Mendocino Art in the Gardens

Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens is excited to present our 25th Anniversary Art in Gardens. This premier juried event on the spectacular Mendocino Coast showcases fine art in many different media. Join us in a celebration of creative expression, gorgeous gardens, music, beer, wine, and food attracts more than 1,500 guests each year. Imagine spending a day strolling through our beautiful garden, meeting California artists while viewing a multitude of art on display and for sale, sipping regional wines and craft beers, listening to wonderful music, and tasting the freshest culinary creations from around Mendocino County.  Featured artist will be the internationally renowned sculptor, John Fisher.

Set amidst the spectacular background of summer floral displays at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens, the 25th anniversary of Art in the Gardens (AIG) is fast approaching. The day-long juried fine art event will be held on Saturday, August 5 from 11AM to 5PM.

This year’s Featured Artist is internationally acclaimed sculptor John Fisher. After 20 years in Italy, he has established his studio in Northern California with his wife—and past AIG featured artist—Sandy Oppenheimer. For Fisher, sculpting is a profoundly philosophical and spiritual act of faith. “My marble sculptures are carved spontaneously and intuitively, relying upon observation and the discipline of drawing.”
