More than 50 exhibitors put their handwork on display at John Dixon Park on Saturday for the Next Picture Show’s Nuts About Art event, part of the Petunia Festival’s weekend festivities. Just about every kind of medium under the sun was on display: paint, metal, pottery, clay, and even some gourds, to name just a few. The event also featured art demos, music and food. The Petunia Festival wrapped up Sunday, but there was still plenty to do during the celebration of all things Dixon. Among the events: Pancakes in the Park, a talent show, music, and, of course, the parade – all capped off by the Petunia Fest pyrotechnics.
