Tickets can be purchased at Kreans Gallery and the Brass Lantern in Metuchen. They also may be ordered by mail through August 10.

What a gala event was Art in the Garden 3! While the temperature was typical of mid-July in NJ, more than 100 guests took advantage of the unique event to tour the five residential gardens and enjoy the art exhibited and performed in them. From "take-away" poetry to visual art created right in each garden, to live music to "living sculptures": each garden presented a distinctive attraction beyond the natural environmental art each resident gardener developed. In addition to the Master Gardener, and Birding expert on site to answer the questions of individual tour-takers, this tour included an agricultural garden created by a landscape architect and vegan chef. To say there was something for everyone is to put it mildly!
Stay tuned for news of the 2009 date of Tour 4...even more ideas are afoot at the Edison Arts Society!!
