Art Fair in the Garden (Munsinger-Clemens) July 17, 2014

8th Annual Art Fair in the Gardens

Each summer, Munsinger and Clemens Gardens hosts an art fair featuring artists from all around the state. The Eighth Annual Art Fair in the Gardens was held on Thursday, July 17, 2014 from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm.

Led by Kerry Kupferschmidt, the Central MN Watercolorists participated in exhibiting our art for the first time this year.

Visitors were encouraged to browse and purchase some wonderful pieces of artwork to take home and to enjoy the music provided in different areas among the flowers along with food and beverages. In the past, the Art Fair has featured 45-plus area artists.

The day was beautiful with CMW showing and selling paintings, cards and bookmarks.  There were 9 participating CMW artists in this event.
