The Rancho Los Alamitos Gardens in Long Beach have invited us to participate in their “Garden, Gourmet and Gallery Series” Autumn Events on Saturday, October 16, 2010, from 9:30am – 5:00pm 6400 Bixby Hill Road, Long Beach, California 90815 (562) 431-3541
The day will feature a lecture on Perennials and Bulbs by John Schoustra, Landscape Architect, and, of course, the drawings and paintings of the Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California.
Members of BAGSC who wish to display and sell their work, prints, cards, etc are welcome to sign up now. Participating members will be required to arrive at 9:00 am to set up, stay until closing and assist in take-down. Rancho Los Alamitos will provide a box lunch for those participating. They would also like to have some artists painting and demonstrating. This will be a good opportunity to meet some new people and introduce ourselves. Rancho Los Alamitos is a lovely garden and house where our work will show off nicely.
If you would like to join us, email your name and agreement to work this event to Leslie Walker. Include the number of paintings, etc. you plan to bring, and if you wish to demonstrate. Also we will need to bring our own display/sales things and take care of our own sales. Additional details about sales, etc., will be available at the end of September/beginning of October.
