Published: Sunday, July 7, 2013 11:04 p.m. CDT

Artist Anne Hermes of Dixon chills in her booth in front of one of her paintings Saturday at the annual Nuts About Art art show and sale at John Dixon Park. Dozens of artists displayed paintings, photos, pottery, gourds, woodwork, jewelry, ironwork, mosaics and more for the hundreds of people who strolled through the shady park. The Next Picture show puts on the show each year during the Petunia Festival.
