    The Pemberton Arts Council held their second Art & Garden Festival this past weekend. Participants enjoyed the beauty and discovered the history of the gardens and farms on the tours in the Pemberton Valley and the Birken areas. Local artists displayed their art in these lovely garden settings and musicians entertained as the guests strolled or enjoyed lunch in the two beautiful outdoor settings — Pioneer Park in Pemberton and Gates Lake Community Park.

    The PAC board would like to thank the generous garden and studio hosts: Heidi and Fritz Kym, Martha Sturdy, Cheryl Ross and Sara Stewart in Pemberton and Nancy and Rick King, Mike Rogers and Susan Reimer, Rozalind Stanton in Birken.

    Thank you also to the artists: Ingalora Dwyer, Taylor Williams, Martha Sturdy, Valerie Butter and Susie Cipolla, whose art was displayed in the Pemberton gardens. Thanks also to the artists who displayed in Birken: Meg Gallup, Wim Tewinkle, Hiroko Takayo, Karen Love, Sara Wray, Bill Reynolds and Rozalind Stanton.

    A big thank you to Cayley Alexander, Fernando, Sue Stern and Susan Holden, the talented musicians who entertained us. A special thank you goes to our sponsors Rona and Pemberton Valley Nurseries and for the help we received from One Earth, as well as Mathew and Penny from the WB sign shop.

    The success of the Festival was mostly due to the hard work of Anne Crowley, Patti  Rodger–Kirkpatrick  and Penny Maclean, members of the PAC Board who organized the event.

    Thank you on behalf of the Pemberton Arts Council to all who participated.

    Marnie Simon, President
