Many years ago when I was learning about what venues were best suited for my work my friend Joyce told me about Roger's Gardens. I guess I had heard about it before but when she said something about it my memory was triggered. Roger's is in Corona del Mar, CA. it's pretty amazing and that's putting it lightly.
Each year the stellar cast of designers go to work and create a Halloween boutique. They build the walls and hang the fabric, I am pretty sure Eric and Sylvr conjure magic spells for enchantments as well.This is a video of the crew setting the stage.
It's pure magical. Each year they choose a new theme and selected artists are tasked with creating original works of art for them.
These are picture from Roger's Gardens.
Another delightful entrance to a room filled with wonder!
Deep breathe in...... AHHHHHHH! Don't you love it??
This year I was contacted to be part of the Halloween Boutique! Can you imagine? I was quite elated to be considered. And then panic set in!
You guys, in the past Wendy Addison, Joyce Stahl, Tina Haller, Scott Smith, Will Bezek, Nicol Sayre, Bethany Lowe, Debbie Thibault , and Vergie Lightfoot have had their one of a kind Halloween work displayed in the shop!
I am so happy to tell you that you will be able to purchase several of my pieces at the opening on September 2nd. The theme is Grimm Tales. "Imagine a forest, dark and enchanted…branches creak and leaves rustle as trees close in, obscuring the path home. Wander deep into the shadows and you’ll find frightful folklores, fantastical stories and chilling tales. These bedtime stories will give you nightmares, and you’ll discover that not all fairy tales end happily-ever-after."- Roger's Garden
I hope if you are in California, you are able to stop in and see my babies! Please let me know if you do. I know Roger's Gardens will not disappoint in the display that they create! It will bring our piece to life. Info for Roger's Gardens
