Artists to create unique hanging baskets at The Reach fundraiser

Event takes place Saturday, May 4 at Tanglebank Gardens

Tanglebank Gardens and The Reach Gallery Museum have invited a selection of local artists to participate in a Hanging Basket Makers event in support of The Reach.

The event begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 4 at Tanglebank, 29985 Downes Rd.

The artists will gather under the timbers to create one-of-a-kind living works of art.

“The artists will be using living materials provided by Tanglebank Gardens to create flowering moss hanging baskets, and it will be fun to see what they do with these unconventional materials,” said Laura Schneider, executive director of The Reach.

“I’m sure they will interpret the challenge in some really interesting ways.”

Participating artists are Davida Kidd, Sharon Huget, Barbara Pearson and Bob St. Cyr.

The completed baskets will be on display for two weeks (until May 18), during which time the public will have the chance to vote on their favourite basket and to bid on them in a silent auction.

Proceeds will go to The Reach for public programs and events for audiences of all ages.

Additionally, $5 from any hanging basket sold at Tanglebank during this season will also be donated to The Reach.
