  1. Artists In Action 2019

    February 1, 2019 - February 26, 2019 @ Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center

    For a few special weeks, Annmarie’s spectacular Main Gallery is transformed into artist studios, where visitors will have the opportunity to observe and interact with artists as they work. This exciting time at the Garden provides a unique retreat and experimental space for artists to develop new works, display and sell their work, to network with other artists, and to share their creative process. Over twenty artists working in a variety of mediums are scheduled to participate over the course of the event. Visitors will be able to watch, learn, ask questions, and in some cases, become engaged in an art project. The participating artists are encouraged to create a hands-on experience for guests, which may include an invitation to experiment with materials and/or process, or collaboration on an idea or design. Artists in Action is a wonderful opportunity to get an up close look at the working and creative process of an artist.

  3. Calvert Stewards: Screech Owl Care and Training
