Artists in the Garden

Submitted By Mavis Brown

The Fremont Art Association and Regan's Nursery are presenting two days of "Artists in the Garden" on June 23 and June 24. This 7th anniversary event features over twenty- two artists who will be showing and selling their work each day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Regan's Nursery in Fremont. In this lovely garden setting artists can answer your questions as they demonstrate their skills. You will find a wide variety of reasonably priced art for gifts or to enhance your home, such as fused glass pieces and glass wind chimes; original paintings in oil, watercolor, and pastel; also ceramic sculpture and pottery; mosaics; and decorative gourds. Crafted jewelry as well as handmade paper books, and photography will be nestled among colorful blossoms, trees, and water fountains. Local keyboard musician and artist, Don Cardoza, will provide live music each day.

This year we are pleased to also feature the work of two guest Afghan artists, who now live in Fremont. Abduhl-Shokoor Khusrawy graduated from the Department of Arts and Literature at Kabul University and paints primarily in oil. Abduhl-Manan Hamdard renders unique wood burned portraits and scenes from his homeland. Their work will be on exhibit both days and they would love to meet more Tri-City residents.

Stroll the beautiful Regan's Nursery grounds while absorbing the varied work of local artists. Watch artists as they work, meet new friends, help support the local arts, buy some beautiful plants for your yard and an original piece of art for your home. It's a great way to spend a sunny afternoon!

The annual "Artists in the Garden" is a collaboration between the Fremont Art Association and Regan's Nursery. Admission is free. For further information about the weekend, please call Regan's Nursery at (510) 797-3222 or visit the Fremont Art Association website at www.fremontartassociation.org.
