2011 - Art in the Garden
Three Shutterbugs (Brenda Fayard, Johnnie Ann Gaskill, and Sherry Kunde) participated in the 4th annual “Art in the Garden,” held at the University of Georgia Research and Education Garden, located on West Ellis Road in Griffin. Although it was unseasonably cool and rather windy that day, the event was very enjoyable. The hostesses (UGA Griffin Campus Master Gardeners) served a delicious lunch and gave each participant a potted plant, as they’ve done each year. Following the luncheon, the artists headed back to the area where they had set up a display of their work. Throughout the afternoon, visitors stopped by each exhibit to chat, and artists had opportunity to meet and greet one another. All the while, the beautiful music performed by The Lonesome Road Folk Singers wafted through the air, inspiring visitors and artists to hum/sing along while strolling along garden paths and viewing the lovely plants, sculptures, structures, and water features. Admission was free.
