Planning is underway for Art in the Garden 2015

Hello to our artist friends! Plans are now under way for the 3rd Annual Art Show & Sale at the George Pegg Botanic Garden! 

The date is Father’s Day, Sunday, June 21, 2015As we confirm more details we will update this website. Our goal is to increase the number of artists at the show.  If you know other artists who would like to participate please spread the word!

The 2014 Art Show and Sale was great success.  Set up around the Garden, more than 20 artists showcased their talent. Our musical friends entertained visitors through the whole day.  We were pleased with the number of entries in the first Youth Art Competition. Visitors and vendors loved the spectacular weather. 

We plan to add a few more interesting pieces to the 2015 Art Show. We hope you will save the date and plan to be a part of this event. If you would like to register or need more information contact Hilde Keller at: hildekeller@gmail.com or Lorraine Taylor at 1-866-880-5722.
