5th Annual Gardens By the Sea Garden Tour
A Great Success!
As planned, the KIFA Garden took place June 7 & 8th. The weather could not have been more perfect. More than 30 artists, including plein air painters, a ceramicist, and a stone sculptor exhibited their talents. More than 100 visitors came from as far as Pennsylvania to enjoy the art and gardens. A special thanks goes out to the garden hosts and hostesses, the tireless docents who helped visitors and artists, and the event organizers.
