Grand Lake area artists and artisans will be on display along with the beautiful azaleas during Lendonwood Gardens’ Art in the Garden exhibit and sale on Saturday, May 3, at the botanical garden in Grove. A wide range of mediums will be represented, from jewelry-making to photography to fine arts.
The show will open at 9 a.m. and end at about 3 p.m. Art in the Garden is free and open to the public.
“It’s always a perfect way to blend nature and art, with Lendonwood’s beautiful flowers serving as the backdrop for the work of artists and artisans,” said Cindy Reynolds, Lendonwood board member who is coordinating the event. “Artists can sell or just display their works, for the enjoyment of our visitors.”
All items on display are hand-made by area artists. “We are happy to support our local artists by offering a venue for their work,” said Reynolds.
Student artists from Grove High School also will be showing off their artworks in the American Backyard Garden, located near the Japanese Pavilion.
During the day, Mazzio’s of Grove will have a booth to sell pizza-by-the-slice and beverages, Reynolds said. Kettle-corn also will be for sale by another vendor.
“We invite everyone to come out and enjoy the talents on display at Art in the Garden,” Reynolds said. “In addition to the artworks, it’s also a wonderful time to see spring flowers on full display at Lendonwood.”
