Sustainable Claremont Garden Club celebrates gardens with art auction
Sustainable Claremont Garden Club will be holding its first annual silent art auction, titled “Garden Inspirations,” at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden’s Grow Native Nursery sales pavilion from Wednesday, May 15 to Saturday, June 1, the last day the nursery is open when plants will be discounted.
Local artists are donating garden-inspired works, including paintings and sculptures, garden ceramics, antique glass bird feeders, and an artistically painted garden chair. A notebook with photos and descriptions of the pieces and bid sheets on each will be located in the sales pavilion for 2 weeks prior to June 1. On June 1 from 3 to 5 p.m., there will be a social reception in the sales pavilion. The highest bidders will be announced at 4:30 p.m.
Proceeds from the event will go toward continuing the Garden Club’s mission of providing education in all aspects of gardening. Artists interested in donating garden related items to the event may contact Sue Schenk at 621-6381. For information on Sustainable Claremont, visit http://www.sustainableclaremont.org/.
