Artists' Reception Sunday October 12, 2008, 2- 5pm
This show and sale will feature the works of members, depicting artwork based on "The Natural World." All works will be original, hand-applied artwork of various mediums, and most will be available for purchase. Part of the proceeds will support Blandy and their various programs. The show will coincide with Blandy's ArborFest, which occurs on October 11 and 12 from 10am- 4:30pm.
Taken from their website: "Held each Columbus Day Weekend, ArborFest is the Arboretum’s fall festival and plant sale. Hours are 10 to 4:30 both Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine. In addition to a selection of plants divided or propagated from the Arboretum grounds, ArborFest includes a variety of plants for sale by carefully selected high-quality vendors. Activities include scarecrow making and nature walks for kids as well as guided Arboretum walks, bird walks, and hay rides."
Some of the members of the Blandy Sketch Group will be at the event, painting "en plein aire." Come out and see the spectacular grounds of the Arboretum, as well as observing Artists at work!
