Third RMSBA Tagawa Sale Blooms!

RMSBA Art Sale at Tagawa Greenhouses Showcases Botanical Art
We had a lilght-filled and well-traveled location within the greenhouses this year, our  third sales event at this venue. Tagawa graciously provides us with this opportunity in the spring. It supports botanical art, and also brings in art lovers who love gardening and flowers too. Our location gave us provided us with more visitors at a steadier rate than in previous years, as well as better conditions for visitors to view the artworks. Sales totaled about $2000.

Thanks to all the participating artists, volunteers who manned the display and assisted with sales, and to the organizers, ably chaired by Mary Jo Ramsdale. The 2012 Sale is scheduled for April, and we’re looking at possibilities of expanded sales opportunities during specialty events at Tagawa, including the Rose Society, African Violet Society, Daylily Society and the Edible Plant Growers.
