

The Art in Park event is the society's biggest fundraiser for the year which allows them to run workshops and keep the club going.

The society has come out of a tough 2020 on a high with an increase in members over the last month or so.

It is a very social group of people and the society regularly holds workshops and have a gallery space with the ArtGeo precinct.
