Spring Has Arrived at Froggwell Garden

The frogs are roaring. Osprey and swallows have been sighted and the rhododendrons are starting to bloom. You know what that means! Time to wake up the blog from its winter slumber and get back to thinking about art and gardens.

The garden is waiting…..

There will be three opportunities to visit Froggwell Garden this year, two of them involve  artwork other than (but including) the garden.

The first of these arrives on Memorial Day Weekend, when three landscape painters stage their Fresh Landscapes Exhibition. Painters Rebecca Collins, Alicia Elliot, and Teresa Saia take center stage with a wonderful collection of new works (all available for purchase, of course!) May 26-29, 2017. We’ll have more information as well as images of some of the paintings soon.

This is a time when the garden is not usually open to the public, and a chance to see things that aren’t in bloom during the usual art show time in August. Things like tree peonies! Huzzah!

Through this passage, lies magic….

Hard on the heels of the Fresh Landscape show, comes the Whidbey Island Garden Tour on Saturday June 17th. This is a great opportunity to see yet another phase of the garden, along with some other wonderful gardens on Whidbey Island.

Last, but hardly least, another Forgers at Froggwell comes your way August 4th, 5th, and 6th. Is a trip to the Louvre out of your budget’s limits this year? We have about 30 artists participating in this year’s show! Why go to Europe and contemplate art theft when you can have an excellent replica for a mere fraction of what your bail would be?

Frohwerk, sargent

Reading, after John Singer Sargent, by Jennifer Frohwerk.

And who wouldn’t want a Sargent?

Well, that’s all for now, but stay tuned. I’ll be back every week or so, with more news about the artists that show at Froggwell, art on Whidbey Island, and anything else that pops into my head!

In the meantime, hop over to the Rob Schouten Gallery’s GoFundMe project page, to learn about this beloved gallery’s impending move to Langley from Greenbank Farm!

It’s spring!
Go Outside.
