The Council of Albuquerque Garden Clubs Garden Shop is introducing a new 4 month series called Artists Of The Month. Each month we’ll be featuring different artists with unique floral and garden themed artwork, and exciting designs in jewelry. Our series will run January through April, and each month you’ll have an opportunity to meet the artists who created their work at a special reception. You’ll want to stop in often to check out the ever changing display!
Artists Reception (call for date) in the Garden Shop from noon to 1 pm
