ART EVENT at TAGAWA GARDENS
Saturday, September 23 | 11:00am-3:00pm
Nature offers us abundant inspiration, and nothing illustrates that like the imagination of artists. As a family-owned business, we know supporting and growing locally is the best way to build community. This brand-new event is away to celebrate the intersection of art and nature! We have all the makings of a great afternoon with a community art show, live theatre performance, workshops, demos, face painting, live music, and delicious gelato! After all, you can’t spell Nature without A-R-T!
COMMUNITY ART SHOW: “PAINT BY NATURE”
How does nature inspire you? Celebrating the fusion of art and garden, Tagawa Gardens is hosting an autumn art show featuring YOUR artistry! Whether you sculpt, paint, sketch, or scribble, we want to share and display the inspiring talent of our local community. We’ll accept watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, sculpture, and mixed media works. From beginning to advanced, all skill levels and ages are welcome!
Accepting submissions through September 16. Gallery runs September 23 through October 15.
