How The Art in The Garden outdoor Art show and Art Sale went

On Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16th, the historic George Pegg Botanic Garden hosted the 7th annual Outdoor Art in the Garden Show and Sale. It was a day full of sunshine and warm weather and the event went off without a hitch. The lovely weather helped create an atmosphere that encouraged attendees to peruse vendor tents at a leisurely pace. This was the perfect setting for visitors to learn about the artists’ craft. Phenomenal live music was provided by the Joe Saumer Big Band, the Magic Lamp Singers, and Lester Jodzio. Attendees could be seen bopping their heads along with the music at any given moment. Children at the event were kept occupied at the craft corner and artist Dave Hogg let some young artists try out his sculpting tools. Four legged friends also enthusiastically explored the property. The George Pegg Botanic Garden would like to thank all the volunteers who made this event possible, the musicians who knocked our socks off, the artists whose skill blew us away, and the attendees who made the event worthwhile. Four special events are planned for July. High Heat Composting with Dawn Boileau of Sunrise Gardens on Wednesday, July 3, 6:00pm-8:00pm. Join Artist Rayma Peterson on Sunday, July 14 for An Introduction to Botanical Art, from 10:00am-2:00pm.
