On Sunday, September 19 from Noon to 4:00 p.m., Ann Arbor Farm & Garden is hosting a special Fall Garden Walk and Chelsea Painters Art Exhibit.  This fabulous event will be held on a stunning five acre, beautifully landscaped garden located at 5400 North Meadow Court, Ann Arbor (off Dixboro near Pontiac Trail).

The Chelsea Painter Art Exhibit features more than 40 artistic interpretations of the lovely gardens showcased in the 2010 Ann Arbor Garden Walk.  Styles range from realistic to abstract and were created using a variety of media including oil, watercolor, pastels, mosaic and collage. Visit the 2010 Chelsea Painters Garden Walk Album for a sampling of the paintings on display.

Weather permitting, artist Toni Stevenson will paint ‘en plein air’ and Joan Plohr will demonstrate e-Sumi technique, allowing attendees to watch as Nature and Art converge.  As renowned artist Marc Chagall said, “Great art picks up where nature ends”.
