PHOTOS: Sights from Sunday in the City

Artists, entertainers and shoppers took over Bitzer Park this weekend as New Work City Foundation hosted its first Sunday in the City event of the year

This weekend's event brought in artists from across the spectrum for a full day of entertainment in North Canton's Bitzer Park.

Artists ranged from jewelry-makers to wine glass painters and furniture restorers.

Staci Ford of Furniture Zombie was new this year to the event, which now is in its second year. Ford brought with her several upcycled items, like music records molded into containers and old furniture that was given a new life with interesting new fabric.

"I had sold stuff on the Internet for a long time and it was really just for friends and family, and they thought I was nuts," Ford said. "And then it just snowballed into this monster."

Ford said she was pleased with how the event turned out Sunday. She had sold a few items and given away several of business cards.

Across the park, Paula Mastroianni of Expressions Beads showed her unique metal and beaded jewelry to Vicki Stanley, founder of New Work City Foundation (which hosted the event), and . The two were impressed by Mastroianni's use of metal pipes to display her jewelry.

"I thought, 'What can do this justice?' ... Oh! Plumbing!" Mastroianni said.

As with all New Work City Foundation events, money raised from Sunday in the City will be turned into a grant and go to a local business so that it may create a job.

"New Work City Foundation is honored and priviledged to represent all these artists for the North Canton community families to enjoy," Stanley said.

"We had perfect, beautiful weather. It was a great day. And I loved that all the artists were selling things — that's really important."

Artists who'd like to take part in should contact art committee chairman John Allensworth at 330-704-2657.
