Attendees learn about the unique work of local artists
BELMONT, N.C. – The holidays are just around the corner and it’s time to get serious about shopping. The Garden is bringing together some of the most popular artists who make their wares available in The Garden Store to demonstrate their work and offer special deals on their products. The Artisan’s will be featured in Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden’s popular speaker series, First Tuesday, on Nov. 3 at noon.
Four local artists will be featured. Jessica Coate is a creative artist with over 17 years of experience in multiple design disciplines including print, web and animation who also has a passion for puppet-making, drawing, photography, sculpture, and crochet. Toni South of Small Keys Soap began testing out different oils and natural remedies for skin, then started making her own products free of toxins. Christine White of C.W. Pottery has developed a style which incorporates natural elements such as shells, plants, and insects into her one-of-a-kind pieces, functional pieces of pottery. Pam Mahaffey of Verve Candles believes in an innovative and environmentally clean wax made from soy beans and utilizes lovely-colored recycled wine bottles to create fragrant candles.
First Tuesday presentations are free with general Garden admission. Admission for Garden members is free, $12.95 for adults, $11.95 for seniors 60+, and $6.95 for children 2-12. Guests are encouraged to bring lunch while enjoying the presentation in the Visitor Pavilion.
