Make a date with your best friends and family for this exceptional fundraiser at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens, which benefits horticulture, conservation, and education projects at the Gardens!
Art in the Gardens 2015 promises a phenomenal garden party on the spectacular Mendocino Coast Saturday, August 1. The 24th annual fundraiser for Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens draws exceptional North Coast fine artists and craftspeople to the juried art show and sale. Music, art demonstrations, wine and beer tasting, and delectable foods round out the crowd-pleasing day-long event.
Taste an organic Chardonnay and tap your toes to a dance band, or sample an ale and groove to the sounds of jazz. With 12 Mendocino County wineries bringing their finest wines, in addition to five North Coast artisan craft breweries, thereâ€™s a taste for all palettes. Tasting ticket includes a keepsake glass.
Sample olives and aged balsamic vinegars, shop for new jewelry or fresh handcrafted decÃ³r for your home, seek out a new art print, a ceramic vase for cut flowers, or a wood-turned piece for form and function. Watch weavers merge multiple strands of yarn into a thin braid and marvel as a local sculptor transforms stone into art.
Meet this yearâ€™s Featured Artist, Marian DeGloria, or one of our past Featured Artists at a special booth set up to honor these guests. This year's featured artwork, a watercolor titled Succulents, is available for sale. Botanical artist DeGloria is a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists and is represented by the Artists Cooperative of Mendocino.
The family-friendly event is generously sponsored by these Mendocino Coast businesses: North Coast Brewing Company, Rossi Building Materials, KOZT The Coast FM, FloBeds, Campbell Global, Suburban Propane, Little River Inn, Mendo-Lake Credit Union, Friends of the Gardens (FOG), Thanksgiving Coffee, Harbor Ice, and Mountain Fresh Spring Water.
