Meet the Artist Reception

NOW ON: Saturday, 

MARCH 23rd (7-9 pm)

Don’t miss the opportunity to stroll along a the over 70' of painted blooms of my 'english garden' and enjoy the flowers eager to ‘bloom away’. A MUST STOP while making the ‘rounds’ during the area metro spring flower shows and expos!

This is a great opportunity for those of you who love flowers and all things spring, but are sensitive to the fragrant aromas. Enjoy the vibrant visuals, chirping song birds and engaging textures without the worry or concern of the possible 'assault; to your sense of smell.


I recently ‘discovered’ the talents of local glass artisian Geralyn Thelen. Her glass work is stunning, beautifully hand crafted and a wonderful addition to any garden party!
