Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 9, 2008 for the 17th Annual Art in the Gardens from 10 am to 5 pm. This summer, we will be hosting our 17th annual Art in the Gardens
fundraiser — an event hailed as the best garden party on California’s North Coast. Imagine a beautiful summer’s day with over 60 talented artists
, more than a dozen of the finest Mendocino County wineries
, delicious food and local culinary treats, and fabulous musicians all coming together to create a dynamic event right in the heart of the Botanical Gardens.
Art in the Gardens is held in the Perennial, Heather, and Dahlia Gardens
— when these horticultural displays are at their peak — a backdrop that dazzles and delights the senses with color and fragrance. Art in the Gardens highlights
include: wine tasting, a wide variety of fine art and crafts including beautiful, handcrafted furniture available for purchase. Artists in Action
will be demonstrating their techniques, from weaving to woodworking. The Silent Auction area will offer unique pieces donated by the artists, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Gardens. Wine tasting from over a dozen of Mendocino County’s best wineries will be available with the purchase of an event wine glass. Gourmet picnic baskets featuring the finest local food and wine will be available for purchase, as well as delicious food from select vendors. Live music will be offered on three different stages, and performances by Opera Fresca will add to the ambiance and charm of this delightful summer’s day! Tickets are $20 and available at the door on the day of the event. For more information:
