‘Garden as an Art Form’ class fetches large crowd
|Fredericksburg artist Ellen Worthy Stokes spoke to participants in the May 3 event, “The Garden as an Art Form,” of the Tappahannock Artists Guild.|
On May 3 Fredericksburg artist Ellen Worthy Stokes and homeowner/gardener David Henderson taught the elements of art as applied to the landscape to a near sell-out crowd. This class, sponsored by the Tappahannock Artists Guild (TAG), was held at historic Little Egypt in Tappahannock.
The audience, composed of artists, gardeners, friends and curiosity seekers, studied line, color, texture, and composition as it related to Henderson’s expansive garden beds. Participants enjoyed a gourmet lunch presented in colorful lunch bags, each a work of art hand-painted by members of the River Country Painters.
Ann Beverley Eubank and Jackie Leavitt, members of the guild, provided the 70 participants an opportunity to experience art in progress as the two artists painted plein air.
