Sun shines on Allegan's Art in the Garden

Virginia Ransbottom, Staff Writer

The Allegan Area Arts Council's seventh Annual Art in the Garden event was Saturday, April 11, at The Silo banquet facility. The event attracted hundreds to peruse offerings of handmade art inspired by nature and garden-related items.

More than 50 vendors bedazzled shoppers with their wares, and demonstrations and workshops helped visitors create their own garden or other piece of art to take home.
