Charles Allis Museum Plein Air Art and Garden Sale: Registration deadline April 30th

Plein Air Art and Garden Sale and Allis Garden Restoration

Lest we forget, the Charles Allis is also experiencing the early stages of Spring fever too, and the gardens there are also spectacular in the Spring and Summer months.  To get everyone excited about Spring, planting gardens, and being eco-friendly, the Charles Allis Art Museum will be hosting a Plein Air Art and Garden Sale on Saturday, May 14.  I must admit I am very excited about this event!  Our lovely Ann has put together a press release announcing this event, so without further ado, take it away Ann!

The Charles Allis Art Museum will host Plein Air Art and Garden Sale - "From Our Garden to Yours" on Saturday, May 14 from 9 am to 4 pm.  Local Plein Air artists will paint in the Allis museum's English garden beginning on Thursday, May 12.  Their completed works will be ready for sale at 2:30 pm during Saturday's festivities. 
Additional activities include viewing Plein Air landscapes in the Charles and Sarah Allis collection, the sale of plants, crafts for kids, garden giveaways, and a presentation by The Green Team, Sustainable Landscape Management.  The Green Team will speak about the Allis garden's transformation and display one of their eco-friendly lawn mowers. 
The Charles Allis event staff thanks Johnson's Nursery, The Flower Source and The Green Team for their sponsorship of Plein Air Art and Garden Sale-"From Our Garden to Yours." 
Plan to attend this family, admission-free day at Milwaukee's Charles Allis Art Museum located at 1801 N. Prospect Avenue.
