Mark your calendars and plan to join us for our fourth annual ART IN THE GARDEN and SPARKLING TEA!

The ART IN THE GARDEN portion of our event will be held on the front lawn and sculpture area of the Shemer Art Center.  This fun, all-day event will feature a colorful display of garden-themed artist tents, full of a wide variety of artists from all over Arizona showcasing the latest in florals, botanicals, ceramics, wood and wearable art.  Plus there will be hourly art & garden demonstrations, live music, food & beverage vendors, and a garden art raffle! Guests can also view our two exhibitions currently on display inside and visit our gift shop! 


From 1-3 p.m. we will hold our separate and ticketed SPARKLING TEA event, set under a shade structure created of colorful umbrellas on our back, garden patio.  Live music and a menu of scones, finger sandwiches and petite pastries will be complemented by a short program with guest speakers and of course, teas and a sparkling accompaniment!  An award will also be presented during the tea for the most artistic garden hat!  Tickets for this event will be sold per person and tables of 8-10 may be purchased in groups!
