Art in the Garden
Submitted By Sachie Johns
The Fremont Art Association (FAA) and Regan's Nursery have once again teamed up for "Art in the Garden" show. The colorful nursery will be the garden setting where the artists will be creating, exhibiting and selling original paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolor, pottery, ceramics, mosaics, unique glass wind chimes, fused glass and fine jewelry, all set among a profusion of colorful blossoms throughout the nursery. The show will feature a wide variety of art and demonstrations - observers are welcome to ask questions.
For the second year, there will be a silent auction of unique hand-painted, indoor-outdoor banners (18" x 28" long) created by local artists with profits going to the local Cultural Arts in the Schools program, managed by the Fremont Cultural Arts Council. The banners will be on display at the nursery the month of June prior to and during the two days of the sale. The profit will support the visual arts in our local schools and add a colorful addition to any home. Bids can be made in the Regan's sales office. The auction will run until the end of the art show, Sunday, June 27 and the winning bidder of each banner will be notified. This fund-raiser was very successful last year and all the banners were sold and well-received.
Music will be provided by local musician, Don Cardoza whose lively piano music will be heard throughout the nursery, from 1 to 4 p.m. each day.
Award-winning photographer, Ralph Cooksey-Talbott will provide a free one-hour demonstration on Saturday, June 25. He will show you how to take the best photographs of flowers and answer any questions about photography. Bring your digital camera and meet him at the entrance to the nursery at 12 noon.
