Third Annual Artz and Gardenz Studio Tour, May 11-12, 2019
10am-5pm each day www.artzandgardenz.com
A self guided driving tour of six artists' studios and one lavender garden through the countryside surrounding Saugatuck/Douglas, Fennville and Hamilton on the western Michigan shoreline.
Come celebrate spring and the creative spirit! I'll be demonstrating on the wheel during both days and you are welcome to stroll through our yard and gardens, including up on the roof of our underground home! Check out our straw bale garden up there. Light snacks and a beverage will be provided.
Special Events this year include our “Bonsai for Beginners” show and sale in the back garden. Lee VerSchure of Westview Farms will be on hand to answer all you questions about growing and enjoying these “living sculptures”. If you want to get clay on your hands, you can take part in my interactive art project…creating a sculpture for display at next year’s tour!
Visiting artists Mike Van Houzen (carved songbirds) and Anna Wooden (paintings) will offer their amazing work for sale, and guest professional growers WestView Farms (perennials and herbs) and Landis Zylman of Dreamhouse Gardens Orchids will be on hand to share their work and passion. Bring Mom and the kids and make it a fun and artful weekend!
