The Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden will host the 2019 Art Fair in the Garden in partnership with the Pasadena Society of Artists (PSA) for its Last Sunday Open Day on November 24 from 10am to 4pm.
In its fourth year, the Art Fair has grown in variety and attendance every year making it a busy day full of interesting things to see and shop for in time for the holidays.
The garden is transformed into a natural, open-air gallery with paintings, photographs, ceramics, sculptures and prints by Mariko Bird, Martin Elrich, Kruti Shah, Darien Donner and many more. The PSA Art Fair offers visitors a rare opportunity to meet these wonderful artists and purchase their work for reasonable prices.
Visitors will enjoy miso soup and rice balls from Wholesome Essence, music by Windsong Canyon and shopping for Citron Clothing and the treasures found in Takara-ten, the garden’s gift shop. They can also take home a little piece of the garden by purchasing a potted plant lovingly nurtured from a cutting.
In addition, En Gallery will be featuring the current exhibition, Shades of Gray: Abstract Ink Paintings by Keiko Arai, showing through December 8. All participants are generously giving a percentage of their proceeds to the garden to help fund its educational and cultural programming.
