Witness the unveiling of a masterpiece at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens! The 2017 featured artwork for the 25th anniversary of Art in the Gardens will be revealed on Saturday, July 15. Stroll the Gardens at a special reduced admission, just $5 per person from 3 PM to close. Gather in the Perennial Garden at 4PM for the unveiling of the featured artwork.

This year’s featured artist is internationally acclaimed sculptor John Fisher. After 20 years in Italy, he has established his studio in Northern California with his wife and past AIG featured artist Sandy Oppenheimer. For Fisher, creating is a profoundly philosophical and spiritual act of faith. “My marble sculptures are carved spontaneously and intuitively, relying upon observation and the discipline of drawing,” remarks the artist. Mingle with local creatives and fellow Gardens-enthusiasts. Gain insight into 2017 AIG Featured Artist John Fisher's process and inspirations amidst the summer glory of our garden by the sea.
