GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Art in the Park returned to Grand Island for another year bringing tons of artwork out to Stolley Park for people to enjoy.

From 9 a.m. until about four on Sunday, there were about 40 artists displaying their best work including some people from the Pioneers Quilters Guild.

Anita Polansky had some of her quilts on display and she said one of them took almost a year to complete.

“This was actually a quilt where I belonged to a small group within the guild and we exchanged blocks and so once we got all of our blocks, it was up to us on how we wanted to design and put it together,” Polansky said.

She learned how to sew from her mother and has been in love with it ever since.

“I started by making clothes for my barbie dolls and then my mom sewed clothes for us kids and I just decided one of these days I wanted to start sewing,” Polansky told Local4 News.

Polansky’s been coming to Art in the Park for many years and loves sharing her passion for sewing with the community.

“I enjoy sitting out here,” Polansky said. “I enjoy the people and unless it’s raining, today turned out to be beautiful. I was a little concerned at first but today turned out to be beautiful.”
